Toasted Ravioli is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Foodie Extravaganza. We get together once a month to post recipes for a food holiday occurring that month. This month our topic is on ravioli recipes for National Ravioli Day. What a great way to get Spring off to a great start!
I chose to do toasted ravioli since it is a local favorite of my hometown of St. Louis. Everybody loves the food out on “The Hill” which is the nickname for the old Italian neighborhood.
As popularity goes, these crispy appetizers have spread worldwide. You can dunk them in what you want. I prefer pizza sauce.
You can also choose whichever type fresh ravioli (from the refrigerated section of the market). I don’t prefer frozen, but you could use those thawed. But these are meant to be fried uncooked, so don’t pick out anything dried, and don’t boil them first.
