Crunchy Oven-Fried Ravioli

Crunchy Oven-Fried Ravioli - slightly adapted from How Sweet Eats
1 pound frozen beef ravioli 
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 3/4 cups panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese + more for topping
1/4 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
marinara sauce for dipping
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil, and place a wire rack on top of each pan. Spray the racks with nonstick spray. Add eggs to one bowl, and in a larger bowl mix flour, panko, breadcrumbs, cheese, Cajun seasoning, chili powder, and pepper.
Bring water to a boil and cook ravioli for half of the recommended time. Drain and quickly spray through them with nonstick spray to help them not stick together. Once cool to the touch, dip each ravioli in eggs, then coat thoroughly with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Place on the wire rack and repeat until finished. Spray each with a quick hit of nonstick spray. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until crispy and golden. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Serve hot with marinara for dipping.
