The most well known form of ravioli to most of us in the United States comes from a can bearing the likeness of a certain “chef.” You wouldn’t be the first to scour the internet to find what exactly is inside those raviolis. Of the Fifty-nine thousand people that have asked the same question, not one has a clue. No one is positive what that particular chef is bringing to the table, but consensus is that the meat is worse than what is found in a hot dog.
