Heart-shaped pie crust filled with mozzarella cheese are sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and bakes until golden brown. Serve with homemade roasted red pepper pesto for a fun Valentine's Day appetizer.
Brush tops of ravioli with egg white. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Puree roasted red pepper, roasted garlic, roasted almonds, parsley, lemon juice, and 3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese in a food processor, keeping puree somewhat chunky. Add oil and puree just to incorporate the oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Pour into a small serving bowl.
Serving: The Mozzarella Cheese Filled Pie Crust Hearts are best served hot immediately after baking. If you make them ahead, then reheat them in a 250 degree oven until warmed through.
Serve with: the Roasted Red Pepper Pesto, which can be served hot or cold, or your favorite marinara sauce.
Puree the Pesto: if you don't have a food processor, you can use a blender to make the pesto. If you have neither, then just chop everything really fine and mix it together by hand.
