Filed under: appetizers,vegetarian — bonny @ 2:17 pm

 oil, for frying

1 cup buttermilk

2 cups flour mixed with Italian seasoning

1 package frozen cheese ravioli (about 24 ravioli)

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

1 jar store bought marinara sauce, heated, for dipping

Heat oil  to 325 degrees F in a fryer according to manufacturers directions.

While the oil is heating, put the buttermilk and the seasoned flour in separate shallow bowls. Working in batches, dip ravioli in buttermilk to coat completely. Allow the excess buttermilk to drip back into the bowl. Dredge ravioli in the seasoned flour. Place the ravioli on a baking sheet, and continue with the remaining ravioli.

When the oil is hot, fry the ravioli in batches, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried ravioli to paper towels to drain.

Sprinkle the fried ravioli with Parmesan and serve with a bowl of warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
