Olive Garden Toasted Ravioli Recipe

Packaged ravioli makes this appetizer an easy go-to for a weeknight dinner or when friends drop by. The Olive Garden originals are filled with beef, but cheese or spinach works just fine too!

These are just super easy to make and very easy going down. I’ll be making these often.

Olive Garden Toasted Ravioli Recipe

Serves 3 – 4


6 -10 cups canola oil (as required by fryer)
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup progresso Italian style breadcrumbs
12 beef ravioli, premade (fresh, or if frozen, thawed)
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1⁄2 cup marinara sauce, warmed


Preheat the oil in your deep fryer to 325 degrees.

Combine the beaten egg with the milk in shallow bowl. Pour the breadcrumbs into another shallow bowl.

Bread the ravioli by dipping each one in the milk and egg, then into the breadcrumbs. Arrange the breaded ravioli on a plate and let them sit for 5 minutes so that the breading sticks.

When the ravioli has rested, drop a handful into the oil. Depending on the size of your fryer, you may want to fry the ravioli in batches so they aren’t too crowded. Fry the breaded ravioli for 1-2 minutes or until they’re golden brown. Remove them to a draining rack or a paper-towel lined plate.

When all the raviolis are cooked, arrange them on a serving plate and sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.

Serve the dish with a small bowl of warmed marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
