Today we are cheating and winning. That’s right, cheaters can win and we’re showing you how. Picture this, you’re craving ravioli, like always. It’s a weeknight. There’s no time to make fresh pasta. You could use the store-bought, pre-stuffed kind but what’s actually in those pockets, nobody knows. Here’s where the affair begins, our love affair with pre-made, fresh lasagna sheets. Buy them, take them home, romance them. It’s ok, you get a pass tonight. Indulge in some goat cheese, bathe in some brown butter, all the forbidden foods when you’re watching your waistline. Tomorrow you'll get back on track, but tonight we rendezvous with ravioli.


  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 10 fresh sage leaves
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 fresh lasagna sheets
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • salt (staples)
  • pepper (staples)
  • 3 tablespoons butter (staples)
  • lemon zest (optional - add to ravioli filling)
  • rosemary (or thyme, optional - use any fresh herb in the brown butter sauce)
  • Did you make this?

    1. Hot pot - Place a large pot over high heat and fill half-way with hot water. Add a large pinch of salt and bring to a boil.
    2. Make the filling - Grab a large bowl. Open your goat cheese and crumble into the bowl. Finely chop your sage leaves and add them to the bowl. Grate the parm and the nutmeg over the bowl. Season with salt and plenty of pepper. Crush the filling with a spoon.
    3. Build ravioli - Lay your lasagna sheets on a floured surface. Grab a glass and dip the rim in flour. Cut circles out of your lasagna dough, using the rim of the glass. Save your scraps! Fill your glass with a bit of water. Lay out half of your ravioli circles and place a ball of the goat cheese mixture in each one. Pick up a filled ravioli circle in one hand, with your other hand, dip your finger in the water. Run your finger around the edge of the ravioli. Now grab an empty circle and place it on top. Squeeze the edges together to seal it tightly. Repeat with the remaining rounds.

    This was insanely good!!!! Thank you Joel, what an amazing recipe. I wasn’t able to find fresh lasagna sheets so I just cooked boxed lasagna sheets for 2 minutes to get them soft enough for the glass. This was so delicious and I enjoyed this video so much!
