Prosciutto Ravioli

I made these the other night. They were delicious and a do-again for sure.

Ravioli plated

Let's get mixing and eating.

Ravioli drain spinach

Gathered the ingredients and drained the spinach that I placed in cheesecloth. Dang, there is a-lot-of-liquid in spinach. I probably should have made a healthy drink or something with the liquid...naw.

Ravioli mix

I mixed up some prosciutto, egg yolks, spinach and ricotta cheese.

Ravioli enclose

Put a scant teaspoon of filling into a wonton wrapper, brushed the edges with water then folded over and sealed closed.

Ravioli boil

Gently placed into rolling boiling water, just a few at a time so the water won't lose it's boil.

Ravioli butter

As the ravioli were boiling I melted some butter in a skillet and added Greek oregano. Then I swished the cooked ravioli around in the oregano butter.

Ravioli plated

Plated and dove in. Didn't even stop for a salad.

Thanks Giada for a great dinner.

Prosciutto Ravioli

1 (15-ounce) container whole milk ricotta cheese
1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
48 wonton wrappers
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

the edges to seal. Transfer the ravioli to baking sheets. Repeat with the
remaining filling and wrappers. (Can be prepared up to 2 hours ahead; cover
and refrigerate.)

Melt the butter in a heavy small skillet over medium heat. Add the oregano
and stir 1 minute. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Remove from the

Working in batches, cook the ravioli in a large pot of boiling salted water
until just tender, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes per batch.
Transfer the ravioli to a large shallow bowl.

Pour the oregano butter over the ravioli and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle
the pecorino over the ravioli and serve.
