I don't care who knows it, I am a Paula Deen fan and supporter.  This is one of her recipes, that is also a family favourite..

Fried Ravioli with Marinara Cream Sauce

9 Oz package frozen cheese ravioli
3/4 Cup grated Parmesan Cheese (and more for topping when served)
2 Cups (lightly crushed) Rice Crispy Cereal (or generic equivalent)
1/4 Cup milk
1 large egg, slightly beaten
salt/pepper to taste
Marinara Cream Sauce(recipe to follow)

Cook ravioli for 2 minutes.  Place cooked ravioli on paper towels to drain, set aside. 
Put cheese and crushed rice crispies into a shallow breading dish.  Whisk together milk, eggs, salt and pepper in a shallow breading dish. Dip ravioli in egg then dredge in cheese/rice crispy mixture.  Pour oil to a depth of 1/2 inch in a skillet or dutch oven; heat to 360 degrees F.  Fry ravioli, in batches, 2 minutes on each side, or until golden.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve with Marinara Cream Sauce and grated parmesan cheese.

Marinara Cream Sauce

1 1/2 cups prepared marinara sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream (whipping cream, NOT whipped cream)

In a large saucepan, combine sauce and cream.  Bring to a boil over medium low heat.  Boil for 2 minutes.  Remove from heat.

This is a great recipe, of course I haven't ever found a bad Paula Deen recipe...enjoy!
