Helpful Tips to make Ravioli and Sausage Skillet :

  • Using fire-roasted tomatoes in place of crushed or plain diced tomatoes gives recipes a depth of flavor that makes you think it cooked all day long.
  • Try substituting 1 pound of your favorite Italian cheeses in place of the cheese blend. I use 8 ounces of mozzarella cheese, 4 ounces provolone and 4 ounces Romano or Asiago.
