I loved this recipe. I made it as an appetizer and didn't even want to eat my dinner! I could have eaten the whole batch. I did make it easier on myself by buying bottled spaghetti sauce. I bought spicy tomato sauce and freshened it up with some herbs. One of the better recipes I've made it in a long time. Can't wait to make it again for a party! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved it - Kids loved it to. I made all the recipes from the wine and dine episode for a date night- It was all fabulous! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this recipe using tortellini - it's a great guest-friendly appetizer! In fact, I've made all the recipes from this wine & dine episode for a date night, and it was divine! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I lived just outside St. Louis, MO for 22 years before moving to Florida and of all the things I miss toasted ravioli is at the top. I was amazed by how quick and simple this was, but it still tasted just like the toasted ravioli I used to get at home all the time. I'm not a big fan of cheese ravioli so I used beef and the were amazing. Will definitely be doing these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this as an appetizer for a New Years party and there wasn't one ravioli left! The sauce is amazing too and we have used it on other recipes like stuffed chicken! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used three cheese ravioli, included some but not all of th parmesan in the breadcrumb mixture and sprinkled the rest over top when done. This was so so good! I will definitely make this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I grew up in St. Louis and love toasted ravioli! My husband and I moved to Chicago last summer and have craved this so many times and of course can't ever find in the stores! SO i saw this on your show yesterday and I am pregnant and have been craving toasted ravioli! I went to the store and bought everything I need and made it with dinner last night! It was so good my husband and I loved it! It was so easy and even better than the stuff I could of bought at the grocery stores in St. Louis! I will be making this lots! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Okay, first of all, Beth from Sterling Heights, Michigan, is way off about toasted ravioli. I only lived in St. Louis for three years, but even I know that toasted ravioli is ravioli that is breaded and fried. I have no idea what she is talking about. Now, to review the recipe: This recipe is awesome! Super easy and tastes just like the toasted ravioli I had when I lived in St. Louis. You've got to try it if you haven't already! The only things I changed were: I couldn't find the large ravioli at the store I was in, so I used small. Works just fine; it's more time consuming since you have to make a lot more. Even though the recipe calls for spinach and cheese filling, you can use any kind you want. Also, I didn't have fresh parsley for the breading so I used a smaller amount of dried. Using the smaller raviolis would make it great for a party. I have to admit, sometimes I find Rachael Ray to be kind of annoying, but man, the girl comes up with great recipes! Thanks Rachael! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've lived in St Louis over 40 yrs. I've NEVER had or SEEN toasted ravioli without the ravioli (just meat). I think that would be called deep fried meatballs? Believe this toasted ravioli is very close to the St Louis style (original). My sons don't live in St Louis anymore and use this method or w/egg dip & bread crumbs to make their childhood favorite dish. ABSOLUTELY have to try these---I had to haul 40 lbs. of the original breaded ravioli (frozen) to deep fry for a wedding re-ception in Nicaragua for one of my sons.

