Fried Ravioli with Pesto Alfredo

I found some ravioli in the bottom of my freezer and thought I’d give fried Ravioli a go. I made a Pesto Alfredo to go with them and it ended up being a match made in heaven! You can use frozen or fresh ravioli and it works great!


1 lb Frozen Ravioli; defrosted

1 cup Italian Breadcrumbs

2 large Eggs

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

Salt and Pepper to taste

Parmesan Cheese to taste

Pesto Alfredo:

¼ cup Unsalted Butter

4 Garlic Cloves; minced

1 ½ cups Heavy Cream

2 ounces Cream Cheese

1 ½ cups Parmesan Cheese

1 teaspoon Onion Powder

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 cup Pesto

Heat a saucepan over medium-low heat and add the pesto Alfredo ingredients. Slowly bring up to heat, but do not allow to boil or scald. Reduce heat to low and keep warm; stirring occasionally. 

Heat a large cast iron skillet with 2” of oil over medium heat

Add the egg to a shallow dish and the breadcrumbs and garlic powder to another. Dredge the ravioli through the egg, then the breadcrumb mixture and fry until golden brown; about 2 minutes per side

Plate the ravioli and drizzle the pesto Alfredo over top, then sprinkle on your desired amount of parmesan cheese.
