Top Tips For Making Spinach Ravioli
  • You can use any variety of spinach and cheese ravioli that you wish. Try to stick with around 16 oz to get four servings. 
  • Be sure to roast the tomatoes. It gives them a delicious flavor that pairs very nicely with the ravioli and makes this dish taste homemade.
  • Be sure to follow the directions on the package of ravioli you are using. Different brands will have slightly different cooking instructions. 
  • You want to cook the ravioli to be slightly al dente (I typically take it out 30 seconds-1 minute before the indicated cooking time is up). It’s very important not to overcook the ravioli or it will become mushy and maybe even a little bit slimy. 
  • For more tomato flavor, try adding 1-2 tbsp of tomato paste to the roasted tomatoes, along with 2-4 tbsp of hot pasta water and a pinch of salt.
