Air fried Ravioli

dinner entertaining lunch packedlunch pasta snack

This was a pure indulgence, because truly I love ravioli just as they are, cooked and served with a good tomato sauce or with garlic, olive oil and herbs. These air-fried ravioli were first tried when I had some leftover cooked ravioli, but they make a great snack to serve when entertaining, a fancy appetizer, a meal for a movie night or a yummy addition to the lunchbox. Using the air fryer means less oil is absorbed and there is less mess. 

Air fried ravioli


  • 6-8 ravioli
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp mixed Italian herbs (or thyme/basil/oregano)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan 

Air fried ravioli


  1. Boil the ravioli for 3 minutes and set aside to cool
  2. Mix the first 3 ingredients with a whisk in a bowl: egg, flour and water (you may also dip the ravioli first in the flour and then in the egg)
  3. In another bowl, mix breadcrumbs, herbs, cheese and season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Drop ravioli in egg mixture and toss to coat them, transfer to breadcrumb mixture one by one and coat. 
  5. Transfer to air fryer and lay out in a single layer. Spray with olive oil
  6. Cook at 185degC for 7 minutes, stopping to flip over and spray again half way through
  7. Serve with your favourite dipping sauce. I used medium salsa dip. 


  • Can be reheated in the air fryer
  • To freeze, allow to cool completely and put in a freezer bag (max 3 months)
