Mac and Cheese Ravioli


Yo Dawg, I heard you like pasta, so I put pasta inside your pasta. Yup. These ravioli were amazing. My favorite thing stuffed inside my other favorite thing. If this incorporated pizza somehow I think my head would have exploded. A perfect tomato sauce and tender homemade pasta, wrapped around a creamy mac and cheese.

First I made a simple stovetop style mac and cheese and allowed it to cool and harden.

Who needs brownies or rice krispy treats when you have these mac and cheese squares!

Then we just made a bunch of ravioli. We were having friends over so we needed to make 60, but we busted through it no problem.

I refrigerated these overnight after they were nice and dried out.

They cooked about 7 minutes to get the pasta nice and tender and the mac and cheese hot inside. Then of course they go right into the sauce after they are boiled.

We served them with some spicy Italian sausages.

So good!

Some of the people eating didnt even know what was inside these, so it was a cool suprise for them.

Xzibit approves.

The mac and cheese:
1 lb pasta
16 oz cheddar
16 oz jack
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons butter
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
3 cups milk
Bring water to a boil and cook your pasta. Cook the onion in the butter for about 5 minutes. Toss in the garlic. Next add the flour and whisk well to combine. Cook about 3 minutes stirring the whole time. Add in the milk and whisk well to eliminate any lumps. Bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Add in the pasta, then mix in the cheese. stir until all the cheese melts, putting it back on to low heat if necessary. Pour the pasta on to a baking sheet and refrigerate until hardened.

Make your pasta and sauce and form your ravioli. We stored them in the fridge overnight, and cooked them in boiling water about 7 minutes until the pasta was tender and the mac and cheese was nice and hot inside.


I can just imagine Xzibit in the last frame saying, "Yo Dawg, I couldn't have even thought of these Raviolis myself." He looks so serious and amazed, as he should.
hahahahaha - these look awesome.

Oh. My. Goodness.
This is by far the best idea anyone has ever come up with. I had a mac and cheese pannini at a cafe I frequent and people looked at me like I was crazy. By far my favorite side dish to pasta is more pasta.

Well done! I might have to try this soon :)

Another genius combination that my brain would have never thought of!

wow! thats pretty innovative....great pic by pic recipe. loved it!

This is like the pasta equivalent of turducken but i could not be happier to have found it. Genius.

Those look delicious. After your pizza suggestion, I can't help but picture huge mac & cheese raviolis topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella & pepperoni (or sausage and peppers? Canadian bacon and pineapple?) bubbling under the broiler. Yum.

this post made me fall in love with your blog, and now you're the top of my list! so inventive, and pretty funny too.
