Valentine’s Day is coming up!
Do you have any big plans for dinner yet? I posted a romantic pasta recipe a few weeks ago, but today I thought I’d share something more kid-friendly because kids love Valentine’s Day too.
I breaded and fried heart-shaped ravioli (from Olivieri) and served them with warm Marinara sauce. These crisp bites are cheesy and delicious, and they reheat well too. Imagine a bowl of these sitting on the table at a casual dinner or a kid’s party – cute right? The kids can even help out by dunking the ravioli pieces in the buttermilk, and sprinkling the cheese on top at the end. Getting them involved not only makes them feel accomplished, but they are more inclined to eat food that they’ve helped prepare (true story!).
I should probably mention that while I don’t actually have any children of my own, I do have several kids in my life including a cousin who is born on Valentine’s Day. (Happy 10th Birthday Keean!)
Ok, on the recipe! Check out my video below for step-by-step visual instructions or print the recipe lower down on the page.
This recipe is adapted from a recipe by Giada De Laurentiis. I actually met Giada a few days ago, and there will be more Giada content on the blog this week, so keep an eye out for that.
Where to buy the heart-shaped pasta:
I found the ravioli hearts at Metro grocery store.
