They are perfect for serving as an appetizer for tailgating or when friends come over for a party. They also make a delicious side dish for serving alongside a big bowl of tomato soup or even for the kids for lunch. Love!

    Fried ravioli is the best! I love this lightened up version because that just means I’ll have 2 servings instead of 1!

    Great idea to lighten them up! I agree with Chung-Ah … maybe that means I can have another?

    I love fried ravioli, too. I hate actually frying things, though, because it makes such a huge mess. I love being able to stick things in the oven instead. Great idea.
