Won Ton Ravioli

I have a great recipe for (pumpkin and spinach) won ton ravioli, and I've been thinking a lot about what else you could stuff them with.

I've done one thing where you put a slice of banana followed by some brown sugar, and then fry them up in butter...mmmmmmmmmm

but any other suggestions?
thx!

You can use won ton wrappers to make any kind of ravioli. They tend to be thinner/lighter than regular rav dough. Any of the trafitional Italian fillings or others such as duck confit, mushrooms...

You could also make dessert ravs using mxtures that include nutella, nuts peanut butter, fruits and jams...

I second what Andy says. Won tons are great as ravioli wrappers for any dish, savory or sweet.

I posted a recipe under Pasta for crab and cream cheese won tons & cheese filled ravioli with fresh tomato sauce; anothe was for fake-out Pierogies.

I would post the links, but they seem to be going back to the main forum page. Try a search here, & would like to know if you give them a try.

Squash and potatoes:

Butternut squash & potato tortelli

Not a ravioli, but I'm playing around w an appy idea for a whole shrimp wrapped in a won ton skin and fried.

Does anyone else have a problem with the ravioli opening up during the cooking?

mushrooms,goat cheese, and spinach
or
spinach and feta cheese

Usally if they open up on me it is because I didn't make sure they were sealed well enough or they are cooking to long

To keep ravs from opening up, do two things:

1. make sure there is no air trapped in with the filling. This will expand when heated and blow out the rav. Press the top layer of dough onto the filling starting in the middle and work toward the edges.

2. Brush egg or water onto the sealing edges before sealing, it acts as a glue.
