Goat Cheese, Spinach & Walnut Ravioli



Today I made homemade ravioli using wonton wrappers. Often times ravioli is made with rolled out pasta dough, however I have found that wonton wrappers made of flour, egg, water and salt work just as well. Wonton wrappers are pre-cut into the perfect size and taste great. I used spinach, toasted walnuts, basil, goat cheese and garlic to fill my ravioli. I made a simple sauce to compliment the ravioli filling using cream, basil, garlic and butter. This dish is super easy and delicious. I highly recommend you try my recipe below!

Spinach, Walnut and Goat Cheese Ravioli
1 package square wonton wrappers
1 egg, whisked 
Filling: 
1 package frozen spinach, thawed and water removed
1 cup goat cheese
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts 
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 cup minced basil 
2 tsp olive oil 
Pinch salt, pepper and onion powder
Sauce:
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup minced basil
1 tbsp minced garlic 
1/2 cup cream 
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt and pepper 

Boil water in large soup pot. To prepare filling, combine all filling ingredients in bowl and mix well. For sauce, melt butter in large skillet over medium heat, add garlic, basil until melted. Add cream, cinnamon, salt and pepper and set aside. On a large surface, place 1 layer wonton wrapper down and add 1 tbsp filling to the middle of the wrapper. Brush edges of wontons with egg wash, and place a second wonton wrapper on top and press together with your fingers to ensure wrappers are tight together. Boil raviolis in three batches. Raviolis cook in about 2-3 minutes. Drain ravioli and add to sauce mixture. Reheat sauce and combine gently with ravioli and serve!
