Ready In:


  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen cheese ravioli (I like square, plain cheese filled)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 12 cups breadcrumbs (I like Italian seasoned)
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar marinara sauce


  • Allow ravioli to thaw. (I usually just let them sit for an hour or so, but I have also run them under cold water to thaw as well).
  • Beat egg in small bowl.
  • Place breadcrumbs in pie plate.
  • Heat about 1/4-inch of olive oil over medium high heat.
  • Dip ravioli in egg then coat with breadcrumbs and pan fry until golden brown on both sides.
  • Serve with warmed marinara.
  • Tip: I like to dip and coat the ravioli and place on a plate and refrigerate then cook them just before serving.
  • I've made them as far ahead of time at 3 hours and they are still wonderful!

  1. Amazingly good and easy. Added this one to my cookbook. My wife and my girls loved it. Great job jill4man.
  2. I served these alongside Olive Garden Copycat Zuppa Tuscana (recipe #38298) and homemade pizza sauce. I wish I would have paid more attention to the suggestion to bread earlier and then fry. It just would have made it a lot easier. Best eaten still warm. Very good recipe for ease, flavor, and something just a little different.
  3. I don't eat at Olive Garden so I don't know how theres are but I just made these with cheese and meat ravioli (too lazy to make from scratch tonight) and I made a homemade marinara sauce. My goodness was it good. My husband says this is the only way he wants ravioli now. I did the standard breading procedure of flour-egg-breadcrumbs.
  4. LOVE THESE!!! My picky two year old wolfed these down,, way to go Jill
