It's not the frozen meal we need. But after 2020, Trader Joe's Breaded Fried Ravioli is the one we deserve. Or the one we didn't know we needed. Now, Trader Joe's does have a solid selection of fresh ravioli. And making these on your own wouldn't be terribly difficult.
So for $3.99 you are getting a full pound of fried ravioli. Best of all, Trader Joe's has been listening to the people: we are getting directions for the air fryer.
Now, to me my air fryer is the adult answer to an easy bake oven. So there have been many moments of "will it air fry."
I'll be honest, when I tried this I intended on trying it in the oven too. But they came out so good from the air fryer they never got there.
They were crispy and just gooey in the middle.
I felt the directions were a bit off. After pre-heat of my air fryer, I felt like they were done closer to 5 minutes. But with anything air fried, just keep checking and shaking that basket.
But the reward will be all there. Perfectly and freshly fried tasting. It was crisp on the outside, but oh so nice and gooey in the middle.
I had mine with some of Trader Joe's tomato and basil sauce.
But oh, if you are looking for an appetizer or a really good dinner then this is totally awesome.
Now as far as serving size, four ravioli won't leave you very full. I'm pretty positive I opened this bag exactly twice before it was magically empty.
And to be honest, I wasn't good about sharing. I offered my husband a single ravioli to taste before I disappeared with the plate for "research purposes."
He agreed they were good. He probably would have liked more, but I was only able to procure a single bag from my local Trader Joe's.
When I go back this will end up in my cart again. I'll be sure to try to pick up a few more.
The packaging is minimal. The only packaging is the bag this product comes in.
Would I buy this again? Trader Joe's Breaded Fried Ravioli is a total buy again. Very well done. Probably not the healthiest, but oh so good when you find comfort in food.
