My four year old loved helping me make these.  They are so simple and only a few steps to prepare these cute, little bites. It didn’t take long for her and I to finish these together and they were gobbled down in less than 5 minutes. They are SO good and easy to make. I love that they are so simple and that I can have my daughter helping me in the kitchen creating new recipes together. Do you see that cute little hand in the last picture?! That is my little four year old assistant. She is the best helper and happy to be apart of it all! I love having her by my side in the kitchen. We all loved this recipe and had to double it this last time we made it!

No matter how you enjoy them, they are addicting to say the least! Once you start dipping and eating they will soon be gone and you will be craving more!

Can You Use Frozen Ravioli?

Yes, you can! Add an extra 4 to 5 minutes on your baking time to make sure they are cooked through. I prefer refrigerated ravioli to bake with but I know local grocery stores do have frozen ravioli in the freezer section. You can also thaw the frozen ravioli prior to baking them for a better cooking experience.

Can You Freeze Baked Ravioli?

Yes! Layer the already baked ravioli on a cookie sheet in a single layer and freeze. Once frozen transfer to a freezer bag or plastic Tupperware and place back in the freezer. These will last about 7 to 10 days in your freezer.

To reheat the Baked Ravioli follow step number 3 in the instructions but preheating the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and baking for 10 to 12 minutes or until they are crispy, golden brown on the outside.

Can You Pan Fry Ravioli Bites?

Yes, you can pan fry them if you prefer. Add 1 Tablespoon oil to cover the bottom of your pan or pot. Once heated to approximately 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Fry each breaded ravioli for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until they are crispy, golden brown on the outside.

What Type of Dipping Sauce is Best for Baked Ravioli?

I love a good Marinara sauce but you are welcome to try my Alfredo sauce or a pizza sauce works well too. I recommend warming it up on the stove top or microwave either sauce to have a warm, melt in your mouth deliciousness.

What is Marinara Sauce?

Marinara sauce is a tomato sauce, usually made with tomatoes, garlic, herbs, and onions. Its many variations can include the addition of capers, olives, spices, and a dash of wine. This sauce is widely used in Italian-American cuisine.

What Does Marinara Sauce Taste Like?

Real marinara sauce has the taste and juice of fresh tomato, but also a velvety texture and the rich bite of olive oil: even the best jarred sauces can’t pull that off. … The trick to perfect marinara is to cook it at a vigorous simmer, so that the tomatoes are cooked through just as the sauce becomes thick.
