How to Make Homemade Ravioli with Wontons

Raviolo (plural: Ravioli) is an Italian recipe consisting of stuffed pasta, which is served either in clear broth or with pasta sauce. A traditional Raviolo consists of a filling (meat, vegetable or seafood) sealed between two layers of a thin, square shaped pasta dough. Chinese wonton wrappers make a perfect substitute for fresh egg pasta when making homemade ravioli. You can easily find wonton wrappers in the produce department of your local grocery store, near the tofu counter.
