As I scrolled through the countless Pinterest pictures once again I spotted baked ravioli and a positively stunning photo to go with it. I was hooked, so I pinned it instantly then clicked in and browsed through the recipe to actually see what was going on. As I skimmed through the method, the words  “deep fat fry” stood out like a very sore thumb and I nearly changed my mind about the marvelousness of this recipe.

But I decided to change the recipe instead to make it healthy and not such a shock to my heart! So I swapped the deep fat frying for par boiling and tossing in a tiny bit of olive oil, much better. This is a fun way to change up your fresh pasta and gives it a gorgeous crunch that really add texture to the dish. These would be great served as finger food with a fresh tomato sauce or good quality pesto and some tooth picks to pick them up.

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and add the ravioli, cook for 2 1/2 mins.
  • Drain and return to the pot, drizzle with the olive oil and spread out on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Season to taste with salt and pepper and sprinkle evenly with oregano.
  • Bake in the oven for 8-10mins or until the ravioli are just turning golden.
  • Heat up the tomato sauce if not already hot and serve alongside the crispy ravioli, enjoy.
