Top with 6 oz of shredded cheese and bake at 350 F for 20 - 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Serve hot on plates. Optionally, top with grated Parmesan cheese.

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. Annie, the cheese looks perfect. I want to sit right down and grab a big spoonful. Thanks for the tips on frozen ravioli.

    1. You’re right. The thick layer of cheese makes all the difference. My family barely left a spoonful for me. LOL.
