Dream Dinners: Toasted Ravioli with Seasoned Marinara Dipping Sauce

This year we did not go home for the holidays, however, Dream Dinners brought a little bit of hometown to our holidays.  As soon as I saw that Toasted Ravioli was going to be included in the Sides and Sweets freezer for December, I knew that I had to make sure to get some.  Toasted ravioli is a St. Louis favorite and I was excited to try Dream Dinners’ twist on a favorite item of ours.  Most often, toasted ravioli is made with beef, but this variety had a gooey mozzerella, white cheese blend inside.  We saved them for Christmas Day, deciding that they would be a great appetizer to serve with spaghetti.  I followed the instructions and heated up the oven to 375 and baked them for 25 minutes.  While the t-ravs were cooking, I warmed up the marinara dipping sauce.  I pulled them out and decided that they weren’t quite crispy enough, so I cooked them another few minutes.  At this point, the cheese was beginning to ooze out a bit, so I decided they would be done.  While they weren’t quite like the ones we were accustomed to, these toasted raviolis were delicious.  They almost reminded me of a hybrid mozzerella stick and toasted ravioli mix.  We ate them up, barely saving room for spaghetti.  If I am able to get these again in the future, I would probably cook them at a higher temperature to crisp them up a little more and I would also make sure to buy more than 1 package!
