I was given a kitchen themed bridal shower and one of the best recipes I got was from my friend, Karen, called “Homemade Ravioli’s for Christmas”. It is amazing because it makes A LOT of ravioli…like 100+ little pillows of delight. These ravioli’s can be frozen and kept for whenever you need them during the week.
