This delicious recipe for shrimp scampi ravioli captures all the flavors of a scampi, in a cute little package!

The thought of making ravioli is daunting to many, including myself.  Making pasta at home…who has time for that?! I know I don’t on most weekdays, and I’d rather spend my weekends enjoying the outdoors than covering myself and my kitchen in flour making pasta.  However, I’m a sucker for delicious ravioli, so where’s the happy medium? Use wonton wrappers! They’re a perfect pasta substitute, and come ready to be filled with delicious things, like my creamy shrimp scampi ricotta filling.  I blend creamy ricotta cheese with lemon zest, garlic, parsley and shrimp for a filling that’s so good, you can just eat it with a spoon (not that I know anything about that…) Now, let’s make these shrimp scampi ravioli!

ingredients

1 package large wonton wrappers
8 ounces cooked shrimp
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water
Flour, for dusting

directions

First, let’s make the filling.  Saute the minced garlic in 2 teaspoons of olive oil, until it’s just starting to turn golden. Set aside to cool.

Chop the shrimp into small pieces, and place into a bowl.

Place one wonton wrapper on a flat surface, then brush the wrapper with a bit of egg wash.  You don’t to douse it, just moisten to top so that the ravioli will seal.

Place 1 tablespoon of filling into the center of the ravioli.

Cover the filling with another wonton wrapper, making sure to push out any air pockets.

Finally, seal the ravioli by using a ravioli stamper, or cookie cutter.

If you don’t have cookie cutters, you can make this triangle variation, by folding the wonton in half diagonally.  Make sure to seal the edges tightly by pressing down firmly along the edges.

Place the shrimp scampi ravioli onto a floured sheet pan, then stick them into the freezer, until firm.  You can store them in a plastic food storage bag for future use.

When you’re ready to cook these up, bring a pot of water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.  Gently place the frozen ravioli into the simmering water, and cook for 3-4 minutes, until pasta is cooked.

I like serving these with a simple jarred vodka sauce.  You can also serve these with marinara or Alfredo sauce.

    Can you bake or fry these raviolis? I tried boiling them and they got really soggy on me. But the filling was delicious

    1. Hi Meagan, since the wonton skins are so thin, it’s really easy to overcook them. I would definitely try steaming them vs boiling, and I think if you coated them with flour, egg and breadcrumbs, they would be delicious fried!
