Attention all pasta lovers! It's time to mark your calendars because March 20th is National Ravioli Day, a day dedicated to celebrating this fun-filled and versatile pasta. This Italian-filled pasta is a favorite of foodies and pasta enthusiasts alike. So why not indulge in a plate of your favorite ravioli to honor this special day?


For those who may not be familiar with ravioli, it is a dish that consists of two layers of thin egg pasta dough filled with a variety of ingredients. Imagine a small meatball tucked snug inside two cozy layers of delicious dough. That's what ravioli is all about. The filling options are endless, from classic cheese and meat to a variety of vegetables and seasonings.

  • Once cooked, ravioli is usually served in either a savory broth or with a rich and flavorful pasta sauce. What's great about ravioli is that it's not only a main course but can also be served as a side dish or appetizer.
  • Some of the most popular recipes even bake or deep fry the ravioli, giving it an irresistible crispy texture. And if you're feeling adventurous, you can even turn this savory dish into a dessert by adding chocolate to the pasta or cream cheese stuffing with a drizzle of caramel sauce! But what about toasted ravioli?
  • Where does this delicious creation come from? Well, we turn to St. Louis, Missouri, for the answer. In the 1940s at Oldani’s, a cook accidentally dropped a ravioli into the fryer.
  • And what a delicious accident this ravioli became! The crisp ravioli earned a place on the menu. Or so the story goes. If so, we think it is a tasty one.

So, what are you waiting for? Gather your favorite filling and sauce, and whip up a plate of ravioli to celebrate National Ravioli Day.
