I catered a dinner party the other night and normally I don’t use a recipe I have never prepared before at a party.  But I saw these and came up with a variation of my own, and they were a hit!

Fried Ravioli

  • Olive oil for frying
  • 1 pkg frozen ravioli, any kind (I used cheese)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsps chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • salt & pepper

Boil ravioli for about 2-3 minutes only, then transfer to bowl of ice water to stop cooking.

Heat oil in deep skillet or deep fryer.  Mix cheese, pecans and parsley in a large shallow plate.  Beat milk, eggs, salt & pepper in a separate bowl.

Dip the ravioli in the milk/egg mixture, then dredge in the cheese/nut mixture, twice.

Fry in oil about 2 minutes on each side, or 3 minutes total in a deep fryer, until golden.  Drain on paper towels.

Serve hot with a creamy marinara sauce.  I used a jarred marinara sauce, added about 1/2 cup of whipping cream, and doctored it up with some fresh rosemary and fresh garlic.

Mangia Bene!
