Get Toasted

Someone on a list I belong to sent a recipe for toasted ravioli. It sounded so good, I just had to try it. I bought some spinach and ricotta ravioli and some mushroom ravioli from Trader Joe's. Just dip the ravioli in milk and then in bread crumbs. I seasoned the breadcrumbs with some oregano, garlic seasoning and onion seasoning but you could by seasoned breadcrumbs. Put the coated ravioli on baking sheet and spray both sides with olive oil. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, turning once. Dip in marinara. Delicious!

The person who sent us the recipe explained toasted ravioli are commonly found in St. Louis. Now you can have them where ever you live. The recipe on the wikipedia page has you make your own and uses an egg mixture for dipping. They also deep fry them. I think the deep fried would be too greasy plus I don't like to deep fry at home. The baked ravioli were perfect for me.

Sounds great! I made toasted mini raviolis as an appetizer for a party many years ago, but I'd forgotten all about them. Have to try it again....

There is an Italian restaurant here that has a toasted ravioli appetizer that I've been ordering for at least 15 years. It's delicious, but they are fried, not really toasted. False advertising!
