Recipe by WiGal
READY IN: 30mins


  • olive oil, for frying
  • 2
    cups Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 20
    ounces cheese ravioli (about 24 ravioli)
  • 14
    cup parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 9
    ounces marinara sauce, heated, for dipping


  • 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.
