👩🏻🍳Expert Cooking Tips
Fresh vs. Frozen Ravioli
The best part about this air fryer ravioli is that it can be made with frozen ravioli. When using ravioli straight from the freezer, it will air fry for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Of course, you can use fresh ravioli. Prepare the recipe according to the directions, and air fry for a little less time: about 13 to 15 minutes.
Make sure the ravioli are spaced out in the air fryer. Work in batches if needed. The space between each ravioli should be at least 1/2 inch. This allows the hot air to circulate around the ravioli and gives them that crispy crunch.
I recommend you serve this with marinara sauce. You can use your favorite jarred variety or whip up a batch of this no-cook pizza sauce. You can also serve it with ranch dressing or pesto.
Adjusting the Cooking Time
All air fryers cook at a slightly different rate. Keep an eye on the ravioli the first time you make it and pull it out as soon as it turns golden brown. If you let them cook too long, the cheese will start to leak out. The recipe calls for 20 minutes (for frozen) but may finish in as little as 16-18 minutes.
If using larger ravioli, you may need to adjust the time upward. I suggest hanging out in the kitchen and checking the ravioli every few minutes.
Yes, you can air-fry ravioli. Arrange the ravioli inside the air fryer, spaced 1/2-inch apart. Spray with olive oil and cook for 5-7, or until warmed through. Check the ravioli every few minutes as they will leak cheese if they overcook.
Yes, you can air-fry Trader Joe’s ravioli. Coat the ravioli in breadcrumbs if you like or cook them plain. Arrange the ravioli inside the air fryer, spaced 1/2-inch apart. Spray with olive oil and cook for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Check the ravioli every few minutes as they will leak cheese if they overcook.
No, ravioli can be air fried frozen. Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees F. Arrange the ravioli in the air fryer in a single layer and spaced apart. Air fry for approximately 20 minutes, until golden brown.
Sure! You can definitely use aluminum foil in an air fryer, but there are a few things to keep in mind. First, it’s important to check the manual of your specific air fryer model, as different models may have different guidelines regarding the use of foil. The manual will give you the most accurate information and any specific instructions to follow.
When using foil in an air fryer, it’s best to use it sparingly and only when necessary. Too much foil can interfere with the air circulation inside the fryer, which may affect the cooking process. You want that hot air to flow freely and cook your food evenly.
Make sure you place the foil in a way that allows for proper airflow. Avoid covering the entire bottom of the basket or blocking the air vents. It’s also important to prevent the foil from coming into direct contact with the heating elements, as this can cause it to melt or create a fire hazard.
If you decide to use foil, non-stick aluminum foil or perforated foil can be helpful. They allow better airflow and can prevent your food from sticking. However, be cautious with regular aluminum foil, as it may stick to certain foods.
