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!
