Do Yourself A Favor And Stop Dumping Your Ravioli In A Colander
By Kelly Douglas
Using a colander works great for the majority of pasta types, but ravioli can prove to be a nuisance in a colander, especially if they start breaking apart. There’s an easier way to drain your ravioli while avoiding them breaking apart, and you probably have the item you need in your kitchen.
Unlike pasta types with one layer, ravioli can only take so much before it starts to separate, so instead of using your colander, swap that out for a slotted spoon or spider strainer. These kitchen tools are better equipped to drain ravioli because you don't need to move the pasta around too extensively, which would cause it to break.
Both are small enough that you can take a few pieces of ravioli, drain them easily, and then add them to a pot of sauce or plate them to serve. Yes, it might take slightly more time to drain your ravioli with a strainer than it would if you use a colander, but you'll no longer encounter those broken ravioli pieces that ruin your dinner.
