So today, I'm sharing tortellini-shaped ravioli made from wonton wrappers filled with creamy ricotta and salty, indulgent prosciutto. I serve it with wilted spinach and a delicious butter sauce for a quick supper. If your family loves pasta an if you've always wanted to try your hand at fresh ravioli, this is the recipe for you!
1 pack of wonton wrappers
1 small tub of ricotta
1 packet of prosciutto, diced
1 tbsp lemon pepper
1 tsp salt
zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup butter
cheese for serving
small bowl of water
In a small bowl, mix the ricotta, prosciutto, lemon pepper and lemon
Set aside while you prepare the wonton wrappers by lining two rows of 10 wrapper on the counter.
Using a small spoon, scoop of dollop of mix into the center of the wonton wrapper. Scoop filling into all 20 wrappers.
Dip your finger into the water and trace the edges of the wrapper.
Fold the bottom right corner to meet the top left corner, forming a triangle, using the water as glue to keep the sheets together. Finish all 20 wontons before moving on to the next step.
Pick up one wonton and rest the plump, filled center against the fingernail of your pinky finger, wrapping the ends around your pinky finger like a bandaid, forming a tortellini shape. Use another drop of water to bind the flaps, if ncessary.
Repeat as needed until all the filling is gone.
Boil the ravioli for no more than 5 minutes, taking care not to cause them to split. The water should be salted and only at a gentle boil to keep the ravioli in tact.
While the ravioli cooks, wilt some spinach in a skillet. Remove from the heat and add the butter to the same pan. Allow to melt to form a sauce. Add the spinach back to the pan, season with salt and pepper and serve with the ravioli and a sprinkling of cheese.
This recipe is so easy and delicious. It's versatile and if your family doesn't eat one ingredient, you can easily swap it for another.
