Easy and Delicious Ravioli Recipes

Many families have a go-to pasta dish that is served at least once a week. That favorite meal helps prevent food boredom.

Buitoni has introduced two new ravioli flavors that take inspiration from favorite meals. These recipes are sure to please the whole family! Pepperoni & Cheese and Chicken Parmesan.

Baked Ravioli with Spaghetti Sauce

Baked ravioli is a no-fuss dinner that’s perfect for quick and easy weeknight meals. Just dump and bake, and it’s on the table in 30 minutes for a hearty meal your family will love.

A casserole dish is filled with layers of cheesy baked pasta, topped with a robust marinara sauce and a touch of breadcrumbs. It’s perfect for a quick, one-pot meal or casual entertaining and it’s freezer friendly!

For an extra flavor boost, add in spinach to this casserole. It’s also a great way to use up any leftover ground beef you have.

You can also make this casserole ahead of time and freeze it for later – it’s so easy to prep it a day or two in advance, then just pull it out of the freezer at the last minute! It’s a great way to save time on your busy weeknights.

To make this recipe, layer half of the frozen ravioli in a baking dish with a layer of spaghetti sauce and cheese. Repeat the layers until you have the entire pan layered with the ravioli, sauce and cheese.

This dish makes a great vegetarian dinner, but you can also switch it up for a meaty version by adding browned Italian sausage or ground beef to the mixture.

I’m also a huge fan of using leftover pasta in this recipe, so feel free to use whatever you have on hand! If you do, be sure to adjust the cooking times.

If you are making this dish ahead of time, be sure to cover the top with tin foil so the pasta doesn’t dry out or squish during baking. Once it’s ready to serve, remove the foil and broil for a few minutes to get that cheesy browning.

Alternatively, you can store the baked pasta in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. You can even assemble the dish, cover with foil and thaw in the fridge overnight prior to baking.

Another great idea is to assemble the baked pasta as instructed, cover with foil and freeze for up to 3 months. Then simply thaw in the refrigerator during the day or overnight before baking.

Fried Ravioli

If you’re looking for a great appetizer to serve at a party or as an after dinner snack, fried ravioli is a wonderful choice. These bites are crispy on the outside with a warm and cheesy center, which makes them perfect for dipping in your favorite marinara sauce.

They are also easy to make ahead and reheat nicely for parties so they’re a great option to have on hand. They are best served fresh, but you can prepare them a day in advance and keep them cool until ready to serve.

You can fry these toasted ravioli in an air fryer or just use regular cooking oil. You can also bake them in the oven, but you’ll want to adjust your baking time based on how crispy you prefer them.

First, place a large pot or dutch oven on the stove and pour enough oil to cover the bottom by about 2 inches. Heat the oil until it registers 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. Add a couple of bread crumbs to the oil and begin frying the ravioli in batches, turning them often until they’re golden brown.

Once they’re browned, remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined dish to drain. Repeat with the rest of the ravioli.

When you’re done, garnish the fried pasta with a bit of grated Parmesan cheese and a pinch of fresh Italian parsley. You can also dunk the pasta in your favorite marinara sauce for an extra kick of flavor.

This is a quick and easy pan fried ravioli recipe that takes just minutes to whip up! You can use fresh or frozen ravioli for this tasty appetizer, and it’s perfect for any occasion.

For a healthier version of this classic Italian dish, try making this recipe with vegetable oil instead of traditional cooking oil. It’s just as tasty and is a good way to reduce your overall calorie intake while still enjoying the taste of fried food!

These fried ravioli recipes are a fun and easy way to get the family or guests involved in the cooking process. They’re also a great make-ahead option for parties and can be frozen up to 3 months.

Ravioli with Meat Sauce

If you want to make your favorite pasta with a meat sauce, buitoni ravioli is a great option. These stuffed pastas come in a variety of flavors and are easy to prepare, making them perfect for weeknight dinners or family meals.

These recipes will help you create a flavorful meat sauce that will impress your guests. You can serve this sauce over any of your favorite pastas, or use it as a base for lasagna.

This Cheesy Beef Ravioli recipe is easy to make and perfect for a busy weeknight meal. You’ll love the tender meat, pasta, and tomato sauce that’s all layered in one dish. It’s the kind of comfort food that will keep you coming back for more!

For this delicious recipe, you’ll need ground beef, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning, and a can of crushed tomatoes. Once you’ve browned the meat, add the vegetables and simmer until everything is tender.

Then, add the cooked ravioli and stir to combine. Top with cheese, and bake until the cheese is melted and crispy on top!

You can also add a handful of roasted vegetables like broccoli, peppers or tomatoes for an even heartier dish. Served with a salad or side, this cheese ravioli casserole is sure to become your go-to pasta recipe!

If you don’t have the time to boil your pasta, this dish can be made with frozen ravioli. However, you’ll want to plan on cooking the ravioli for a bit longer so that they’re completely cooked through.

Alternatively, you can make this casserole with fresh ravioli from the store. Just be sure to follow the recipe instructions and add about 10-20 minutes of extra cooking time.

Then, top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, and broil until the cheese is melted and bubbling. This is a fantastic dish that will become your go-to weeknight dinner! It’s delicious on its own, but you can also add a side of crusty Italian bread or a salad for even more flavor.

Ravioli with Pesto

Ravioli with pesto is a classic Italian dish that combines perfectly caramelized roasted veggies with tender cheese-filled ravioli and loads of fresh basil pesto. This is a quick and easy recipe that will be your new go-to dinner option for those nights when you are short on time, but still want to feed the family something delicious!

The key to making this meal a success is using the right ingredients. This pesto sauce blends fragrant basil, savory garlic, pine nuts, walnuts, aged Parmesan and Romano cheeses and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil for a vibrant pasta dish the whole family will enjoy!

This pesto sauce is also a great option to use as a dip for crostini or grilled vegetables. You can even make a creamy hummus by mixing in a little bit of this pesto sauce with chickpeas!

To make this pesto, you will need a blender and some patience. Start by adding the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and pine nuts to your blender. Then, continue by adding the cheese, salt and pepper.

After you have mixed all the ingredients, you will need to reserve about a cup of your starchy cooking water. This will help emulsify your sauce and create the creamiest texture possible.

Once your sauce is ready, toss the prepared tortellini in the pesto and a few tablespoons of the reserved pasta cooking water. Stir this mixture vigorously for a minute or so until the pesto sauce coats the tortellini.
