Fried Ravioli

Olive oil for frying
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups Italian style bread crumbs
1 box store bought bite size cheese ravioli (about 24 ravioli)
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 to 2 cups marinara sauce, store bought or homemade, heated, for dipping

Heat 2 inches of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. While the oil is heating, put the buttermilk and the bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Working in batches, dip the ravioli in the buttermilk to coat completely, allowing the excess buttermilk to drip back into the bowl. Dredge the ravioli in the bread crumbs. Place the ravioli on a baking sheet while you coat the remaining ravioli. When the oil is hot, fry the ravioli in batches, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried ravioli to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle the fried ravioli with Parmesan cheese and serve with a bowl of warmed marinara sauce for dipping. Makes 4 to 6 servings

These are a perfect addition to an antipasto platter or a fun and easy party appetizer; serve them on a big platter with a small bowl of marinara in the center for dipping.
