  • Preparation Time30 mins
  • Cooking Time15 mins
  • Serves6
  • DifficultyMedium
1 (425g) container whole milk ricotta cheese
1 (280g) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
110g thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped
2 large egg yolks
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
48 wonton wrappers
110g butter
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
Freshly grated pecorino
1) The ravioli can be prepared up to two hours ahead; cover and refrigerate after making. Whisk the ricotta, spinach, prosciutto, egg yolks, salt and pepper in a medium bowl to blend.

2) Place one tablespoon of the ricotta filling in the centre of a wonton wrapper. Brush the edge of the wrapper lightly with water. Fold the wrapper in half, enclosing the filling completely and forming a triangle. Pinch the edges to seal. Transfer the ravioli to a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.

3) Working in batches, cook the ravioli in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until just tender, stirring occasionally, about four minutes per batch. Transfer the cooked ravioli to a large shallow bowl.

4) Melt the butter in a heavy small frying pan over a medium heat. Add the oregano and stir for one minute. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and pour over the ravioli. Toss gently to coat; sprinkle the pecorino over the ravioli and serve.
