Ravioli is truly a genius invention. It’s as if someone took the already perfect invention of pasta and thought, “What would happen if we turned these into perfect little pockets and stuffed them with cheese?” The result is the no-fail cheese ravioli we all know and love. Try stuffing yours with sage ricotta and sprinkling with parmesan for a sophisticated take on this unassuming dish.

Lasagna is more than a pasta dish. In many families, it’s a timeworn tradition. And really, is there anything more satisfying than warming up a nice big slice of leftover lasagna from the night before? Somehow, it’s almost as good, if not better, than enjoying it fresh from the oven. There are many variations on this perfect comfort food. Optional ingredients include eggplant, spinach, and Italian sausage. Additionally, white sauce lasagna is a great alternative!
