Toasted Ravioli

We don't eat out at restaurants very often......so when we do.... and I try something that is just so wonderful......I try to re-create it at home to enjoy.

We recently ate at Olive Gardens. We got an appetiser plate and one of the items was Toasted Ravioli. It is so good!...What's better...it is so EASY to make!

Select the kind of ravioli( about a dozen) you like best.

Also, you need one egg, lightly beaten.

Also....Italian style breadcrumbs. ( 1 cup)

Cook ravioli in boiling water until they float to the top. Remove from water and drain. Set aside to cool.
Heat vegetable oil in fryer or skillet at least 2 inches deep to a temperature of 375 degrees.
Dip ravioli in beaten egg, then cover in breadcrumbs.
Fry in batches in hot oil until golden brown, drain
Sprinkle hot ravioli with Parmesan cheese.
Heat marinara sauce or spaghetti sauce and set aside in serving bowl.
Serve ravioli with dipping sauce. Enjoy!

I have been wanting to make some of these for a while. Thanks for sharing your recipe. They just look so yummy for a snack. I also have been looking for a pizza dough recipe, you don't happen to have a good one that you have tried out?

You talented little thing you!!! I didn't realize you had a cooking blog, too! What the heck!?? You know, toasted ravioli was actually invented here in St. Louis and are at every single restaurant - if it's not an Italian restaurant, then they're on the appetizer menu of any other restaurant - even all the pizza places have them, and they're also in every grocery store. You're RIGHT, they're SOOOOO good!! They're also good with a butter/Parmesan sauce also. And I can tell you exactly what I'm going to make tomorrow - bread in my bread machine, but baking it in the oven - you're definitely an inspiration for me today...darn it. HA HA HA This is just too fun ~
