If you’ve read our blog before, you’ve probably noticed an article about the best foods to stuff in ravioli. Sure, there are plenty of great things that you can make ravioli with. However, with every great Italian recipe comes a much more unorthodox version lying in the shadows. For every great ravioli stuffer, there’s an even weirder one waiting in the wings. So, what exactly are the weirdest foods to stuff in ravioli? We’ll show you some of the oddest pairings we’ve found!


Would you believe us if we told you that there was a ravioli recipe that combines pears and cheese? If not, consider yourself fooled! A recipe for pear and cheese ravioli does exist. They claim that the sweetness of the pears compliments the cheese well. It’s rich and unorthodox but also serves as a healthier alternative for those looking for some health benefits.

Sweet Potatoes

If you’re looking for something unorthodox to serve at your next Thanksgiving dinner, this recipe could be right up your alley! The only difference between this and regular ravioli is that the cheese is swapped out for sweet potatoes. Given that this side dish goes well with a little bit of butter and seasoning, the same can be added here to really bring out the flavors.


Speaking of unusual ravioli dishes to serve during the fall months, is there any food more synonymous with the season than pumpkin? It doesn’t mean that you can put it in ravioli though! Pumpkin squash, like this recipe suggests, has a very odd taste. However, it claims to have a taste so good that people are clamoring for the recipe. Whether or not that holds up is up to you to decide, but you could make it and see for yourself!


Ravioli isn’t usually thought of as a breakfast food, but this recipe may change your mind. Think of the satisfaction of the egg yolk flowing down your breakfast sandwich, and apply that to every individual ravioli.
