Ingredients:
  • (Sauce)
  • 1 Stick Butter
  • Dried Oregano To Taste
  • Pinch of Dried Basil
  • (Filling)
  • 3 oz Prosciutto (Italian Ham) Chopped
  • 16 oz Ricotta Cheese (Drain off any liquid)
  • 2 Egg yolks (not the white)
  • 1 Package frozen Spinach Cooked and all water squeezed out.
  • (Dough)
  • Buy 1 Package Won Ton Wraps (usually in with the vegatables in the store). I would buy 2 packages Just in case. One will make about 15 Ravioli. You need two per raviola.
  • Steps:
  • 1. Mix Egg yolks with fork.
  • 2. Add Egg yolks to Ricotta Cheese and mix.
  • 3. Add in Chopped Prosciutto and mix
  • 4. Add Koshar salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 5. Mix well, cover and put in Fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • 6. Boil 2 quarts water salted and some olive oil added.
  • 7. Take Won Ton wrap, brush all sides with water about 1/2 inch, put one TBLS filling on top in middle, place another Won Ton wrap over it and seal the edge with fingers.
  • 8. Poke hole with tooth pick in top of Ravioli.
  • 9. Place carefully in boiling water (Cook about 5 at a time, maybe six). Stir carefully so they are not on bottom. When Ravioli comes to top they are done. It only take about 2 minutes. DO NOT OVER COOK.
  • 10. Remove Ravoli with slotted spatula and place on waxed/parchment paper or some non stick surface. You can at this point put them all on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and Freeze them for Later use. Once Froze seal in plastic bag.
  • 11. If your going to use Ravoli right away then make the Sauce. Put stick of butter in frying pan, add Basil and oregano and stir till all melted.
  • 12. Pour over Ravioli and add Parmesan Cheese.
  • 12. If you run out of Butter Sauce just make some more.
  • 13. Spice to your liking. Serve on long plate.
