Basil Pea Ravioli

8:38 PM

  Sometimes you can make a delicious meal by whipping up things from your pantry and fridge, and not by going on a ingredient hunt to your grocery store. Ravioli's are such wonderful things that can be made with any stuffing or any sauce and always turns out very good as though made it from scratch. It would serve the purpose of being an inexpensive and a fancy meal for two !
I actually adopted this recipe from Martha Stewart, but made a little twist, like adding basil instead of mint .

Now to the recipe,



You Need:

20-30 wonton wrappers
1/4 cup shallot, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup green peas
3 tbs dry white wine ( optional )
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 stick unsalted butter
2 tbs olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
5-6 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

Method:

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add shallot; cook until translucent. Add garlic; cook intil soft.
Add peas, wine, half of the basil, 1/2 cup water, salt and pepper. Simmer until liquid has almost evaporated and peas are tender, about 12 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Puree pea mixture in a food processor. Brush edges of  the wrappers with egg. Place 1 tbs of puree in centers. Fold diagonally and seal the edges. Repeat with remaining wrappers and puree.

Cook ravioli in salted simmering water until they are soft and raise to the surface, about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat; add ravioli to the skillet, and cook untill butter is frothy and ravioli is coated, 2 to 3 minutes.

Sprinkle with basil. Serve immediately.

Notes:

Ravioli's can be shaped as you like, round, squares etc.

Fillings could also be your choice.

Instead of cooking ravioli in butter, tomato sauce can be substituted.
