More About This Recipe
  • Though nowadays there are so many shapes, sizes and fillings for ravioli, the traditional recipe features square-sized ravioli filled with ricotta and is served with a red sauce. Some experienced home cooks will make the pasta dough from scratch and form the ravioli squares by sandwiching two sheets of dough together with the filling inside, and then cutting with a pasta cutter into individual squares with wavy edges. There is no shame in buying frozen or refrigerated ravioli, though! It makes a great quick fix for dinner, and tastes just as good as the scratch stuff. And when it’s taken up a notch, like in this baked ravioli casserole that’s reminiscent of lasagna, it tastes even better. We can’t just stop at this quick casserole, though! There are many ways to enjoy ravioli beyond just tossing it with sauce, and they can all be found right here .
