Easy Fried Ravioli.  Delicious bite size raviolis are loaded with cheese and quickly fried until crispy crunchy on the outside. There is perfection with every bite.  They’re even more delicious when you serve them with a spicy tomato sauce for dipping.  Fried Ravioli is a fun finger-food appetizer and a crowd-pleaser every time we serve them.

How to Make Easy Fried Ravioli:

Fried ravioli is not time consuming to make.

In fact, the recipe is easier because I picked up these raviolis off the shelves in the refrigerator section at our local supermarket.  And because they are not the frozen ones, that only means – there’s no need to defrost them or even boil them beforehand.

Just open the package.  Then work with a few raviolis at a time.  First, by quickly dipping them into an egg mixture then into a bread crumb mixture then lightly fry them until golden brown.

Next, warm up your favorite marinara sauce, pour some into a small bowl and stir in some crushed red pepper, or  you can just sprinkle the red pepper flakes directly on top of the sauce and serve!  Easy to reheat them too!

Super easy, crunchy and delicious!

You can find various brand’s and various sizes of ravioli in the refrigerated sections in most supermarkets.  These happen to be the smaller and cheese-filled ravioli’s.  But you can use any size ravioli’s you prefer.

I enjoy making these fried ravioli for my family and their friends, especially on game nights.  Speaking of which, Super Bowl is around the corner….. I think I will add these to my list of grubs to serve on that night and I hope you will too!
