- Fresh Ravioli. A great shortcut for this meal is by using the packaged fresh ravioli from the grocery store. It’s already cooked and ready to go. If you need to defrost some frozen ravioli from the freezer that will work too!
- Panko breadcrumbs. I love using panko breadcrumbs because it keeps the coating nice and light. If you have regular breadcrumbs in your pantry those will work too!
- Marinara. If you are a long time reader of this blog then you know I adore using Rao’s homemade marinara. It’s quick, delicious, and goes with just about everything. But! Again, use whatever kind of sauce you adore from the pantry. Um, queso would be a delicious option as well.

Honestly, any of the packaged fresh kinds you find at the grocery store will work. Again, keep in my mind you will air fry these so go with a brand you love!
