    Another Italian appetizer by Giada De Laurentiis. Some people might like a larger portion of marinara sauce, it depends upon your preference.

      This was awesome! I made it a main dish, but cut it down for 2 (10 ravioli). I followed the recipe exactly, except I put the parmesan on my sauce! They were good; the buttermilk is an excellent medium for the breadcrumbs to adhere to, while adding a little bite. Thanks so much for sharing, WiGal.

      This is an excellent appetizer or small meal!.I did not use buttermilk but a small amount of evaporated milk. It seemed to hold better. If you fresh frozen ravs, defrost and pat dry first. You can use other cheese, asiago grated is great also. If you want to try another dipping sauce,balsamic vinegar is also another one to put on the table with the marinara or italian red sauce. This is good! I personally loved fried ravs. Thanks for posting. Do not get the oil too hot, watch the thermometer, olive oil has a low flame point for all of those who do not have a deep fryer or fry pan.
