If you are like me, then you probably gravitate towards most any pasta dish. Toasted Ravioli is no exception. If I make this as an appetizer, then every time I pass by, I grab 1 or 2 or … and before I know it, they’re all gone. Oopsy.

Originally created in Italy, of course, this dish was then later popularized in St Louis, MO! What?! That’s a long way from Italy, but we thank you Missouri! Typically you will find them breaded then deep fried and served with a marinara sauce. Sounds a bit fried, but tasty, but for this recipe we are steering clear of the deep fryer and going for toasted in the oven. Yah.

Some people like to use the frozen cheese ravioli, which works well, but I prefer to use the fresh from the refrigerated section. The recipe calls for cheese ravioli, but you can be adventurous and try other flavored varieties.

Just remember they are addictive and it’s okay to share.
