TIP OF THE DAY: Make Grilled Ravioli

Have you ever grilled pasta? Pop some fresh or thawed ravioli onto the grill and become a believer.

We got such good response to our recent Pasta Primavera recipe that we’re sharing another take on it—grilled ravioli with grilled vegetables.

Pasta Prima, a specialist in handcrafted ravioli, developed this recipe using its Pasta Prima Frozen Spinach and Mozzarella Ravioli. You can try other ravioli flavors, as well. Consider a ravioli “mixed grill.”

Prep time: 20 minutes. Cook time: 4 minutes. Yields: 4 servings.



  • 24 fresh or thawed frozen spinach ravioli
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 2 yellow squash, sliced
  • 2 large red bell peppers, sliced
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Skewers
  • Optional garnishes: fresh basil leaf, grated
    Parmesan or crumbled goat cheese
  • Marinade

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 8 leaves fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 pinches each rosemary and oregano (fresh if possible)
  • Splash of red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

    1. MARINATE. Slice the vegetables into half inch pieces, large enough to fit on a skewer. Put the vegetables into a sealed plastic bag with the marinade ingredients, shake, and marinate in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours or overnight.

    2. THAW. While the vegetables are marinating, thaw the ravioli and soak the skewers so they will not burn. For quick thawing of frozen ravioli, soak in tepid water for about half an hour, or defrost in the refrigerator for 6 hours. Soak skewers for several hours.

    3. PREHEAT. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Let the marinade drain off the vegetables in a colander, to prevent flare-ups.

    4. GRILL. Slide vegetables onto skewers. Place ravioli on the grill. Cook vegetables apart from the ravioli on the other side of the grill. Both will take about 2 ½-3 minutes to cook. Keep the grill lid open.

    5. SERVE. Top with the optional garnish(es).
