BETTENDORF – Pasta doesn't need to be bland or covered in sauces. But that's all some cooks may think when they want to use ravioli in a recipe.
"When you think of pasta, you think of thin, wet, soggy noodles," says Scott Community College's director of Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management center Chef Brad Scott.
"Today. we're going to do pasta with a crunch."

4. Add 1 tbsp garlic

Start making your side dish.
