Mom's Ravioli Filling and Dough Recipe::

This is my Mom's Recipe!  I make my dough a little different but her filling and dough were wonderful.  You may want to try it her way..

Note:  The only difference I make in my Ravioli filling is that I eliminate the *nutmeg. 

Happy Baking and Cooking !!!

1 tbsp. oil
1 small onion chopped fine or grated
1 tsp.salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. nutmeg*
1 pkg. chopped spinach  or swiss chard (cooked and drained)
1/2 to 1 cup Italian grated cheese(Romano only)
1/1/4 cups bread crumbs
1 egg well beaten

Fry meat in oil add salt, pepper, nutmeg* and chopped onion. Cook until browned..Add cooked spinach. Cook several minutes then take off stove add cheese, breadcrumbs and egg..Mix well until blended..Cool until ready to use.

Cook Jumbo Shells as directed on package.  Fill each shell with a heaping T of filling.  Layer shells with red sauce and top with more grated Italian cheese and handful of mozzeralla cheese.  Bake 350 degrees approx. 30 to 45 minutes covered or until bubbly.
