Three Cheese Ravioli with Spinach Cream Sauce

I've always wanted to make ravioli @ home but making this from the scratch, even the thought, scared the hell out of me.. Seriously, it's a tedious task and moreover u need some specialised pasta cutters for that. It might not be a problem for those who owns the new Kitchen aid stand mixer.. Oh yeah, it's there.. U can just upgrade ..no probs. I don have any of these , So i's looking for mini pasta sheets. Then, one day, Tahemeem of  Not so Gourmet gave this idea of using wonton papers  and I's all set to make my fav Ravioli. Actually I got so many recipes when I browsed, but  kinda liked this one for it's simplicity and elegance... Njoy guys..




INGREDIENT LIST :

For Pasta :

Wonton wrappers -- half a pack

For the filling :

Shredded Mozarella Cheese -- 1/4 cup
Shredded Parmesan -- 1/4 cup

Method to make the filling :

In a mixing bowl add the parmesan, ricotta , mozarella ,minced garlic, a pinch of salt  and all the dry spices. Combine well to blend. Remove the wonton sheets from the cover and take a single sheet . Place a tsp of filling in the center leaving some edges on all the sides. Now dip ur finger in the water and dab / brush around the edges of the wonton sheet filled with filling. Fold the wonton sheets and seal the edge without letting any air to get inside.. ( else u  may place an another wonton / pasta on top of the filled wonton sheet and seal tightly so that no air is inside ..like in the pic ..) . Bring a large pot of salted water( add salt to the water ) to boil . Add oil also. Cook the ravioli until al dente, about 5 minutes . Serve in warmed bowls with Spinach Sauce ..

Cook the roux for 2 to 3 minutes or until fragnant ,light golden and creamy . Keep whisking ,do not stop doing it. Now add in the milk and the heavy cream and whisk it . Reduce the heat to medium low and cook the mixture until it starts to bubble . At this stage, the mixture will thickens. Add the pinach now and whisk until it completely wilts.
