- Preheat oven to 425°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil.

Let stand 5 minutes to cool before serving.
- Meanwhile, to make dressing, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, and black pepper in large bowl. When ravioli are done, add arugula, tomatoes, and bell pepper to dressing and toss to coat.
