Cooking is an art and nothing is exact, so feel free to experiment and try things.  When honed, your intuition is your best tool.  Below are some compiled cooking methods we have used or found.

BEEF, CHEESE, SPINACH & CHEESE, AND MUSHROOM RAVIOLI:

Steam - Place ravioli to steam tray.  Pour water into pan and heat until water is boiling then turn down the heat to simmer.  Place steam tray on pan and cover with lid until the bottoms are lightly browned.

Pan Fry - Add oil to pan and heat until oil slides around easily.  Add a layer of ravioli and flip every 1-2 minutes until crispy or both sides start to brown.

Boil - Bring water to a boil, add ravioli to boiling water, reduce heat to low simmer, and stir gently for 4-6 minutes.

Bake - Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place ravioli on parchment lined trays and place in oven for 35-40 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.  Let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving.
