This Air Fryer Ravioli is a healthier version of a deep-fried comfort food. It’s made with fresh cheese ravioli coated in breading and air fried until golden and crispy.

Cheese ravioli is one of the best comfort foods!

Pasta is pretty great on its own, but stuff it with cheese and I am done.

Now, while I love my Baked Ravioli Recipe (really, any ravioli recipe!), this Air Fryer Ravioli recipe combines one of my favorite foods and one of my favorite kitchen appliances.

The result is ravioli with a warm, melty, cheesy middle and a delicious, golden, crispy exterior. It takes just 20 minutes to come together and it’s so darn good!

We like to serve these when we’re have appetizers for dinner, along with Spicy Baked Feta (Mpougiourdi), Taco Dip and Baked Chicken Wings!

Ingredients Needed:

ingredients needed for air fryer ravioli.
  • Eggs: eggs are used to coat the outside of the ravioli to help the breading stick and to create a delicious golden color.
  • Breadcrumbs: I recommend using Italian seasoned breadcrumbs for some extra flavor. If you don’t, you’ll want to add more seasonings yourself (Italian seasoning or any dried Italian herbs are great additions!)
  • Parmesan Cheese: a coating of parmesan adds delicious salty cheesiness. We can’t have too much cheese, right?!
  • Seasonings: a simple duo of Italian seasoning and salt gives this Fried Ravioli just the right amount of flavor.
  • Ravioli: use fresh cheese ravioli or frozen, thawed ravioli.
  • Oil Spray: be sure to use a non-aerosol cooking spray so as not to damage the coating on the air fryer basket.
  • Tomato Marinara Sauce: for serving!

How to Make Air Fryer Ravioli

This Air Fryer Ravioli is so deliciously crispy and satisfying, but takes just 10 minutes to prep!

  1. Prep the ingredients: In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs. In another, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and seasonings.
  2. Bread the ravioli: Coat the fresh ravioli first in eggs, then in the breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Repeat until all ravioli are coated.
  4. Air fry: Preheat the air fryer to 400ºF, then cook the ravioli in a single layer until golden.

Air Fryer Ravioli FAQs

Can you fry ravioli instead of boiling?

Absolutely! If you don’t have an air fryer and just want to make these on the stove top, you can fry them in about 1/2″ of oil — just enough to brown both sides.

Can you cook frozen ravioli in the air fryer?

Usually, yes. However, for this recipe, I don’t recommend using frozen ravioli. Since we’re using a breading, we want the ravioli to cook relatively quickly. If all you have is frozen ravioli, I recommend thawing before coating.

Can I prep fried ravioli in advance and freeze?

Definitely yes! This is a great party recipe that can be prepped (coated in bread crumbs) and flash frozen. Then place them all in a freezer bag and simply air fryer before serving. You may need to add a minute or two additional cook time.

How to store:

This Fried Ravioli is definitely best right away, but leftovers will last in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. To reheat, warm back in the air fryer at 400ºF for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.

Tips and Notes

  • Use fresh or thawed ravioli. Either will work, but fully frozen will not!
  • Preheat the air fryer. Make sure the air fryer is nice and hot before you add in the ravioli. If it’s heating up with the ravioli inside, the outsides can burn before the insides are cooked through.
  • Use a non-aerosol cooking spray. Cooking sprays containing aerosol can damage the coating on the air fryer basket.
  • Don’t over-crowd. Make sure that the ravioli is in a single layer in the air fryer basket before cooking. If it’s stacked, it won’t crisp up properly.
  • Serve immediately! For the best, crispy texture, serve your ravioli hot and fresh out of the air fryer!
  • Use another ravioli. I love the fresh cheese ravioli, but feel free to use ravioli with other fillings too!

Serving Suggestions

I love to serve this Fried Ravioli as a light lunch, dinner, or snack with a side of tomato marinara sauce for dipping.

Feel free to bulk this meal up with a side of Garlic Bread, Breadsticks, Roasted Green Beans, or a simple side salad.
