When I first saw Fried Ravioli on a menu, I thought it was strange to fry pasta but after I tried it, I thought it was absolutely delicious.

Let me tell you about them. The outside coating of breadcrumbs gets crispy and delicious while the inside pasta dough stays pillowy and soft. The ricotta cheese inside is just the right amount of gooey and delicious.

Air Fryer Fried Ravioli is a quick and easy (not to mention fun) snack. We served these for a kids party and the kids absolutely gobbled them up.

I have a couple of other recipes to make a bag of these bite-sized ravioli; the first is my Baked Ravioli with Rosa Pasta Sauce and the second is a Cheesy Ravioli Skillet.

Both are 30-minute meals and both start with the same frozen cheese ravioli we used to create this recipe.  These quick and easy meals are a huge hit with my family. My daughter loves the leftovers in her thermos for lunch the next day. Easy-peasy.

Flash forward to the purchase of my new Power Air Fryer XL – and my family absolutely loves these crispy Air Fryer Fried Ravioli. My daughter especially loved this recipe and with some fresh Marinara Sauce, these bite-sized beauties sure are hard to resist.

  1. Tried this exactly as posted with the Ninja Foodi and Kroger brand mini cheese ravioli (and Italian breadcrumbs in the dredge). Sadly, at 10 minutes they were already kinda overdone and disappointing. Not sure what went wrong, but next time I might go for less time, or less heat.

  2. Couple quick things, Wanted to try this tonight.
    1. Is there a difference if I use the bigger raviolis?
    2. Should I put the ravioli in the freezer for the day if they are currently just in the fridge?

  3. I used regular sized ravioli and added a couple minutes into the cooking time. Friends all loved them but next time I will try the mini ravioli!
