  1. Combine milk and egg in a small bowl. Place breadcrumbs and if desired, salt in a shallow bowl. Dip ravioli in milk mixture, and coat with breadcrumbs.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat marinara sauce over medium heat until bubbling. Reduce the heat to simmer.
  3. In a large heavy pan, pour oil to depth of 2 inches. Heat oil over medium heat until a small amount of breading sizzles and turns brown. Fry ravioli, a few at a time, 1 minute on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately with hot marinara sauce.

This was an outstanding dish!!! I followed the advice and kept the ravioli frozen and after I breaded the raviolis I put them in the freezer for 15 minutes, then layered them (one layer at a ti...

Super fast and easy, especially if you put the Ravioli and bread crumb in a ziploc to coat. Oh, I almost forgot, very yummy!

How can you not like these. I am from St. Louis, and am so glad that these are from my hometown. Hubby has co-workers from Seattle that just love this stuff. Hard to imagine that you can't ge...

Just a note.. as a St. Louisan who worked at a popular restaurant there.. it is much easier if you leave the raviolis frozen when you soak and bread them. Then freeze the breading on and fry th...
