  • 16 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup cornflake crumbs
  • Dried Parsley
  • Oil for deep frying
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 jar RAGU Homestyle Sauce
  • 2 eggs beaten


  • Cook Tortellini according package directions, Rinse and allow to cool.
  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine bread crumbs, cornflake crumbs, parsely, salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a deep fryer or skillet over medium heat. In small batches dip the cooled tortellini in egg and place in resealable bag and shake to coat. Set aside and wait for oil to heat.
  • In small batches place the breaded tortellini in oil until golden brown about 5-7 mins..
  • Dip in Sauce or mix in sauce to enjoy.


This would also work for the cute mini ravioli I've seen. You can use full size ravioli but you may need to double the coating, and they will take a little bit longer to fry.
