Quick Note

Ravioli – use your favorite type of ravioli. I used frozen spinach and cheese but you can use meat ravioli or any kind you like.

Mozzarella – if you like and if you don’t have time you can buy from the store already shredded cheese. I don’t. I like to buy the mozzarella cheese and grate it at home. If you want to learn the secret how to grate cheese at home check the IMPORTANT note below.

Basil Pesto – for this recipe I used the combo of the store bought basil pesto Classico and homemade 5 star cookies recipe.

IMPORTANT:
