Fried Ravioli - The Healthier Version


It is a great idea to keep some ingredients on hand during the holidays for easy appetizers in case company drops by. This appetizer only takes four ingredients, plus the marinara sauce for dipping and is quick to put together and serve. And, as I like to do, a healthier version is achieved by baking the breaded ravioli, instead of frying. Serve these hot from the oven and the cheese will be melted and delicious, along with a crispy coating that is perfect for dipping.

The original version of this recipe can be found here, but I have changed it to make it lower fat.

Fried (Baked) Ravioli

2 cups Italian Bread Crumbs

1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

1 cup buttermilk

1 package (about 24) fresh cheese ravioli

1 jar marinara sauce

Mix breadcrumbs and cheese in a shallow bowl. Pour buttermilk in another shallow bowl. Dip ravioli in buttermilk and then dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place on a cookie sheet, sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Serve with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.

Have a great weekend! I plan on getting in the Christmas spirit and hope to see some snow :-)
