I served one jumbo ravioli as an appetizer, but serving two or three would make a good entree. The ravioli I used were about 2 inches in diameter, but I imagine you could use whatever size you can find.


  1. Cook the ravioli according to package directions. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425°F and chop the basil.
  3. Place ravioli on a parchment lined baking pan. Layer each ravioli with a slice of tomato, then season with salt and pepper. Then continue with with the basil then the cheese.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes (or until the cheese is melted and the ravioli edges start to brown). Drizzle with the olive oil and serve.

We loved this! Quick and easy to prepare, with all of the wonderful caprese flavors! I used spinach and cheese ravioli and basil from the garden. Thanks for sharing! ZWT7

Simple and beautiful. I love that the tomato and basil bake on to the pasta and almost create a sauce. I used several cheese tortellini grouped together as that is what I had on hand. I also added minced garlic with the basil. Delightful and easy! Thanks Chef!
