While ravioli is usually served for dinner, I also like to make this quick and different appetizer with it. I tried to do a no-bake version of the recipe, but the result was chewy and unappetizing. So, while I'd like to save the calories of frying, it just isn't the same without that crispiness. Try adding Italian herbs or garlic salt at the finish for a little extra kick.
