Insane to bake homemade ravioli?

LaureltQ | Dec 16, 201302:18 PM

My family's tradition is to do Cioppino for Christmas each year. I am hosting Christmas dinner for my Italian in laws and will be making Cioppino, sourdough, and a caesar salad. My mother in law (picky) doesn't like Cioppino(more for us!). I have verified that she does in fact like ravioli, and I am very comfortable with making them, but I know that homemade ravioli tend to be more delicate than storebought, and I do not want to be boiling them off for her right before we sit down to eat. Would it be insane to boil them ahead of time, shock them in cool water, then layer in a casserole with a tomato sauce, then pop it in the oven to warm through before dinner? Would it be totally crazy to even bother with making them from scratch at that point?
