Manti with Yogurt Sauce

My husband spent sometime in Turkey and loved the ravioli with yogurt sauce. We reinvented it a little and it is one of our favorites. My kids often eat it without the sauce. For special occasions we make fresh ravioli with pork inside and top it with this sauce.

Meat filled ravioli -homemade, frozen or fresh
1 Cup plain yogurt
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon Parsley
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons Melted butter
Boil 8 quarts water. Gently add pasta to boiling water and simmer under reduced heat for 5 minutes or until ravioli rise to the top. Taste pasta for doneness. Mix sauce ingredients together and pour over cooked pasta squares. Serve immediately.

Toasted Ravioli with Sauce

This is one of our favorite family meals, we usually only do it on special occasions because it is fried and we make our ravioli from scratch. You can easily buy frozen ravioli and use it instead.

Cheesy Ravioli and Peas

I used tortellini in this picture instead of ravioli

1 (9 oz.) pkg. cheese ravioli
1 Cup frozen peas
2 Tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 Cup half and half
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes, pureed
1 Tablespoon garlic seasoning or other seasoning
2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated

Cook ravioli in boiling water until tender. The last few minutes add frozen peas and drain. Meanwhile, whisk together half and half, pureed tomatoes, flour and pepper. Stir several minutes until thickens. Toss sauce with ravioli and peas. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.

Ravioli Salad

A variation from ravioli with sauce could be a ravioli salad!

1 lb. cheese ravioli
fresh vegetables diced, such as asparagus, green peas, green beans, halved grape tomatoes, etc.
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Boil your ravioli until tender. Meanwhile chop any fresh vegetables you'd like to add to your salad. If you'd like you can cook chopped carrots, fresh green beans, etc that need softening.

In a serving bowl, add cooked ravioli and vegetables. Toss nuts and drizzle with Parmesan cheese and olive oil. Serve.
