Easy Appetizers: How to Make Crispy Baked Ravioli With Spicy Marinara Sauce

October is National Pasta Month! Celebrate with this crispy oven-baked ravioli and spicy marinara dipping sauce. 

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 pound cheese ravioli 
  • 1 cup bread crumbs 
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated fine 
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 2 eggs, beaten 
  • 10 basil leaves, finely chopped 
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, warmed (for dipping) 
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook ravioli according to package directions. Drain well. Arrange in single layer on a baking sheet prepared with a nonstick baking mat or your favorite cooking spray. Cool completely.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In shallow bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, Parmesan, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
  3. Dredge ravioli in the flour and shake off excess. Dip in beaten egg and then coat with the seasoned bread crumb mixture. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 1 inch apart in single layer. Lightly coat tops with cooking spray.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. 
  5. Warm the marinara sauce with red chili flakes, if using, and sprinkle with freshly chopped basil. Serve.
