Sometimes we want a quick dinner that doesn't taste like it came right out of the ice box. One option for a scrumptious yet low-fuss dinner is lobster ravioli. The trick is to find a brand that doesn't feel gummy after the refrigerator- or freezer-to-stovetop preparation. We sampled five brands of lobster ravioli from local grocery stores to see how they held up. We boiled all on the stove, according to package directions. Afterward, our judges said they likely will continue to keep lobster ravioli on their short list of full-flavored dinner options.
