This is all you need to make air fryer ravioli!
- fresh or frozen
- cheese ravioli or meat filled
- Bread crumbs – Italian seasoned is best
- Parmesan cheese – shredded
- Olive oil spray if you want them REALLY crispy – generally isn’t necessary
- Marinara sauce to dip the ravioli in
- Non stick cooking spray for air fryer basket
If you needed an egg free air fryer fried ravioli recipe you could dip into olive oil instead. The breadcrumbs just won’t stick quite as well, but it’s an alternative if you need it.
How do you thaw frozen ravioli?
- Fill a pot with 2/3 water, put on the stovetop on medium/high, and bring to a boil.
- When the water is boiling add 1 teaspoon of salt and add your frozen ravioli.
- Stir so none of the ravioli stick to the bottom of the pot.
- Cook uncovered 4-7 minutes.
If using them to make air fryer ravioli, turn your pot off and use a slotted spoon to remove one at a time. Put into the whisked egg, flip. Then put into breadcrumb mixture and coat on both sides well before putting raviolis in a single layer inside your air fryer basket.
How do you cook fresh ravioli?
Use same instructions as frozen except do NOT stir, they may break apart. Cooking time remains the same.Take a bite out of one to test if pasta and filling is cooked before turning pot off.
Do ravioli float when done?
Yes. That is a good indicator that yours are cooked through and ready to be taken out. Best to cut one in half though and taste it to ensure filling is cooked to your liking.
Allowing them to cool a bit to make these is helpful so you can handle them. The trick is to make sure they don’t stick together.
- If you take out a few at a time from the pot and put them in a bowl with a bit of olive oil, that works best.
Breaded ravioli is a great game day appetizer I tell you!
Can you reheat fried ravioli?
You can, it is one of those make ahead recipes that freezes beautifully if there are any left. When you’re ready to serve it, just take it straight from the freezer and reheat them on a cookie sheet in the oven for about 10-15 minutes at 375 – 400 degrees.
- I really recommend eating your air fryer ravioli right out of the machine though!! They’re the best that way and honestly we’ve never had any left over.

- You can serve this with air fryer cauliflower
- or air fryer zucchini chips as a side dish
These are made very similarly, but I used Panko breadcrumbs with the air fryer zucchini. With both you just dip into the whisked egg, then in the bowl combined with breadcrumbs, seasonings and parmesan.
- This will create the crispy coating you want on your vegetables and/or pasta like you see here.
- Biggest tip: Make sure that you do not overlap the food in your air fryer basket. You need the hot air to be able to circulate all around each piece for optimal results.
