Wikipedia: Ravioli
Ravioli (Italian pronunciation: [raˈvjɔːli]; singular: raviolo) are a type of dumpling composed of a filling sealed between two layers of thin pasta dough. Usually served either in broth or with a pasta sauce, they originated as a traditional food in Italian cuisine. Ravioli are typically square, though other forms are also used, including circular or semi-circular (mezzelune).

Chinese friend of mine told me he was taught that Americans don’t say “dumpling,” they say “ravioli.” I never realized how similar boiled dumplings and ravioli were until I tried to explain the difference to him.
