I never thought that I would be a person who makes homemade ravioli, but with these cheats… I am!
To be honest, it isn’t completely homemade, because you use packaged wonton wrappers. I know packaged wonton wrappers aren’t exactly sheets of homemade pasta, but they work great and you will feel super fancy after making them!!
Here is how you do it:
1 package of mushrooms
2 big cloves of garlic
1/4 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese
9-10 wonton wrappers (8 inch)
Salt and Pepper
Clean the mushrooms.
Add to your chopper. I only have a mini chop, so I cut each mushroom in quarters and added them to the mini chop in batches. Be careful not to overdo it.
This is the final product.
Chop up the garlic.
Add to a saucepan with a little bit of olive oil. (You don’t need a lot, because the mushrooms have so much moisture themselves.) Saute over low to medium heat.
The moisture will start to cook out.
After a few minutes, pick up some of this mushroom mixture with a slotted spoon. Press the back of another spoon against the slotted spoon to press out the extra moisture.
Once the water is all pressed out, add each spoonful to a new bowl.
Mix in the cheese. Confession: I didn’t measure the amount of cheese that I put in! I am assuming it is a little less than 1/4 cup, but you can alter it however you like.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Now get your wonton wrappers out! I cut each wrapper down the middle.
Get a cup of water and keep it nearby.
Wet the whole perimeter of the wrapper.
You should also wet the middle, right where you will be folding it over.
Put a spoonful of mushroom filling on one side.
Fold the wonton wrapper over so the edges line up and press them together.
Then, press each side together. Finally, press the folded edge down, so that now all sides are firmly set.
If it doesn’t feel secure, you can add a bit more water.
And voila! A ravioli!!
Repeat until you have all of these!!
(I kept about 7 out for dinner, and froze the rest.)
Cook the ravioli in water that is gently boiling. Gentle is key! Do not put them in rumbling water. It could break them.
This is what your plate will look like!
I added a simple tomato sauce on top.
