Fried Ravioli

Has anyone ever treated themselves to some fried ravioli? I had the pleasure of doing so at an Italian festival in Colorado and it was SO good!! The shells were filled with cheese and came with marinara dipping sauce. I am huge pasta fan but never would've guessed something so simple could be that delicious!!

I tried making some myself with less than ideal results, but it was still pretty tasty. I'd like to think it would be an ideal appetizer for an Italian-themed party or maybe a Super Bowl bash. I just wouldn't have any right before going to bed or else acid reflux would be a surefire consequence.

I am a fan if it's actually fried in house - I can always tell when the place has FROZEN fried ravioli and it makes me sad .

I figured you would as that stuff must be fairly popular in Cleveland! I'm from central Kentucky so we mostly have egg noodles and ketchup and call it "Italian".

Agh! My dad is from Louisville - I have NEVER seen anybody 'spread' ketchup out of glass bottle with a butter knife anywhere else but there - though I guess the overly-abundant amount of drive-through Liquor-Barns make up for that.

LOL! That does compensate for it somewhat...we do have some darn good bourbon. As for Italian food, I make it from scratch by scouring the Internet for recipes.

Love the stuff. My family is from The Hill neighborhood in St. Louis where it originated in the US as 'toasted' ravioli. Good stuff....

The frying part didn't go as I well as I had hoped. It's probably just my amateur culinary skills.

And Streck-Fu, I would love to take a trip to the Hill neighborhood and savor what is surely some of the best Italian food in the US!
