Easy Butternut Squash Ravioli

Rating: 4.5 stars 175
These easy butternut squash ravioli are a terrific way to use up leftover roasted butternut squash. They can stand in equally well as either the ideal appetizer or as an elegant main dish for dinner. The secret? Wonton wrappers instead of pasta make these ravioli incredibly easy.

Ricotta Gnocchi

Rating: 4.5 stars 708
This recipe was passed down to me from my great aunt, it is easy, authentic and delicious! The secret to making these gnocchi is to dry the ingredients as much as you can before using. Let the ricotta drain of excess water by placing it in a strainer over a bowl and leaving it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before using.

Vodka Pasta a la Guido

Penne with a rich, spicy pink sauce. Save it for special occasions. Your family or friends will think you slaved for hours to create it. Increase or decrease the red pepper flakes to your taste.

Healthier World's Best Lasagna

Rating: 4.5 stars 72
This truly is the World's Best Lasagna! I love this recipe but I am always looking for ways to take out the fat when I cook. I substituted lean ground turkey and turkey sausage for the meat. I also used lite mozzarella and cut out the egg and salt.
