Recipe Tips


Beat eggs and milk in shallow bowl until blended; set aside.  Combine cracker crumbs, garlic powder and 3 Tbsp. Parmesan in separate shallow bowl.


Heat oil to 375°F in large saucepan on medium-high heat.  Meanwhile, cover baking sheet with double layer of paper towels.


Dip ravioli, one at a time, into egg mixture, then cracker crumb mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides of each ravioli with each ingredient.


Add ravioli, in small batches, to hot oil; cook 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown, turning occasionally.  Remove ravioli from oil; place on prepared baking sheet to drain.


Sprinkle with basil and remaining Parmesan.  Serve with marinara sauce.
