National Ravioli Day - March 20



National Ravioli Day is celebrated each year on March 20th.  As one of the food holidays, it is very popular with all pasta lovers.

Ravioli are a traditional type of Italian filled pasta, made up of a filling, sealed between two layers of thin egg pasta dough, and are usually served in either a broth or with a pasta sauce.    The fillings can vary, per recipe, and may include meat, cheese, vegetables or seafood.  While searching for ravioli recipes, you will also find ones that are available for dessert ravioli.

Ravioli can be homemade or may be purchased fresh or frozen in grocery stores.  In the United States, Chef Boyardee popularized the canned ravioli.  This ravioli is filled with either beef or processed cheese and served in a tomato, tomato-meat, or tomato-cheese sauce.  St. Louis, Missouri is where the toasted ravioli got its start.

As a popular appetizer, ravioli is served breaded and deep fried.
