Making ravioli from scratch can be difficult, so I’m bringing you an easy meatless recipe for sweet pea ricotta ravioli, made with wonton wrappers!
For some reason over the years I have developed a Cooking Bucket List of things I was either too afraid to make or knew I would fail at making. I know this sounds odd, but maybe you have a list of things you would do if you could. I have one I like to call I Have 6 Months to Live, so I am Going to Do:
I know it’s sick, but you do these things when words like tumor and radiation enter your life. You make lists, then you kick yourself for not doing more. But I’ll move on, this is a story for another post ????
Back to the cooking. I love ravioli. I mean LOVE it! I like the tiny little pillows with a secret inside, waiting to be found. I have had many kinds of ravioli and really have never had one I didn’t like. I have even had a dessert ravioli. Baked, boiled, fried, or sauteed…you can’t go wrong.
So when I found fresh shelled sweet peas at Meijer the other day, inspiration struck me. My first thought, making pesto with them, serving it over linguine with a dollop of fresh ricotta. Then, as I walked around the store, another idea formed. Sweet Pea Ravioli!
The sweet pea ravioli are pretty simple to put together, but they are time consuming, so it is best to get a little help.
My pictures really don’t do them justice. They look like funny little triangles, but let me assure you they are awesome. I served them on a plate with garlic infused olive oil and lemon zest, but whatever you choose to top them with will work. Like most everything I make, there is always an open door for modifications. ????
A note here. I bought all of the ingredients at Meijer. The wonton wrappers were $2, the ricotta was on sale for $1.67, and the peas were $2.50. Do the math – you will never get this at a restaurant for the price of making them yourself!
