We’ve all probably had Chef Boyardee Ravioli at some point or other. It makes a great quick and simple meal for the kids or a fast snack in a hurry for the busy adult or college student.
The answer to the question is YES, as long as you follow the proper steps. There are two basic types of Chef Boyardee Ravioli products on the market, microwavable bowls and the traditional cans of ravioli.
We’ll break down what to do to safely microwave your ravioli so you can enjoy it in minutes.
Microwavable Chef Boyardee Bowls
So, the one thing to note is that even though they are microwave-safe bowls, you can’t pop them straight into the microwave the minute you bring them home.
This is because they have a metal seal on the inside to keep the product fresh. Simply remove the plastic lid, take off the metal seal and discard it, replace the lid and then put it into the microwave for the recommended 45 seconds or until at desired temperature.
Microwaving Canned Chef Boyardee Ravioli
If you want to heat up a traditional metal can of Chef Boyardee Ravioli, you’ll need to take a couple of extra steps.
First, remove the contents of the can into a microwave-safe bowl. Discard the can and place the bowl into the microwave for roughly 45 seconds or until the bowl’s contents are heated thoroughly.
Once your ravioli is heated to the desired temperature, you’re ready to enjoy it.
Use caution when removing items from the microwave!
Please note that just like with the metal seal on the microwave-safe bowls, cans have metal in them and can NOT go into the microwave.
Always check the packaging and remove any metal before attempting to microwave.
