Fried Ravioli

From the kitchen of: Yolanda Caccamo Quackenbush


~*~I made half of the bag of raviolis.  If you want to make the whole bag, which usually includes about 45 ravioli them double my recipe~*~

* 20 Frozen Cheese Ravioli

* 1 cup of Flour

* 3 eggs

* 2 cups of Unseasoned Bread Crumbs

* 2 TBSP of chopped fresh parsley

* Salt and Pepper for Seasoning

* Olive Oil for Frying (I use pure olive oil, not extra virgin for frying)

* Marinara Sauce for dipping

~*~Optional~*~ Top Ravioli with shredded Parmesan Cheese


* Lay wax paper on top of a cookie sheet

* Spread out the frozen ravioli on the cookie sheet and let thaw for about 30-40 minutes

* While the ravioli are thawing out, get your breading station ready

* Get three trays or plates, and put the flour in one (Season with salt and pepper)

* Crack and whisk the eggs in the second one (Season with salt and pepper)

* Pour the bread crumbs in the third tray/plate, along with parsley, salt and pepper and stir together

* Dip the ravioli in the flour, then coat in the egg mixture and finally cover in the breadcrumbs and put on a plate until they are all done.

* Next, get your frying station ready by layering paper towel onto a cookie sheet and then fill a frying pan about 3/4-1 inch deep with olive oil and heat on medium/medium high heat.

* Once the oil is hot, start frying the ravioli. Once the ravioli is lightly golden brown on one side, flip over and let cook on the other side (about 4-5  minutes on each side)

* Once fried, place on the paper towel to let the oil drain.

* Once the ravioli are done, heat up your marinara sauce.

* Pour sauce into a small bowl and place ravioli around it on a dish.

* Sprinkle shredded Parmesan Cheese on top if you wish.
