This is YUMMY!!! I've done aot of cooking but I had never cooked anything like this before last night. I've been trying to find new recipes because my wife has gone on a diet for obvious reasons and I've been trying to cook something all 4 of us like. Well, this is one. I'm not a big fan of a dish like this, I like my beef and ribs and chili but I'll tell you, I was hoping to have some left for lunch today but there was NOTHING. I don't think it really matters but I used fat free mozzarella instead and about half of the nutmeg, the next time I will use the full amount of nutmeg called for in the recipe. I've used nutmeg before in recipes of my own and know too much can make or break a dish so i opted to use less this time. For the tomato sauce I used Prego Heart Smart Traditional. I did not have any of the raviolis "leak" the filling. The only trouble I had was fitting a rounded teaspoon of filling in the wrapper so I just used less, no biggie If you put this recipe together yourself, you did a fine job. It is truly super simple and tasty. Keep up the good work. What time is supper? I made this again last night 2/11/09, with a twist. My daughter had an idea to make this heartier. I got some sundried tomato and basil chicken sausage and removed it from the casing and sauteed it, then added it to the tomato sauce before pouring it over the ravioli. Delicious!!! Instead of folding the filling in the wrappers, I put the filling on one wrapper and covered with another then cut them round with a samall round biscuit cutter then crimped the edges. You use more wrappers but you end up with bigger ravioli---personal prefernce I guess.
Very easy meal and tasted great. I had no problem with the filling coming out when they boiled. I used jarred spaghetti sauce with italian sausage instead of the sauce in the recipe. I noticed that garlic was in the ingredient list, but didn't list where it went (I assume with the sauce.) Since I had roasted garlic spaghetti sauce, I left it out. Oh, I did sub dried basil and added a little bit of oregano to the filling and I left out the nutmeg. Thanks so much for posting this; great way to use up the extra wonton wrappers!
Yummy. I've never had ravioli before so I didn't really have anything to compare. Still, very yummy and quick and I felt special trying to cook wonton wrappers for the first time :)
