Cheese Ravioli with Three Pepper Topping
Cheese ravioli topped with green, red, and yellow peppers. "I absolutely love this recipe," says VMCENROE. "I was so bored with the same old tomato sauce or alfredo sauce. This is exactly what I was looking for. Although it tastes great as is, I will also try it with sauteed garlic next time. If you like your vegetables crisp then I recommend heating the vegetables just long enough to tenderize the garlic because they will continue to cook when the broth is added."
Ravioli with Cherry Tomatoes and Cheese
Recipe reviewer Catherine Mandell, "You can use cheese or meat ravioli in this recipe. Sausage ravioli are particularly good!" CHANDRA3 says, "My family loved this recipe. We used meat ravioli and cheese ravioli and it worked well with both. This is a very versatile recipe. We are looking forward to using the cherry tomato and cheese mixture with many other dinners and salads."
