Ravioli are a popular type of pasta with a sealed filing. They originate from Italy, but they can also be found in other cultures like China (wonton) or Russia (pelmeni). Today we played a little with the recipe, and filled our ravioli with bacon, mozzarella, and chili paste before adding them in the heated oil, in order to be deep-fried.

Ingredients Needed for Bacon and Mozzarella Bread Ravioli

4 slices of bacon, chopped
8 slices of bread
7 ounces of mozzarella
4 teaspoons of red chili paste
vegetable oil for frying
½ cup parmesan, shredded
1 teaspoon chili flakes
½ cup chopped parsley

How to Cook Bacon and Mozzarella Bread Ravioli

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat, add the bacon in it and cook it until golden.
  2. In order to make 1 ravioli, place 2 toast slices one on top of the other. Use a cooking ring, around 3 inches (7.5 cm) diameter to give them a round shape.
  3. Level the bread slices until thin.
  4. Next, use a smaller cooking ring (around 2 inches diameter) to make round shapes of mozzarella.
  5. Place the cheese between 2 slices of bread and top it with 1 teaspoon of chili paste and crispy bacon. Drizzle the sides of the bread with a mix of flour and water.
  6. Secure the filling by pressing the sides of the bread using a fork.
  7. Use the remaining ingredients to make three more ravioli.
  8. Heat the oil in a saucepan over high heat. Fry the ravioli until golden.
  9. Next, add the parmesan, chili flakes, and parsley in a large bowl. Coat the ravioli with the parmesan mix.
