Unfried Ravioli

Remember when I made simple baked ravioli , I told you that there is another way to make this treat and it is dip the ravioli in egg, then bread crumbs and fry it or bake it. After several successful attempt to feed the kids plain baked ravioli, I made this one and my daughter just loved it. I made it with three cheese ravioli so it was tasted like mozzarella sticks but in bite size.  Again you can deep fry this but I baked it. I didn't use egg either, I like to dip it in buttermilk and then season breadcrumbs. It gives same texture without that eggy smell. Believe me, I love eggs but can't stand that eggy smell. But if you don't have that kind of problem, use eggs by all means. This is perfect for party appetizer & kids lunch box too. I made it with two bags, and froze it so whenever I need it for lunch box just have to heat up in toaster oven and I am done.

Some how this is very famous from St. Louis, Missouri. They just loved this fried cheesey  dough with warm marinara sauce.

Ingredients :

1 packet store bought 3 cheese or cheese ravioli
1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup warm marinara sauce
Herbs as needed to season bread crumbs and buttermilk
salt and pepper as needed


Defrost the ravioli first.
Heat the oven at 350 F.
In two separate bowls, take buttermilk in one bowl  and in another seasoned bread crumbs.
If its not in the season , use your available dry herbs and salt and pepper for both - buttermilk and crumbs.
Keep it aside.

Spray oil in baking dish.
Take one ravioli, dip it in buttermilk with left hand , make sure its fully covered in buttermilk, take it out and put it in bread crumbs, now use right hand for bread crumbs, making sure that it covered nicely.
Line up in baking dish,
Finish all and put it in the oven for 20 minutes, turn in between if one side is brown.
Make both sides brown.
Take it out and leave it at room temperature before giving to anyone especially to kids because inside is piping hot.
Serve it with marinara sauce. If you like you can sprinkle grated parmesan cheese on top too.
