      Gooey cheesy goodness! I didn't have the right pasta, so I made it with medium shells, otherwise followed the recipe ( I may have snuck in more cheese, shh, don't tell! ) I think this would be great with cooked chicken and broccoli added to be served as a main dish. Thanks for posting, made for Zaar Stars

      What an interesting recipe! I did find I couldn't leave the pasta to fry away, it needed a lot of watching to make sure it didn't stick, maybe that was just me. The children experienced fried ravioli in Switzerland, and so also were interested by this concept. I did up the amount of sauce, I like a lot of sauce with my pasta, but otherwise, as recipe, this was really good and very much to my taste, rich and creamy with a chewy texture added by frying the pasta. Oh, I did fry a little bacon and sprinkle on top, just as a little added extra! Thanks Teresa, glad I tried this! Made for I Recommend tag game.
