Ravioli Filling, Gorgonzola Green Onion (D, TNT)
Source: Self
Yield: About 18 ravioli

1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese (or equivalent blue cheese)
2 stalks green onion, roots removed
1 egg
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Salt, pepper
Matzo meal/bread crumbs

Sauté garlic until translucent. In a food processor, puree Gorgonzola, egg and green onion until it makes a thick mixture. Add garlic, salt, pepper and enough matzo meal/bread crumbs to give the mixture body.

Fill and seal your ravioli.

I do a lot of experimentation with ravioli fillings and have yet to have a failure (well, that is, one that doesn't taste good!). Since I've been teaching pasta making, I have tried to stress that the only limit to what you can create is the limit you put on your imagination!

One alternative in these fillings: you can add a well-beaten (but not cooked) egg to any of these to give the filling a fuller, more rounded texture. It is, however, optional.

Remember, if you're making your own ravioli, don't just experiment with the filling. Try combining different flavored doughs with filling: I love doing a salmon filling with lemon pasta dough. Or, tomato dough with a simple combination cheese filling (Parmesan, Romano, Gouda).

And think about how it's all going to look: try tomato sauce over green (spinach) ravioli!
