Sweet peas add a wonderful pop of flavor and texture to these great wonton pea and ricotta ravioli.
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup green peas
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano
Zest of 1 fresh lemon
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon Kosher or sea salt, to taste
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
About 40 wonton wrappers
Water, for sealing the wrappers
Tomato sauce, béchamel sauce, butter sauce, or other vegetable accompaniments (optional)
How to Make It
In a bowl combine the ricotta cheese, peas, egg, Parmigiano Reggiano, lemon zest, thyme, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Lay out about 6 wrappers. Scoop 1 tablespoon of filling into the center of each wrapper. Brush the edges with water. Lay a second wrapper on top of each ravioli. Press down the edges, sealing the raviolis as well as pressing out as much air as possible from the centers. If desired, cut the edges with a fluted cutter or roller.
Repeat process with remaining wrappers and filling.
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the raviolis in small batches for about one minute, or until they float to the top and the wrapper is tender. Remove from water with a slotted spoon and serve hot with desired sauce or other accompaniment.
