I have yet to find a vegetable or cheese-based item that I don’t enjoy air frying. And these ravioli are no exception. You’re going to LOVE the taste and how easy they are to make!

Just like my Easy Air Fryer Pickles, Fried Artichoke Hearts, Air Fryer Pretzel Bites, and Air Fryer Zucchini Chips, this recipe takes delicious ingredients and turns them into a healthy(ish) appetizer or game-day snack.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Air Fry Ravioli Instead of Boiling it?

Yes, and it is delicious! That being said, ravioli in the air fryer is closer to a snack or an appetizer. When you boil it and toss it with sauce, it works better as a main dish.

How Long Does it Take to Air Fry Toasted Ravioli?

Each air fryer will be slightly different, but it takes my Cosori 5.8 quart model ~8 minutes at 390F to air fry ravioli.

-For frozen ravioli add 1-2 minutes to the cooking time.
-For mini ravioli, subtract 1-2 minutes from the cooking time.

Do You Cook the Ravioli Before Frying?

You do not need to cook the ravioli before air frying. If you use frozen it will cook in the fryer but I do find the corners can get a bit tough.

If you do choose to precook the ravioli, cook it according to package directions. I like to then place it on a clean kitchen towel for 5 minutes to remove any excess water.

Can You Reheat Fried Ravioli?

Yes! Cook at 390F degrees for 3 minutes. I do find a quick spritz of olive oil spray from the Misto before reheating does make it crispier.

What Goes With Fried Ravioli?

All the dipping sauces! We dipped ours in the best homemade pizza sauce, but Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce would be great too. And if you love something with some kick, I highly recommend our Chipotle Sauce.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t have buttermilk, you can mix 2 eggs with 2 tbsp of water.
  • This recipe is written so that you don’t have much breading left over. If you prefer a heavier coating of breading, increase the panko, breadcrumbs, and Italian seasoning.
  • After spraying the olive oil on the breading, allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes. This will allow the panko to soak up the oil, creating the crunchiest coating.

Crispy and packed with flavor, these air fryer ravioli are a fun and poppable treat! Perfect as a quick appetizer or a healthy game-day snack, toasted ravioli is sure to become a crowd favorite.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz cheese ravioli {refrigerated is preferred}
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese {grated}
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Instructions

  • In one bowl combine panko, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, and breadcrumbs, buttermilk in another, and flour mixed with baking powder in another.
    2/3 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup panko, 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs, 3 tbsp all-purpose flour, 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, 1 tbsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Set a large empty plate or a baking sheet aside.
  • It's easiest to work in batches of 2-3. With your left hand, dredge three ravioli through the flour and shake the excess off. 
    8 oz cheese ravioli
  • With your left hand, drop them into the buttermilk, stirring to coat.
  • Use your right hand and drop them into the breadcrumb bowl. Place your breaded ravioli onto a plate.
  • Once you've finished breading all of them, spray them with olive oil spray while they're still on the plate. Really coat them and then let them sit 2-3 minutes.
    2 tsp olive oil
  • Brush the basket of the air fryer with olive oil and gently place them in the basket. Don't overcrowd the basket.
  • Cook for 5 minutes at 390F degrees. Flip (easiest to use the tines of a fork). Spray the tops with additional olive oil spray if they need it.
  • Cook for an additional 3 minutes and then serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
