This dish is deceptively simple yet sophisticated and elegant. Wow your guests with “homemade pasta,” but don’t let on that you made the whole thing for less than $12. Just smile and graciously accept their compliments.

Ingredients

  • 30 small square wonton wrappers $3
  • 1/2 cup ricotta $4 for 12 oz.
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen green peas, thawed $1.50 for a 10 oz. bag
  • 1 small bunch fresh mint, plus more for garnish $1
  • 3 tbsp butter $1 for a stick
  • 3 scallions, sliced $1
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 2

Directions

  1. Combine ricotta, peas, mint, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor (or mash well with a fork).
  2. Lay a wonton wrapper on a clean, dry surface. Dip a finger or pastry brush into a little water and brush the edges of the wrapper with water. Place about 1 1/2 tbsp of the pea-ricotta mixture in the middle of the wrapper. Cover with a second wrapper and press the edges together to seal tightly. Repeat until all the filling is used up (using additional wrappers if necessary).
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to a light boil. Drop the raviolis, a few at a time, into the hot water and boil for 1-2 minutes or until they float. Fish them out with a slotted spoon and transfer immediately onto plates.
  4. To make the sauce, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the scallions and cook for 2-3 minutes or until they wilt slightly.
  5. To serve, divide the butter mixture between the 2 plates of ravioli. Garnish with fresh mint, salt and and pepper.
