More About This Recipe
  • Ever wonder: what exactly is ravioli? Is it pasta? Is it a dumpling? The answer is…both! The technical definition of “dumpling” is a cooked mass of dough with some sort of filling. Ravioli is a type of dumpling, with its filling sealed between two thin layers of pasta dough. Ravioli, as you may already know, is Italian, but the broader category of “dumpling” reaches far and wide—there are wontons in China, sweet and savory pierogis in Eastern Europe and chicken and dumplings in America. Though ravioli originated in Italy, it has become a household favorite in the United States, too. Recipes like this Italian Sausage and Ravioli Casserole take the filled pasta to the next level by layering it with sauce, sausage and cheese. There are many more that put a creative spin on ravioli, and you don’t want to miss out! Try any one of our delicious takes on ravioli ASAP.
