What to do with store-bought "fresh" ravioli?

DanaB | Nov 28, 2006 01:54 AM

Hi all,

I bought some fresh ravioli last night (three cheese -- Bristol Farm's own brand). They looked similar to the Divine pasta kind -- i.e. quite nice.

However, I wasn't crazy about them when I cooked them last night (served with homemade tomato sauce, fresh basil and parmesan). The sauce wasn't the problem -- the raviolis were -- they were kind of rubbery and the cheese filling was grainy.

In the past I've stayed away from store-bought "fresh" pasta for this exact reason, but last night I was really in the mood for ravioli.

Is there anything I can do with the ones that are left in the package, other than boil them and serve them with pasta sauce? I.e., could I fry or bake them? I'd hate to waste them (it was like $7.39 for the package of around 18 raviolis, and I've only eaten 6 of them), so I thought I'd see if any of you knowledgeable hounds out there with experience with this product had any other ideas for tasty things to do with them.


P.S. If you have any suggestions for better options in store-bought ravioli, I'd love to hear them, too!
