Last week’s recipe involved fried cheese filled wontons.

If you prefer oil free recipes or want to use the wonton wrappers differently here is an alternative.

Cheese Ravioli in Tomato SauceTotal time: 20 mins
  • 5-6 wonton wrappers
  • 4 leafy parsley or basil stalks
  • ½ tbsp. cream cheese
  • ½ tbsp. ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup of Italian style tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp. chili flakes or chili paste
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Pluck the leaves from the parsley or basil stalks then chop the stalks finely.
  2. Mix the cheeses and stalks with the salt. I do this in the bowl I will serve in so that the remaining cheese gives a little creaminess tomato sauce.
  3. To make the ravioli place a teaspoonful of the cheese mixture in the centre of each of the wonton wrappers.
  4. Brush a little water around the edge of the wrappers then fold the wontons to form triangles and press the edges together.
  5. Pour the tomato sauce into a small skillet and heat it to simmering point.
  6. Grate the garlic into the sauce and stir in the salt and parsley or basil leaves.
  7. Place the ravioli into the sauce and poach them for one minute.
  8. Turn the ravioli so they are coated with the sauce and cook them for about another thirty seconds then serve.
