Paula, this recipe looks great, but lots of steps. I have a great fried ravioli recipe that is quick, easy and delicious. I thaw one bag ravioli (stuffed with your favorite ingredients.) I prefer to lie them on a paper towel to drain excess water. Add oil to large pot about 2" deep and heat to 360 degrees. Pour about 1 cup buttermilk in one dish and about 1c Italian seasoned bread crumbs (or similar) into another dish. You can add more of each if needed. Dip a ravioli into buttermilk and then cover well with seasoned bread crumbs. Place carefully into hot oil and cook until golden brown turning occassionally. Remove with slotted spoon or web and place on paper towels to drain oil. Immediately grate fresh parmesan cheese over top. Continue until all batches of fried ravioli are completed. Makes a great appetizer as well. Serve with your favorite marinara or spaghetti sauce on the side for dipping. Hope you like it! Patti
