Tasty Tuesday: Toasted Ravioli

Fried ravioli is a favorite in our house, but let's face it, fried anything isn't very healthy. So after some trial & error, I finally perfected my recipe for a toasted version that delivers the same great taste. Actually, my oldest (the biggest ravioli critic of them all), told me that she prefers them toasted like this instead of fried now. And that says a lot!

•desired flavor of ravioli
•fresh bread crumbs
•Parmesan cheese
•garlic salt
•black pepper
•parsley flakes
•splash of milk
•cooking spray
•marinara for dipping, optional

- Place ravioli in colander & run under cold water to thaw if frozen. 
- In a shallow dish, combine equal parts (or close to it) of fresh bread crumbs & Parmesan cheese. Add desired amount of garlic salt, black pepper & parsley flakes.
- In a separate shallow dish, combine egg with a splash of milk & water to make a thinned out egg wash. 
- Preheat oven to 375ยบ & line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
- Thoroughly coat raviolis in egg wash, followed by the breadcrumb mixture & place on the baking sheet.
- Before placing in the oven, spray the raviolis with cooking spray. 
- Bake 2-30 min. until toasted, flipping halfway & spraying again with cooking spray.
- Serve with marinara for dipping, if desired.
