Immediately sprinkle with cheese, if desired. Carefully insert a lollipop stick into back of each ravioli. Serve warm with marinara sauce and pesto.

We really enjoyed these! I omitted the red pepper flakes since my little one can't handle the heat. I ended up ditching the sticks for mine but my daughter loved the idea of eating a ravioli this way!! I love that no seasoning mixes were used but rather my own spices!

Very nice little appetizer * Goes together very quickly. I used packaged Tortellini as that is what I had on hand. I pre cooked the dried pasta for just a few minutes to soften up. That aids in making the coating stick to the pasta.. I also added a small slice of Grape Tomato to each speared crispy fried Tortellini. I have made very similar recipes before and it has always been a winner. I have served them with both spaghetti and pizza sauce. Both are very good.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor
