Ingredients

FOR THE RAVIOLI

  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 cups frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 30 wonton wrappers

FOR THE MARINARA

  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 15 oz crushed tomatoes, 1 can
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper

Instructions

FOR THE RAVIOLI

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil to the pan.
  • Add garlic and let simmer 1 minute until garlic becomes fragrant, and then add the spinach.
  • Sauté the spinach and garlic for 2-3 minutes and season with salt and pepper.
  • Remove from the heat and let cook slightly.
  • In a large bowl, combine ricotta, Parmesan, and spinach, and mix well.
  • Whisk the egg in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Place wonton wrappers on a clean surface.
  • Place about 1/4 tsp. of the spinach filling in each corner of the wonton wrapper, creating four separate ravioli per wrapper.
  • Place another wonton wrapper on top of the bottom one and press around each spinach dollop, not allowing any air to be trapped under.
  • Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, carefully cut four ravioli out of each wonton wrapper.
  • Repeat the process until all ravioli are made.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Once water is boiling, drop 6-8 ravioli in at a time, and let them boil for about 3-4 minutes or until they float to the top (careful not to overcrowd the pot).
  • Remove that batch and continue to cook the rest of the ravioli.

FOR THE MARINARA

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook for 5-10 minutes, until onions become translucent.
  • Pour in tomatoes and season with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, and let cook for about 15 minutes.
  • Serve marinara over the cooked ravioli, or serve it alongside for dipping.
