👉Mock Ravioli


Mock Ravioli


  • 1 package of meatballs (prepared according to package instructions)
  • 1 package sliced provolone cheese
  • Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 1 jar Rao’s marinara sauce (for dipping)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking pan with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  2. Prepare Cheese Slices: Cut the provolone cheese rounds into 4 triangles each.
  3. Layer Cheese and Meatballs: Arrange the cheese triangles on the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle Italian seasoning (if using) on each cheese slice. Place a meatball on top of each cheese slice and then cover each meatball with another cheese triangle.
  4. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve: Serve the mock ravioli hot with Rao’s marinara sauce for dipping.

Best Tips to Make:

  1. Choose Quality Ingredients: Opt for high-quality meatballs and provolone cheese for the best flavor and texture in your mock ravioli.
  2. Customize with Seasonings: Experiment with different seasonings to enhance the flavor of your mock ravioli. Italian seasoning, garlic powder, or red pepper flakes can add a delicious kick.
  3. Ensure Proper Melting: To ensure that the cheese melts evenly, make sure the meatballs are warm before assembling the mock ravioli. You can reheat them in the microwave or oven if necessary.
  4. Don’t Overcook: Keep an eye on the mock ravioli while baking to prevent the cheese from burning. Once the cheese is melted and bubbly, it’s ready to be served.
  5. Serve with Dipping Sauce: Rao’s marinara sauce pairs perfectly with the mock ravioli, but feel free to use any low-carb marinara sauce or dipping sauce of your choice.
