Toasted Ravioli Recipe

Toasted ravioli is a St. Louis specialty consisting of crunchy, breaded pasta that is topped with grated parmesan and served with a marinara-style sauce on the side.

The dish is served hot as an appetizer. Despite the name, toasted ravioli are deep-fried, not toasted, making it yet another example of a misnomer.

Food experts believe that the first iteration of the dish was made in the 1950s, at a restaurant called Angelo Oldani’s. The ravioli can be filled with a variety of ingredients, and some of the most popular ingredients include eggs, cheese, spinach, and beef.



16 ounce of jar marinara sauce

1 large egg

2 tablespoons whole milk

3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon salt (Optional)

25 ounce package frozen cheese ravioli, thawed

3 cups vegetable oil for frying, or as needed

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese




Over medium heat, melt marinara sauce in a saucepan until bubbling. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until needed.

Whisk egg and milk together in a small bowl. Whisk bread crumbs and salt together in a second small bowl.

Dip each ravioli in milk mixture, then in bread crumbs to coat.

In a heavy pan, heat 2 inches oil until a small amount of breading sizzles and turns brown. 

Fry ravioli, a few at a time, until golden, about 1 minute per side. Drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle warm ravioli with Parmesan and serve immediately with hot marinara sauce on the side.





Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.kjv
