  1. In a bowl mix together ricotta cheese, rosemary, thyme, nutmeg, and salt.
  2. Sprinkle a layer of flour on a work surface. Working in batches, place wonton wrappers in a row. Spoon 1 tablespoon of filling on each wrapper. Brush around the filling with water. Top with another wrapper. Press the wrappers together around the filling, removing the air and sealing them. Using a medium circle cookie cutter, cut out each raviolo. Using a fork, crimp the edges to seal. Place on a lightly floured baking sheet and place in the freezer. Repeat this for all of the wontons.
  3. Boil a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the frozen ravioli and cook for about 4 minutes.
  4. Drain and toss with warm marinara sauce or another pasta sauce.

Chef Tips

You will need a good 50 wonton wrappers to use up all the filling in this recipe. Although wonton wrappers are very thin, and there are around 50 wrappers in each 12 ounce pack, it varies by brans. If you have doubts, buy 2 packs. Any extra wrappers  won’t go to waste. They freeze really well if well sealed.
