This is sooooo time consuming but sooooo worth it. They are DELICIOUS! I think they might even be better than Olive Gardens. I used a deep fat fryer once to make them, and I can tell you I won't be doing that again. I've made them in a skillet with about 1-1/2" of oil, but next time, I'm going to try baking them. I don't know how well that will work, but I think it might make things go faster. These are definitely a special occasion appetizer. Thanks for posting. I've added this one to my "Permanent Collection" Smiles!

i didn't have a chance to thaw the frozen ravioli, so I cooked them in boiling water until they rose to the top, drained them on a clean dish towel and then followed the recipe. I served them with the roasted garlic sauce recipe #149182...once you start you can't stop

Made this as recipe states, except I used cheese ravioli. They turned out pretty good, just a bit messy, as is anything you dip in egg and bread crumbs. I actually made these the same time as I made the olive garden fried mozz. sticks recipe, and the mozz. sticks were really messy in my deep fryer. But because I used the cheese ravioli, they were pretty much mozz. sticks, so I don't think I'd ever make the mozz. sticks again--but would definately make the cheese ravioli because it turns out just like square mozz. "sticks". So thanks for the recipe, I'm not sure how often I will make them, but will definately make them again.
