Fried Lobster Raviolis with a Red Pepper Cream Sauce

I picked up frozen Lobster Raviolis from a nearby Italian Market and parboiled them for 8 minutes...

I made this recipe for a Red Pepper Cream Sauce (link is also found below)

NOTES:
- I cheated and used a 12 oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained
- used toasted walnuts instead of pine nuts
- half the amount of cream
- sauteed up my minced garlic first instead of adding it raw
- In the end, I heated my sauce up on the stove...being careful NOT to boil

After I dabbed my parboiled raviolis dry, I dipped them in *homemade buttermilk then coated them in breadcrumbs

*1 cup milk, 1.5 T lemon juice - sit for 15 minutes and you have homemade buttermilk!

After you fry your raviolis up in the 320 degree olive oil for about 1.5 minutes each side... allow them to sit a few minutes to set, sprinkle with cheese and then slice them into desired shape...or....

Leave them whole for a lovely appetizer!

YUM. What perfect party food. I have always wanted to tried fried ravioli - another one to add to the resolutions list. That should go perfectly along with taking up rock climbing and doing more yoga. Happy new year!!

Too few folks understand the delectable goodness of fried ravioli! Guess that's due to so many US folks growing up with the canned variety! Such a tasty post - great sauce!
