"A delicious meal that combines the freshness of homemade pesto and the decadence of the sausage and ricotta ravioli stuffing. A sure-fire hit with your loved ones. This recipe can be made more figure-friendly by using wheat pasta, and chicken instead of sausage." — foodietx

I didn't actually make the pasta/only the pesto sauce...I was looking for a pesto recipe for another recipe that needed pesto sauce in it. This one was a keeper. For the "to taste" I used 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper. Update: I later made it again as a whole recipe. Everyone liked it though I did cut down on the cayenne....used less and used red pepper flakes (what I had on hand) as I thought it would be a little too spicy for our tastes.
I just made the filling portion of this ravioli--I made my own pasta and used the best marinara sauce yet recipe for the sauce. I am giving this 5 stars based on the filling, which was delicious with just the right amount of heat. I did use mild Italian sausage and the full amount of cayenne pepper and it was perfect.
A lot of work, but VERY good!!!! I didn't do the Pesto sauce instead I made a Alfado tomato sauce to go with it.
Great recipe. It was a bit of tedious work to make the raviolis but it was worth it in the end.
Facil y muy gourmet, está deliciosa... gracias por compartir
I thought that this was a great recipe. I only used the filling for the ravioli this time and it was a winner. We made our own pasta sheets and stamped out our ravioli. The stuffing made about 145 small raviolis, which was way more than 6 servings for us. I laid them out on a cookie sheet and flash froze them and moved them to food storage bags. I figure that our family of three will get 3 meals out of this recipe.
Good recipe. I strained and set them in warm hunts spagetti sauce with a sprinkle of parm and fresh parsley. Fun to make - the filling makes alot of ravioli!
Simple to make and everyone loved it. Can't ask for more than that.
