IngredientsIMG_5964.jpg

  • 1 1/2 cups Ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups (5 oz) packed fresh spinach, torn into pieces
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Zest of 1 small lemon
  • Pinch of salt & pepper
  • 1 12-oz package wonton wrappers (about 100 wrappers)

Directions:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place a colander containing the torn spinach safely on top of the pot. Using tongs, stir spinach until it is wilted and  lightly steamed. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
In a bowl, combine the ricotta, cooled spinach, egg and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.

IMG_5971-055646-edited.jpgLine a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Place a wonton wrapper on a clean work surface. Place roughly a teaspoon of ricotta filling in the center of the wonton. With your fingers, moisten the edges of the wrapper with water and place a second square evenly on top. Starting closest to the filling, press down the top wonton to release air and create a seal between the wrappers. Transfer the ravioli to a baking sheet or other surface while you repeat with the remaining wrappers.IMG_5976-983169-edited.jpg

*Tip: While you’re assembling ravioli, keep a damp paper towel covering the unused wrappers and over your assembled ravioli to prevent them from drying out.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, drop in the ravioli in two or three batches, allowing the water to return to a boil between each batch. Cook until the ravioli float to the surface, about 3 to 4 minutes per batch. Remove with a slotted spoon and allow to drain before transferring to a clean serving bowl. Top with our homemade, no-cook marinara sauce, or a simple olive oil drizzle.
