Denise’s Toasted Ravioli Recipe

by Denise on September 13, 2012

When we go out to our favorite Italian restaurant I always like to get the toasted ravioli appetizer but they disappear so fast that I decided to start making them at home so I could have more than one or two in a sitting. They’re so good and so easy to make that I could eat them for my whole meal, but they do make for a nice simple appetizer and they’re perfect for entertaining too!

All you need to make this delicious dish are a few simple ingredients that you likely already have on hand.

Serve your toasted ravioli as an appetizer or they make a great side dish to go along with a dinner salad  or pasta. Include some marinara or spaghetti sauce for dipping and watch them disappear!

You bet! Just place your breaded ravioli on a lightly greased baking sheet and cook at 375 for about 12 to 14 minutes.
