    These crispy and crunchy ravioli are so moreish and perfect for an easy-but-unique party nibble. Serve with warm pasta sauce for dipping, or any other variety of sauce you desire. The best part is that they're so crispy, yet baked instead of fried!

    Cheese ravioli topped with green, red and yellow peppers. A nice change from the usual tomato pasta sauces. I cooked this one day for myself, and my family ate all of it before I had a chance. It's that good.
