Makes: 4 servings | Level: Moderately Easy


1 pound large ravioli, fresh or frozen

1 cup cornmeal

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese for coating ravioli

Salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided

use your favorite jarred marinara sauce


STEP 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil for ravioli. Salt water and cook a minute less than package directions for either fresh or frozen pasta, then drain thoroughly.

STEP 3. Combine cornmeal, 1/4 cup of Parmesan and lots of black pepper on a plate.

STEP 4. Toss the drained ravioli in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Coat raviolis in the cornmeal and cheese mixture. Shake off excess and fry the ravioli until golden on each side, 4-5 minutes total.

STEP 5. Remove them to a paper-towel lined plate and season with some salt.

Serve with jarred marinara sauce for dipping.
