Ravioli Bites

This is a wonderful appetizer to take to a holiday gathering! A nice change from the traditional chips and dips!

1 cup fine soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 t garlic salt
1 t dried leaf oregano
16 ounces cheese-filled ravioli, cooked and drained
nonstick cooking spray
1 cup prepared spaghetti sauce, warmed

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Coat 2 baking sheets with nonstick spray or use nonstick mats or foil to line baking sheets. In a pie plate combine the bread crumbs, cheese, garlic salt, and oregano. Roll each hot ravioli in the crumb mixture until coated. Place the ravioli, 1-inch apart, on baking sheets. Spray lightly with the nonstick spray. Bake 1 sheet of the ravioli until lightly browned, about 5 minutes, then bake the second sheet. Serve with the spaghetti sauce for dipping.

TIP OF THE DAY: Frozen ravioli works great for this recipe.
