My husband is just waiting to dig into his dinner!

I had some wonton wrappers to use up. I was going to use them for easy make ravioli. This recipe I found had the great idea of using them to make raviolis. This would have been nice if I could get them to stick. I tried wetting them too. Maybe they just weren't fresh enough. I decided I'd use them as a cup for some kind of filling. The light bulb went off. (I love those moments).

Spinach Ricotta Cups

1 cup ricotta
1 egg
2 cups chopped cooked spinach
pinch of nutmeg
s and p
romano or parmesan
wonton wrappers

Combine all ingredients except cheese and wrappers. Press wrappers into mini muffin tins. Fill cups nearly full with mixture and sprinkle some parmesan on top. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. When wrappers brown on edges they are done.

great idea! i'll have to remember these for my next party - so perfect for hors d'oeuvers, and you could fill 'em with anything!

I've done this too... For us, it's an old family recipe that fills wonton skins with SAUSAGE!
