Makes 4 servings
1/4 cup finely chopped shallot
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup pumpkin from the tin
1/4 cup finely chopped Parmesan
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Bought 2 tablespoons of basil pesto
2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh basil leaves
How to do it
- Cook the shallot and garlic in 1 tablespoon of olive oil over a period of about 3 minutes or until the shallot is tender. Put in a small bowl. Stir in pumpkin, 1/4 Parmesan, salt and pepper.
- For each ravioli, place 1 tablespoon of pumpkin filling in the middle of a wonton wrap. Brush the edges with water. Fold a corner over the fill to hit the opposite corner and form triangles. Press around the filling to squeeze out air. Close edges tightly. Cover the ravioli with a dry kitchen towel while filling the remaining wrappers.
- Heat half of the remaining oil in a large pan at medium to high temperature. Arrange half of the ravioli in the pan so that they do not touch and point the tips upwards. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the bottom is golden brown. Carefully add 2 tablespoons of water, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until the wraps are tender and translucent. Place on a baking tray and keep warm in a 200 ° F oven. Repeat with remaining oil and ravioli.
- Stir in a small bowl of pesto and 1 tablespoon of water. To serve, sprinkle ravioli with pesto mixture and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese. Garnish with basil.
