Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


Ingredients

1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated ravioli, I used spinach and ricotta ravioli, see shopping tips

1 cup homemade multi-grain or whole wheat bread crumbs (I used 2 slices Milton’s Multi-grain bread to make the crumbs)

¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 large eggs, I like Egg-lands’s Best 

Cooking Spray, I used olive oil spray

Pizza sauce or marinara sauce for dipping, see shopping tips


Instructions

1. Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees.

2. Cook ravioli in boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.

3. Make your own bread crumbs: Toast 2 slices of bread. Add to blender or food processor to create crumbs. In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. In another small bowl, beat 2 eggs.

4. Lightly spray inside of air fryer basket with cooking spray. Dip cooked ravioli into eggs, then dip each side into bread crumb mixture. Place breaded ravioli in a single layer in your air fryer basket. Set your cook time to 8 minutes. No need to turn ravioli halfway. Repeat with remaining ravioli.

5. Serve at once with a side of pizza sauce or marinara sauce, for dipping.

Makes 14 ravioli appetizers.


Shopping Tips
I used 1 (!0 oz) package Giovanni Rana Spinach & Ricotta Ravioli. It’s fantastic! They make a variety of different ravioli. Most supermarkets sell this brand in the refrigerator pasta section. Here’s a link to all their ravioli: https://www.giovanniranausa.com/products.htmlhttps://www.giovanniranausa.com/products.html
Or, you can use your favorite ravioli.

I used Milton’s multigrain bread for the bread crumbs. Most supermarkets sell it and so doesTrader Joe’s. Or, use your favorite. 

Classico or Ragu pizza sauce work great for dipping.
