Reviews for Roasted Pepper Ravioli Bake
"To make roasting peppers a LOT easier, first cut them in half from stem to bottom, clean them out, then roast them. This makes it so much easier than trying to handle whole, slippery peppers."
"I haven't tried this receipe yet, but I have used a similar one for lasagna. I am going to use prepared roasted red peppers and make sure I use enough sauce to keep the dish moist. The fun part of an easy dish like this is choosing the type of ravioli, type of sauce and add-on items like mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, etc. Lots of cheese always helps."
"We did not like this. Not much flavor. We felt like it wS just bland. I will not make again,"
"Tasty. I also used jar roasted peppers but you have to use a lot. I used ravioli with spinach too. The dish seemed a little dry and will add more sauce next time. I will also cook up some Italian turkey sausage in spaghetti sauce and this should fix the need for extra sauce tonight. This would probably be a nice dish for a crowd."
"This was AH-MAZING!!! I don't even really like peppers, but this was fantastic! So much flavor in every bite! The only downside was peeling the peppers, so I only peeled off the charred and very blistered areas to save time, and that seemed to work just fine. Loved this!"
"This was excellent!! I didn't use as many peppers as the recipe called for and just cut them bite-sized. Even my picky eaters went back for more!!"
"I make this quite often. My husband and I are on Weight Watchers and this recipe works well. I have also used jars roasted peppers and it tastes the same."
"The recipe was very bland and broiling the peppers was very time consuming. It lacked any flavor besides the spaghetti sauce. Nothing special and will not make again."
