Grilled Ravioli Dinner #Blackstone

Jump to Recipe

Ok, some weeknights, you need a total “cheaters” dinner that only needs five ingredients and takes about 20 minutes to pull together. Some days, it’s all you can do to even get dinner to the table without calling in an order or using the drive-thru.  This Grilled Ravioli Dinner fits the bill for sure.

Grilled Ravioli

I strongly suggest you use Olive Garden Italian Dressing for this recipe. It’s about the parmesan cheese that they mix into the dressing. It adds the element of cheese to this five ingredient dinner. You can definitely use your own favorite Italian dressing from a bottle or homemade. This dressing also has enough oil in it to act as the only oil you need to cook this up and prevent sticking. It is important that you coat the ingredients before adding the flattop instead of the other way around, otherwise it will start to stick right away.

Grilled Ravioli

This is another Blackstone recipe and definitely comes out best on a flattop. If you don’t have a flattop, then you can make it on a countertop griddle or frying pan, but you might need to make it in batches. What you really need for success with Blackstone recipes is a good long spatula that allows you to chop, flip and cut as needed. It allows you easily fold and turn the ingredients on the griddle quickly to prevent burning.

Grilled Ravioli

I really like the use of the mushrooms and spinach because you get that nice earthly flavor from the mushrooms mixed with the freshness of the spinach. You might notice that the spinach is only barely cooked. And this is because my family and I really don’t care too much for super wilted spinach – want it to still be bright green and look like leaves. If you like yours cooked down more, you can add it sooner to the mix. The same goes for the mushrooms, if you want them cooked down more, you can add the mushrooms for a few minutes before adding the sausage in.

Grilled Ravioli

The ravioli for this recipe needs to be the kind you get from the refrigerator section of the store – the fresh kind. Using frozen or dried ravioli will not work without some other type of preparation. For this recipe you do not need to precook the ravioli at all before adding it to the griddle. The temperature is hot enough to warm them all the way through. I used just a cheese ravioli, but you could definitely select a different filling flavor like one with veggies or meat included. Just be sure it’s one that is going to work with the flavors of the recipe.

Now Let’s Get Cookin’!

  1. This looks fantastic! I will definitely be pinning this for later! I don’t have a blackstone, but I feel like I could accomplish this on a griddle or cast iron pan maybe??

  2. I may be wrong but I am thinking the ravioli is to be precooked? It doesn’t say but it makes sense but It should be clarified in recipe for those that may just follow directions as I see often in comments. Thanks

    1. Hi! No the ravioli should not be precooked (it will get too mushy). You should use the fresh style of ravioli, not frozen or dried. I hope this clarification is helpful.

  3. That is such a pretty and colourful meal, seems a shame to eat it… but it bet it tastes good! 🙂 Anything with spinach is always tasty! Sim x Hopping over from ShareYourStyle
