This appetizer is best made with fresh ravioli; not the frozen. I have used both the spinach and cheese ravioli and the all-cheese ravioli, but feel free to experiment on your own. This recipe is from Rachael Ray. You may want to double the recipe - it is so good!

Delightful appy - made for a friend that was over the other night ans she loved this! I used the all cheese but plan to try others! Nice flavor and change from the usual! **Made for Beverage Tag January 2008**
I couldn't find the right ravioli, had to settle for chicken garlic, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Was and easy, fun meal with great taste. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your football pool win.
