Toasted Ravioli + Cheesy Marinara Sauce | Creme de la Crumb

My brother is the sauce king. A title appointed by me. When we were growing up he would come up with these sauces for dipping everything and I still remember the day he combined cream cheese and marinara sauce for dipping breadsticks.

Life. Changed.

Toasted Ravioli + Cheesy Marinara Sauce | Creme de la Crumb

I’ve whipped up that 2 ingredient concoction so many times I’ve lost count and when I made toasted ravioli, I new exactly what it needed – cheesy marinara. The ravioli was delicious by itself, it really was, but by kicking the ingredient list up from 4 ingredients to 6, the whole thing becomes AHmazing.

Is it possible to use frozen ravioli? Would I need to thaw first? This would be a great appetizer for a party.
Thanks

    Yes absolutely – just be sure to prepare it according to the package’s instructions so that they are cooked through. 🙂

This looks amazing! Are you supposed to use fresh ravioli or frozen? Should you cook the ravioli first? Thank you!

    Hi Andrea! Sorry for the confusion, just updated the directions to include preparing the ravioli according to package instructions – then pat dry before tossing in the egg mixture. You can use thawed frozen ravioli or fresh. 🙂

      Thank you! I can’t wait to try these!

These look so yummy Tiffany, and so easy too – yum!

    Thanks Roxana! Gotta love quick and easy appetizers!!

Should the ravioli be cooked according to package directions first, or do the pasta and filling cook completely during baking?

    Hi Glenda, Thank you so much for noticing that, I am updating that part of the instructions right now – they do need to be cooked according to package instructions, then dabbed off with a paper towel!

OMG There is one thing that I like and that is toasted ravioli. This recipe is a winner with your sauce. Great combination.
