Expert Tips

Certainly any flavor of refrigerated filled ravioli can be used. Try mushroom or chicken for a change of pace!

If you cut up the eggplant ahead of time, brush it with a little lemon juice or dip it in 1 quart cold water mixed with 3 tablespoons lemon juice to prevent the flesh from discoloring.
