Homemade Raviolis

Ravioli are a type of dumpling with a filling inside thin pasta dough. They are usually served in broth or with a sauce, and they originated as a traditional food in Italian cuisine.

My German roots go deep and involve lots of good recipes, and many meals around the table. One favorite recipe that we’ve made, and I still feel my mom mastered it the best in the kitchen, is Fleischkuekle, which is like a pasta pocket filled with meat (reminds me of a ravioli).

Ravioli are commonly square, but you can also make them circular and semi-circular.

Friends, instead of being frenzied and rushed this time of year, I like to think of coming together as a gentle reminder to slow down, give thanks, enjoy our friends, and the beauty around us.

This year, everything still feels new where we live. Even though we’re in a smaller space, we still host, but we like to keep it simple.

We’re also focusing on fewer commitments, less holiday decor and clutter! And more gatherings, more memories, and more slowing down …

From years of hosting, I’ve learned to get a date on the calendar early, when it comes to specific people we want to host. Just this week we got a few dates on the calendar!

Decide who you want to get to know better, and who you can connect with. Creating the guest list with a mix of people can make a really fun party!

Some meals are quick and easy, like a delicious, cozy chili feed, or a one-pot meal, a slow-cooker meal, or even soup night. And there’s always room for new people, or last-minute, too!

Fig Raviolis

The recipe I’m sharing today you have to plan ahead.

It’s not your usual company dish, because it involved homemade pasta. I would say it’s more dinner partyish. So consider it a real “treat.”

Fig Sweet Potato Raviolis Recipe

(Divide recipe in half for lesser serving)
Prep Time: 45 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 1 hr


  • 2 baked sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2. tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 6 dried figs finely chopped
  • 3 3/4 cup flour
  • 6 eggs
  • Salt


  • In medium bowl, combine sweet potato, mascarpone, salt, figs, pepper, and cinnamon. Mix together until smooth. Set aside.
  • On large surface, pour flour into a mound, adding two pinches of salt. Make a crater in the center and pour in lightly beaten eggs. With fork, mix eggs and flour together, kneading until smooth. Add 2-3 tablespoons of milk if dough feels too dry. Divide dough into 6 balls. Allow dough to sit for 30 minutes until room temperature.
  • Using a pasta machine or a rolling pin, roll out pasta into thin sheets. Make sure surface is well floured to prevent sticking.
  • Place about 1 tablespoon of filling—in ball form—onto the sheet. Repeat this 12-15 times, making sure the filling is lined up in even rows and each ball is spread out about 1 1/2’’ apart—I ended up with four rows of three balls. Using your finger, wet the edges of the ball with water to encourage the edges sticking together. Lay a sheet of pasta over the top. Press down around filling until pasta is sealed. Using a sharp knife, pasta cutter, or pizza cutter, cut ravioli into squares. I used a fork to press down and seal the edges.
  • In a large pot, boil water with about 1/4 cup of salt. When water is boiling, add in pasta and cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove and drain pasta when time is up.
  • Serve warm with freshly grated Parmesan, cracked pepper, and fresh thyme.
