Home Appetizer Toasted Ravioli

Toasted Ravioli

by Laura

Today’s recipe takes good old frozen ravioli and makes it Super Bowl worthy.  The ravioli gets a double coating of breadcrumbs before slipping into a deep frying bath and cooked until a toasty golden brown.  This toasted ravioli is fairly simple to make but will wow the football crowd.  Add some bottled marinara or homemade pizza sauce for dipping to finish it off.  This toasted ravioli got rave reviews from my home team!

For those of you who are local, be sure to check out Studio 5 tomorrow at 11 am on channel 5.  I will be sharing 3 brand new ways to serve up fruit salad.
