St. Louis Ravioli Dip

That yummy goodness that’s tucked into traditional cheese ravioli? That’s exactly what this saucy, cheesy dip is, thanks to a mix of ricotta, white Cheddar and Swiss cheeses, along with McCormick® Thick & Zesty Spaghetti Sauce Mix. We’re dipping breadsticks, garlic bread and our own version of breaded, fried ravioli into this crowd-pleasing appetizer.

Serves: Makes 3 1/2 cups or 28 (2-tablespoon) servings.

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. For the Ravioli Dip, prepare spaghetti sauce as directed on package. Set aside and allow to cool slightly.

  • Mix cream cheese, egg and shredded cheeses in medium bowl until well blended. Spread 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture on bottom of 9-inch round cake pan sprayed with no stick cooking spray. Spread 1/2 of the spaghetti sauce over cream cheese mixture. Repeat layers. Drop tablespoonfuls of ricotta cheese on top of final sauce layer.

  • Bake 20 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with basil.

  • Meanwhile for the Ravioli Dippers, mix milk and egg in small bowl. Mix bread crumbs and Seasoning on a large plate. Dip ravioli into egg mixture and then coat with bread crumb mixture. Discard any remaining egg and bread crumb mixtures.

  • Pour 2 inches of oil in large skillet. Heat on medium heat. Fry ravioli in batches, about 1 minute per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve ravioli dippers with Roasted Ravioli Dip.
