asian inspired ravioli

i decided to make ravioli tonight which is kinda weird because i am not the biggest fan of italian food. but since i'm on strike from asian food, i figured why not. it's funny tho, i used wonton wrappers to make them, which is very asian. go figure.

simple directions/recipe: put ricotta cheese, thawed frozen wilted spinach, prosciutto and shredded carrots in a mixing bowl.

add two egg yolks to bind together. salt and pepper to taste. using single wonton wrappers, put about a teaspoon worth of the mixture in the middle. you can either make them into triangles or fold over. i made the latter. use water to seal the edges together.

cook the wontons/ravioli in salted water till tender, about 4 minutes. transfer to plate. garnish with chopped green onions. for the sauce, i melted butter and added a dash of nutmeg and garlic. for about six raviolis, i poured maybe half a teaspoon of the sauce and it was just right.

i used up the entire wonton wrapper package and there was plenty of mixture leftover. i only cooked up a batch for dinner and for lunch tomorrow. the rest and the leftover mixture, i put in containers and put in the freezer. i'm pretty excited because i now have some crazy amounts of frozen raviolis i can heat up quickly for the evenings i don't feel like cooking.

  1. omg, looks tres scrumptious! and i would think that using won ton wrappers would make it a lighter dish...not leave you with a heavy feeling that pasta sometimes does.
