Sarah- Hi everyone! First of all, I would like to say sorry Vaquas and I have been MIA! We had something came up in our personal lives. We are still going through it but it's coming together. Anyways, I'm back with a brand new recipe. It's Fried Ravioli. Don't you love some good old fashion italian food with an American twist?
I came up with this recipe when I tried feeding ravioli to my picky toddler, she wouldn't eat the normal ravioli; so I decided to kick it up a notch. I boiled and baked it for 5 min, still it wasn't good enough. I decided to get some breadcrumbs and some seasoning and fried it. Finally! It was a success . The only down part for me is whenever we have normal ravioli for dinner, I have to make fried ravioli for the toddler it takes few extra steps but she loves it so it's worth it.
It's a great game day appetizer too. It's easy and quick for some munchies during the game. If you want to have a quick appetizer for the next dinner party that you host. The thing I love about this recipe, it goes with every kind of party formal or casual. You can make it even for valentines day when you want to impress your significant other as a starter.
The recipe below says use warmed marinara sauce, however, if you want to dip in ranch, pesto, or garlic sauce be my guest. There is no right or wrong dipping sauce when it comes to this recipe. I hope you give this recipe a try. If you have any questions about our recipes, techniques, or you just want to say hi! Please feel free to message us.
