Ravioli with Garlic Basil Oil Recipe

Ravioli with Garlic Basil Oil
Preparing a garlic basil oil to go on raviolis is a good alternative to regular spaghetti sauce. You can use whatever brand of ravioli you like for this recipe. I used two different flavors cheese and italian sausage. The garlic basil oil is prepared in the pan gets a lot of flavor from fresh garlic and basil, as well as crushed red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese. I like to serve this recipe with garlic bread. Enjoy.

I would also like to thank All Seasons Uniforms for hooking me up with a sweet chef jacket. I was looking for a jacket with custom embroidery for awhile and they did an excellent job.
