Tastemaker: Buitoni Riserva

I am a member of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program. A few weeks ago we had a chance to try the Buitoni Riserva Spicy Beef and Sausage Ravioli. I could not let the chance slip by. I was thrilled. (SHIP IT ASAP! !)
In my opinion, it was by far one of the best ravioli I have ever eaten. It was so flavorful, bold and not too spicy. My two and four year old loved them. I also picked up a package of the Cheese Buitoni Riserva and they were extremely tasty too. I was not disappointed.

I fried the Ravioli and served with a homemade pizza sauce. I fried them two ways. One with a planko breading and the other bare. Both were mouthwatering!! :)
