Be sure to make enough of these crispy, coated ravioli. They're bound to be the hit of your party. The golden-brown pillows are easy to pick up and dip in tomatoey sauce. —Kate Dampier, Quail Valley, California

"It might have been considered low fat because it has less than 1g. per ravioli. When I submitted the recipe, it was not under a low fat category."

"These were delicious and for others out there watching their calories, the nutritional information is listed above. if you feel this isn't an appropriate recipe for your diet, then so be it. But you don't need to make such negative comments, keep them to yourself. Didn't your mother ever teach you manners? Thanks for a great recipe!"

"I didn't make this, but how can this possibly be in the category of "Low Fat" recipes? Does anyone review these before they get categorized? Fried cheese is not a low fat item."
