Recipe Number: 379
Calories Per Serving:
|1 pound cheese ravioli
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried basil
|1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon crumbled dried parsley
olive oil cooking spray
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
|Cook the ravioli according to the package directions until tender. Drain well. Meanwhile, in a flat bowl mix together the bread crumbs, parmesan, and herbs. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Generously spray two cookie sheets with the cooking spray. Roll the wet ravioli in the bread crumb mixture and place on the prepared sheets. Lightly spray the ravioli with some additional cooking spray. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with the tomato sauce, which can be either hot, chilled, or at room temperature.
|These savory little bites are a festive way to serve pasta as an appetizer. I like using a chunky fresh tomato sauce if I am having a sit down party. If it is a party where people are moving around and don't have the ability to cut larger sized ravioli I serve mini ravioli with a smooth tomato sauce which makes dipping easier. You can also use tortellini or other filled pasta with this recipe with great results.