I used this recipe mostly for the breading. I had some frozen ravioli at my house already, but was really craving the toasted version. I thawed the raviolis in the microwave first, then breaded them using Rachel's recipe. They came out tasting exactly like the Toasted Raviolis you can get all over St. Louis. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It tasted good and was very easy to make, but, the grated parmesan doesnt stick very well to the ravioli, or at all, so i would recommend blending it in a food processor to get it more fine to mix in with the bread crumbs. But it tasted pretty good and was easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Will make this often! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very quick and easy. The ravioli were nice and crisp! My very picky boyfriend loved them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My boyfriend and I love the toasted ravioli appetizers at restaurants, and who knew it was so easy to duplicate at home. More than the precise recipe, you really learn a technique with this one. You can do it with whatever's on hand. The other day I just threw an egg, regular breadcrumbs, dried parsley, dried oregano, and dried basil together. I used the meat ravioli for a heartier appetizer. They brown very quickly so be very attentive! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The concept sounded great but...I had to use four cheese ravioli because the grocery store didn't have the spinach and cheese ones. And for some reason the filling inside didn't like...soften up right. Perhaps the problem in this was the ravioli I chose to use. Not something I need to make again, and more work than it's worth when you include the amount of dishes you have to do afterwards. Easier to just boil ravioli - they taste just as good that way. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made them as a snack while my girlfriend and I watched the super bowl and we both loved them. Quick, easy, super tasty!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are the best appetizers! I used small low fat 4 cheese ravioli. I bought a sundried tomato pesto sauce and my guests loved it. I'll make these again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were amazin'. Added about a tablespoon of garlic powder for flavor and they turned out wonderful. Dipped in Prego marinara instead of making the sauce (dont like peppers). My boyfriend gobbled them all up and wanted seconds. Served with Parmesan Chicken-just dipped in the egg wash and used the same breading for the ravioli. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The first time I tasted this, I was surprised how good it tasted. I loved it!!! It's so quick and easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sauce is absolutely amazing... but I love anything with roasted red peppers. I never seem to find large ravioli in the grocery store, and it would probably be better if I could. The small ravioli ends up too toasty and the filling inside dries out when you cook it. For Rachael, it's pretty good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved the idea of it but I don't fry anything. So i followed the instructions and then baked it at 400, on a lightly sprayed baking sheet, for about 10 minutes until toasty and brown. Yum!!! They were so good! and no frying smell in the house or the extra calories item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this reciepe i made it with frozen cheese ravioli, and i always change up the dipping sauces like store bought vodka sauce, tomato basil, and my favorite pesto. they all taste so good with the toasted ravioli. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was absolutely fantastic! Ever since I saw Rachael cook it on TV, my mouth was watering for it! Contrary to many reviews it was not too greasy... just don't use too much EVOO. I served them with plain marinara sauce and they were very yummy! Thanks, Rachael!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
A new party starter in my house for sure. Have served it several times in the past few weeks and everyone wanted the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I used smaller raviolis and panko bread crumbs. With larger raviolis and italian breadcrumbs this recipe could be very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have not made this yet, but sounds interesting enough. Im orginally from St.Louis, MO, lived there all my life up until a couple years ago. Toasted Ravioli orginated in St. Louis in a neighboorhood known as "The Hill" which is an authentic Itallian community. Toasted ravioli isnt really even in a pasta shell, its actually just the meat inside a breading that is deep fried. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this for my niece one night while on babysitting duty and she loved it...and still asks for it everytime I watch her.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was a great recipe. however i did add 2 cloves of minced garlic and a little bit of chives to the breadcrumb mixture. i am allergic to red pepper flakes so i omitted them, and i used a canned marinara that spruced up myself. the garlic really helps. its very yummy and my husband loved it! i read a couple of reviews that said it was bland, and if you add what i have listed i promise it is anything but! happy eating! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Not a lot of taste... could have been more spicy/flavorful. Also too fried for us, even though we used a minimal amount of olive oil when "toasting." item not reviewed by moderator and published

I tried this as a quick starter to keep my fiance satisfied while I was making dinner....the only problem was that he wanted more before dinner was ready! I think I'll have to make two batches if I have company over. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very easy to make. Just bought 4-cheese ravioli from grocery store (fresh, not frozen) and then followed the directions. Very fast once put in the pan. We just used some marinara sauce for dipping instead of making the other sauce...I think that cuts some time off of the recipe. Great..will make again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was delicious and so easy and quick to make! The only problem I found was that the measurements for the ravioli coating produced a bit of waste...I ended up throwing a bunch of it out because after dipping the ravioli in the egg and dipping that into the coating you can't keep the extra since there is raw egg in it. With that said, following the exact recipe makes a ton of raviolis! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is now one of our favorite starters! The roasted red peppers add a wonderful flavor to the dipping sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great appetizer, with a zing. Loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cooked this using portabella mushroom ravioli's and didn't like it at all. The coating was not tasty enough, very bland. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was pretty good, but not really worth the effort. Also, the preparations took a good 30 minutes; the dipping sauce is way too runny unless you reduce it for a while. I might do these for a party sometime, as they are a good finger food, and can be made ahead of time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a rather tasty dish. I especially like the sauce that you used for dipping the Ravioli. I would definitely make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

i loved this recipe and i don't even really like ravioli! i=my husband loves them so i figured i'd give this a shot and it was soooo good. the texture is great, just the right amount of crunch as opposed to soggy water-soaked noodles. and the saw was so easy and really delicious. i will definitely make this again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love toasted ravioli, and order it whenever I can find it. I was so psyched to see Rachael prepare it on her show. I thought the breading was a tad on the bland side. I would probably add some red pepper flake next time. I made a red sauce for the dish where as Rachael made a pepper sauce so that could have something to do with it. Overall, it was a tasty treat!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The ravioli were so good. The only thing is the recipy doesn't mention that if you use store bought ravioli you may need to cook them a littel before you bread them. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I watched Rachel do the whole dinner for dinner for two episode. I liked the idea of toasted ravioli because I tend to order them at the Olive Garden. The recipe was simple, it was the same way I bread talapia except this time, I added parsley in the bread mix. The tomato sauce was too much work for me so I just used ragu spaghetti sauce which worked fine. My husband said it was the best dinner of the year. He loved it and so did I. I would have done the entire dinner she had but I worked with what I had already. And my 5 year old looked at it funny and ate half of a ravioli, guess it wasn't the same as Chef Boyardee. item not reviewed by moderator and published
