Fried Ravioli

This is a St Louis creation. I believe that if you go to St. Louis, you have to eat ribs, gooey butter cake, and fried ravioli.. I had this in1996 after a business meeting in St. Louis. I had forgotten about them until my daughter visited a friend and raved about them. Now, I have easy and long form recipes here if you don’t want to make the ravioli from scratch. I hope you like.
