This past weekend I had a pot of spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove and the aroma coming from the kitchen had my mouth watering and my stomach rumbling. Yet the sauce still had a couple of hours to cook. What’s a girl to do? Aside from sneaking a few “quality taste tests” the other option is to make a quick appetizer to quiet our hunger until the sauce is ready. Enter these crispy fried cheese ravioli. They are quick. They are easy. And they are oh so addictive.
I am not quite sure why I never thought to make these before. I have seen them on numerous menus and tried them at restaurants a few times but I had never made them at home before last weekend. If I would’ve known how easy they are I would’ve done it a whole lot earlier. What makes them so quick and easy is the pre-made ravioli. For this recipe, store-bought ravioli is your friend, you can find them in the refrigerated section with the other fresh pastas and they cook up in a snap. There are several varieties but I think cheese works best with these. And if you can find it, four cheese would be even better.
I didn't have any at the time but these would be delicious dipped in some warm marinara sauce. Enjoy!
