Crusted Ravioli

Here is a fun idea for serving ravioli… rather than hiding them in some sort of sauce, why not knock the sauce to the side and make the ravioli the main attraction? It’s now a finger food, great for dipping or snacking. 

Ingredients:

1 pound frozen ravioli
1/2 tsp salt (for water)
1/2 TBS oil
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
1/2 tsp salt (for crumbs)
Ideas for dipping:
Marinara sauce
Alfredo sauce
Tomato soup
Cheese fondue 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 F.
Boil a pot of water with salt. Put the ravioli in the boiling water and let it boil until the ravioli floats to the top (3-5 minutes). Drain the ravioli and rinse with cold water to cool off. Place back in the pot and drizzle the oil over the ravioli. Stir to coat the ravioli with the oil.
Put the bread crumbs, salt and cheese in a bowl and mix together. Put several ravioli in the bowl to crust them with the bread crumbs. Place on a baking sheet. Repeat until all the ravioli are crusted.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. 
Serve with your choice of sauce, or eat them alone!
