Christmas RavioliPosted: December 23, 2010
Every year for as long as i can remember we have had Ravioli’s as the first course in our christmas meal. The spinach and cheese are my favorite!!! So since i hosted my husband’s family for christmas i knew i had to make ravioli’s for them as well. Since i don’t have the pasta maker attachment for my mixer yet and didn’t know how well a rolling pin would work I decided to try my grandmas short cut of using wonton wrappers. They worked out pretty well so i wanted to share the recipe with you all….
1 pckg of Wonton wrapers
1 16oz ricotta cheese
1 pachage chopped spinach or ground meat if desired.
dash of salt
dash of nutmeg
1/4 cup gratted parmessan cheese
Mix your filling:
Mixx together ricotta, egg, nutmeg, salt, and gradding cheese in a bowl or electric mixer. Add spinach or meat as desired.
Put together your ravioli:
I made mine into triangles so what i did was used a 1/4 tablespoon measuring spoon and scooped some filling into the center of the wonton square i then folded it into a triangle and pressed the sides with a wet finger to seal it up. Reapeat until your either done or have desired amount.
Cook your ravioli:
Cook in boiling water just as you would any other pasta for just a few minutes. Beware that the wontoon wraper is very thin so makesure your pasta is large enough for the amount of ravioli’s you have and don’t let them sit to long before boiling or they may stick and start to fall apart in your water. (although they taste just as good)
Serve with your favorite sauce and enjoy!
