I love all kinds of pasta and I love Crab. Together they are a winning combination. Add a salad, roll, glass of wine and Mama Mia you have a wonderful, tasty dinner.
- 1 cup Ricotta cheese
- 1 cup lump crabmeat
- coarse salt and pepper
- pinch of red pepper flakes
- 2 pkg. wonton wrappers (90 pieces required)
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
Mix together the ricotta, crabneat, pinch of salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
Lightly flour a baking sheet and arrange 45 wrappers on a work surface. Keep the remaining 45 wrappers under a damp towel so they won’t dry out. Mound 1 tsp. of the crabmeat in the center. Brush the edges with eggwash and put the remaining wrappers on top. Press the edges to seal. Cut out the circles with a 2 1/4 inch cookie cutter.
Bring a large pot of water to the boil and add a few of ravioli at a time, cooking until they rise to the top (about 3 minutes).
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 2 tsp. lemon zest
- 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Melt 4 tbsp. of butter in a skillet. Add the ravioli as well as 2 tbsp. of the boiling water. Add the lemon zest and peel and stir to cover.
Serve with a salad, roll and a glass of Chardonnay – well chilled, of course.
