Recipe Notes about Frozen Ravioli
Because I do not bother to make my own ravioli, I have become an expert at buying frozen ravioli. The number one lesson is buy quality. That is to say, less expensive budget ravioli does not cook or taste as good as quality ravioli. Second, buy cheese (not meat) ravioli. Generally, food companies (even the good ones) tend to use low quality meat. Rely on freshly purchased meat for better flavor and less chemicals.

- 1 tbsp oregano flakes
- 1 tbsp parsley flakes
- 12 oz frozen ravioli ( see note below )
- 8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

- Boil frozen ravioli until half to three quarters done. Drain and set aside. Stir in a little olive oil to keep ravioli noodles from sticking together.
