To celebrate National Ravioli Day on March 20 (that’s today!), America’s favorite pasta brand, Three Bridges [https://threebridges.com] — famous for its healthy and filling ravioli in the refrigerated aisle — has created a boiling hot national survey of the ravioli-loving habits of all Americans.
Yes, America, it’s ravioli time.
According to the survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by National Today [https://nationaltoday.com/national-ravioli-day], 87% of Americans like or love this hot ‘square’ meal and 8% actually say ravioli is their all-time favorite food.
