Breaded Ravioli

These lightly toasted ravioli, baked instead of deep-fried, are much kinder to your waistline, Michelle Smith reports. "The homemade tomato and green pepper salsa is the best I've ever tried," she writes from Sykesville, Maryland.

    I gave this recipe 4 stars only b/c I don't make the Italian salsa part of the recipe. However, we do enjoy the crispy outside of the creamy cheese -stuffed ravioli with a homemade marinara. I use a combination of Panko and seasoned bread crumbs and I have used a creamy Cesar dressing in place of the Italian with success. It is a simple and fairly quick meal.

    I've made them with cheese ravioli, and I actually prefer them that way. Really delicious. Great as an appetizer or for sister and I make these when we get together a lot!

    [quote user="sharonanng"]Can this be made with cheese ravioli? Anybody ever try that?[/quote]    I only use the cheese ravioli!   And I've made it with all brands, store or regular and it always comes out great.   When I feel lazy I dip them in jarred sauce.   :)  Oh, and I've premade them up to the baking point and refrigerated them til game time, or whatever.    I've also frozen them baked, and reheated them through on cookies sheets.   Great little recipe. Give them a try!
