A fun weekend dinner for your kids or an appetiser or cocktail party food with a difference for you… you choose.
These Baked Ravioli Bites by food blogger Veggie Mama are seriously fast and easy to make.
“The possibilities are in no way limited to cheese ravioli with pasta sauce,” says Veggie Mama author Stacey. “You can use any flavour ravioli (and yes, I know these are actually agnolotti!) and any flavour sauce. You could even hand-make the ravioli if you are so inclined… and have the time.”
“I like to bake these, as they come out just a little crisper than fried. But fried helps to cook the ravioli dough better. It’s up to you! It’s probably easier to throw them in the oven, you can fit more in and they don’t have to be watched so intensely.”
1. Dip ravioli first into egg and then into breadcrumbs. You can add spices and flavourings to the breadcrumbs if you like, but I prefer to keep these simple.
2. Place on a baking sheet and spray lightly with oil. Bake at 180C for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
3. Serve with your favourite pasta sauce.
