I got this recipe off of "Everyday Italian" with Giada De Laurentiis. TALK about GOOD!! I made it for my husband (who is a ONLY meat and potatoes kind of guy) and he flipped! It's even better than cheese sticks...and who can top that?

This was really good..and different. Everyone liked them. I did make a small change after reading reviews, and breaded them a little differently by dusting in flour first, then the buttermilk, then in a combination of breadcrumbs and Panko. The breading did stay on. Thank you for this recipe.
- olive oil, for frying
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1 (24 count) boxstore-bought cheese ravioli (about 24 ravioli)
- 1⁄4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- store bought marinara sauce, heated, for dipping
Directions See How It's Made
- Pour enough olive oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 325 degrees F.
- While the oil is heating, put the buttermilk and the bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls.
- Working in batches, dip ravioli in buttermilk to coat completely. Allow the excess buttermilk to drip back into the bowl.
- Dredge ravioli in the bread crumbs. Place the ravioli on a baking sheet, and continue with the remaining ravioli.
- When the oil is hot, fry the ravioli in batches, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes.
- Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried ravioli to paper towels to drain.
- Sprinkle the fried ravioli with Parmesan and serve with a bowl of warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
