This was a delicious dinner and so easy! I added mozzarella and Parmesan of course because I LOVE cheese so much! I used frozen ravioli, it was amazing and a definite make again! Thanks for a great recipe!
I'm so glad you enjoyed and you can never have too much cheese!
The recipe doesn’t say to cook the ravioli before adding it to the sauce. So I’m wondering if I add the ravioli to the sauce uncooked. I’m planning to make this meal for dinner tonight! Thanks! Teresa
Yes cook the ravioli first. I hope you enjoy it.
