Fried Ravioli With Marinara Dipping Sauce

"Fried Ravioli with Smoked Marinara. This was my first attempt at frying ravioli, inspired by one that I saw @supperwithmichelle make last year. I used store-bought (I love @giovanniranausa) ravioli filled with mozzarella that I coated in egg then seasoned fine bread crumbs. Shallow fry in olive oil until golden. I used a smoking gun to add an interesting depth to the marinara. This was so freakin' yum!!!!"

Recipe Card


  • 1 (12 oz) container fresh ravioli
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Extra Virgin olive oil, as needed
  • prepared marinara sauce, for dipping


  • Step 1

    Lightly beat the eggs with a fork, then toss in the ravioli. Remove the ravioli from the egg mixture one by one and let excess drip off. Coat in the seasoned breadcrumbs, making sure the crumbs adhere to both sides of the pasta.

  • Step 2

    In a deep, heavy bottomed skillet, heat about 2 inches of olive oil over medium high heat until shimmering. Add the coated ravioli (you may have to do this in batches so you don't crowd the pan) and fry for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove from oil and let cool slightly on a baking tray set up with a cooling rack. 

  • Step 3

    Serve with warmed marinara sauce.
