For a home-made alternative try these Copy Cat Olive Garden Toasted Ravioli. This dish would be great for a main dish, side or even appetizer.
Copy Cat Olive Garden Toasted Ravioli
Not only is this recipe quick, but ravioli is a favorite around here for kids and adults alike. This dish calls for thawed ravioli, so you can try this dish with either the frozen or refrigerated ravioli products. I like the idea of serving these with a marinara sauce. You can also change it up and serve with any sauce of choice.
Ranch, cheese dip, or a light pesto dip would be great. For me it’s sometimes difficult to think of a side to pair with foods like pizza or wings, but these would be perfect!
We do get coupons for Rana or Bertolli items from time to time so keep this recipe in mind if you have a coupon or see a sale for the ravioli. If you’re trying to limit fried foods, you can always try toasting these in an air fryer, or in the oven on a sheet pan after coating instead of frying in oil.
Be sure to turn and cook on both sides to make sure they have a great crispy texture!
Air Fryer Option:
Update- If you have an air fryer, Ninja Foodi, or a pressure cooker with an air frying feature, you can totally air fry these toasted ravioli! It uses a little less oil, and of course there’s not any spattering from a hot pan of oil. See the notes section for time and temperature for air frying. Be sure to note that this is approximate, as all air fryers are different and some seem to cook more quickly than others– just as regular ovens and stoves do. Leave a comment if you have used your air fryer with this recipe and love it. Thanks for reading!
Print Your Ravioli Recipe Here:
- 1 16 oz package frozen ravioli, meat or cheese
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Water
- 1 tsp. Garlic Salt
- 1 cup Flour
- 1 1/2 cups Breadcrumbs
- 1 tsp Basil
- Grated Parmesan, optional for garnish
Beat water with eggs together in a small bowl.
In another bowl, combine oregano, basil, garlic salt, and breadcrumbs.
Place flour in third bowl.
Heat oil to 350 degrees.
Dip each ravioli in flour and then egg wash and finally in breadcrumbs and set on a plate for about 5 minutes to set the coating.
Carefully place in oil and fry until golden.
Place on rack or paper towels to drain.
Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve with marinara sauce.
As an alternate cooking method, you can use your air fryer.
Before cooking, coat each ravioli in a small amount of olive oil. I use a pastry brush. Some of the coating may come off, but most of it should stick to the ravioli. Be sure to add oil to both sides.
Add 3-4 ravioli at a time into the basket of your air fryer.
Air fry at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes, flipping the ravioli over with tongs half way through the cooking time.
Remove from air fryer and start the next batch. Depending on the size of your air fryer, it may take 3-4 batches to completely cook all of the ravioli. If you have a large air fryer with multiple racks, you can cook all ravioli together.
