These crispy Air Fryer Fried Ravioli are easy to make, yet very impressive. These are absolutely perfect for game day, parties, or even the family dinner table.
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.
If you’re looking for a simple appetizer even the kids will love, I highly suggest trying this one out. It’s delicious!
Air Fryer Ravioli
For the Ravioli:
- 1 egg , large
- 1/2 bag store-bought mini cheese ravioli (about 18-20 ravioli)
- non-stick canola cooking spray (optional)
- 1 cup marinara sauce , warmed, for dipping
For the Dredge:
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese , grated
- Set up a dredge station with two bowls. In the first bowl, beat the egg. In the second bowl combine all the dredge ingredients.
- Prepare the Ravioli. Keep the ravioli frozen, until ready to dredge. Dip the ravioli into beaten egg, then dredge into breadcrumbs and put into fryer basket.
- Repeat. Repeat with remaining ravioli.
- Cook the Ravioli: Spray the ravioli with non-stick cooking spray (optional) to encourage browning. Close the fryer basket and press power. Press the “M” icon and select the “Fry” icon. Increase the temperature to 400 degrees F. Set the time to 12 minutes. Halfway through, shake the basket and turn the ravioli over. Add additional cooking spray, if needed.
- Serve. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and serve hot with marinara sauce.

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.
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?
Sorry for the late reply. No the bigger ones shouldn’t matter much in time. Thawed may cook faster, but also be easier to bread.
Is there a way to get the bread crumbs to stick to the ravioli? I tried this and hardly any of the Panko would stick to them
I don’t have any trouble getting them to stick. If you are having trouble try pressing them into the mixture firmly with your fingers. I hope that helps.
This was good. Next time I’d use plain breadcrumbs so it’s more like Olive Garden.
What did you use the grated parmesan for?
I have cleared this up in the instructions. Thank YOU!
These were great, especially with the fresh marinara.
So tasty! Can’t wait to make these again. thanks for the recipe.
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!
