FOOD FUN: Pizza Ravioli

We had fun eating the “pizza ravioli” from Giovanni Rana restaurant and pasticceria in New York City’s Chelsea Market.

Jumbo cheese ravioli are deep fried and topped with a fresh tomato and basil sauce, then garnished with more of the fresh basil. You’ve got a crisp “crust,” cheese, tomato sauce and basil: a fun first course.

You can buy jumbo ravioli at shops that specialize in fresh pasta.

But that’s not the end of the fun.
