    Got a question,,

    so, do you remember eating ravioli out of a can when you were a kid,, or maybe even a bigger kid??
    most people loved it.. the sauce left something to be desired though..

    lately, for some odd reason, I have been craving some good Ravioli.. sadly, you cant get that around my neck of the woods.. you can buy frozen Ravioli and maybe make your own sauce but the frozen ravioli is almost always cheese.. (Tortellini too)

    my wild and crazy idea.. I'm gonna cook a pot of spaghetti sauce like I normally would but instead of pouring it over spaghetti.. Im gonna buy a large can of ravioli and gently rinse the sauce off with cold water and place the "cleaned" ravioli's in the home made sauce,,

    Now I realize the meat inside this raviolli is most likely mystery meat.. but if I recall, its not that bad,, kinda tolerable..

    am I on to something, or does this just sound gross..

    I took a ravioli making class a few years ago. Well worth the price of admission.

    If you can't make your own this stuff will work in a pinch:

    I've thought about making some brie stuffed ravioli, and making some sort of a fruit glaze or something (blueberry, maybe?).

    Like a dessert ravioli.

    I know you people consider me the epitome of sophistication but, when I was a kid, I used to LOVE canned ravioli, peanut butter and crackers and sweet pickles.

    I can testify. It's great if you are in a hurry. I confess I have not attempted this dish from scratch YET. I probably will, though. :D

    I have a large mug at work for soup and stuff but I found it easier to just place the hot can of soup in it and eat directly out of the can. Easy clean up. Maybe I should throw in a can of Ravioli or Spaghetti-O's next week. I am sure people think I am weird already but I don't care.

    BTW, I use a hot logic mini to heat my lunch. Fantastic invention for work/school lunches.

    Buy this or something like it in the refrigerated cheese section at Publix. Then buy some stewed canned tomatoes and you can build your sauce from there.

    This will not be as good as actually making the ravioli from scratch or using fresh tomatoes, but it will be really good. You can look online for a sauce recipe.

    Make your own sauce using the canned stewed tomatoes. It will make all the difference.

    Making your own ravioli from scratch is pretty simple OP. Also gives you the option to create whatever filling you'd like. And homemade sauce is always better.

    I'm not really experienced in making dough.. and it seems really labor intensive.. I'm sure it would be better,, maybe I should try..
    and I agree about homemade sauce.. I have a tried and true version that I use.

    To make a kickass pierogie there is one main thing you need and it has nothing to do with a recipe or any ingredients......you 100% must be Polish.


    Its in our DNA and has been passed down generation to generation. I absolutely refuse to eat pierogies at restaurants unless its a Polish restaurant.

    Best pierogies outside of Poland are sold at a secret spot in Avondale. Think of the soup nazi in The Jerry Seinfeld Show. If the chef finds out you spilled the stuffing, you'll find yourself getting kicked out whilst yelling and cussing.

    Look around and you can find some good frozen beef ravioli.
    I use it to make a layered dish(like lasagna)....use your favorite sauce and mozz cheese.

    You can get meat frozen ravioli. I get a package of both meat and cheese frozen ravioli.

    Spray casserole dish with Pam.
    Line the bottom with both kinds of ravioli, alternating. Then spoon on some spaghetti sauce covering the ravioli. Then sprinkle on mozzarella cheese. You can also throw on some Romano or Parmesan too. I usually just do mozzarella and Parmesan.

    Then another layer of ravioli, and repeat.

    Cover w/aluminum foil, bake 350 for 45 minutes. Take off foil, bake another 10-15 minutes until cheese on top is fully melted.

    Oddly enough, I've had some really good ravioli from the deli section at Costco. Not sure it's as good as what @The_Goose posted, but it really was pretty damn good.
    If they don't have any Italian near you, there are some decent restaurants I found in Chicago last month that will flash freeze it and overnight it to you...

    Or just stew your own tomatoes. If it comes from a can, it ain’t really homemade.
