This is my very favorite from all kind of filled pastas. I grow up eating cheese ravioli as a kid and it got stuck in my palate. Back when I was younger and I was waking up alone all by my self in the house or I had the chance to cook for myself and try to impress my mother, this was my first choice.
I had a great pasta factory on the same block as my house and Don Luciano ( an old Italian man ) was a very kind person that lived down the street from me. I couldn't reach the countertop of his pasta shop or even had money ( he knew I was home alone and my parents will pay him later) so he used to give me 1 Kg. of his fresh made Cheese Ravioli and a little container of his wonderful fresh Tomato sauce. Then I would run to my house and just throw the pasta in the boiling water and wait for them to float to the top of the cooking pot. Then I would cautiously drain the water and put the sauce from the container into the pot. One of my big secrets is with the heat of the boiled pasta and the heat of the pot's wall, the sauce heats up instantly.
Results.......just one cooking pot to cleaning and the used plate. A lot less mess to clean than any other cooked meal.
