Prosciutto Ravioli With Browned Sage Butter
  • For ravioli:
  • 1 1/2 cup (12 oz) 2% Ricotta cheese, plus more for garnish
  • 2 slices prosciutto
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • black pepper, a few grinds
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup egg beater (or 1 egg)
  • 36 won ton wrappers
  • For Browned Sage Butter Sauce:
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp sage, dried
  1. Bring salted water to a boil in a large pot.
  2. Combine ricotta cheese, coarsley chopped prosciutto, salt, and parsley in a food processor. While the filling is processing, slowly add the egg. Mixture will be quite stiff.
  3. Place a won ton wrapper on your work surface and add a 2 tsp of filling to the center. Moisten the edges of the wonton with water and fold over into a triangle. Remove as much air from the ravioli as possible and press the edges firmly to seal. (I went over the edges with the tines of a fork to prevent leaks).
  4. Add the ravioli to salted boiling water, and cook for approximately 4 minutes, or until the ravioli are floating.
  5. While the ravioli are cooking, melt the butter over medium heat and cook for 3-4 minutes. Once you notice the first hint of browning, shake the pan once or twice. Add sage and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and use immediately.
  6. Drain ravioli into a colander, toss with browned sage butter, and serve. Garnish with fresh ricotta, if desired. Makes two entrees (or four sides).
