Ravioli with Herbed Goat Cheese Filling

Homemade ravioli are always a special treat. And, if you use wonton wrappers rather than homemade pasta, they require very little preparation. Here, ravioli are filled with tangy goat cheese that is seasoned with a generous quantity of fresh herbs and enhanced with your choice of either a fragrant broth or a light tomato sauce.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
10 oz. creamy goat cheese
Ingredient Line: 
1 large egg or equivalent egg substitute
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup plus 1 Tbs. chopped fresh chives
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. chopped fresh savory or thyme
Ingredient Line: 
1 clove garlic, minced
Ingredient Line: 
½ oz. wonton wrappers
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. butter
Ingredient Line: 
1 recipe Vegetable and Herb Broth or Fresh Tomato Sauce with Thyme
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions: 

  1. In medium bowl, beat goat cheese with electric mixer. Add egg and beat until smooth and creamy. (Alternatively, blend goat cheese and egg in food processor, then transfer to medium bowl.) Add 1/3 cup chives, parsley, savory, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste; mix thoroughly with a rubber spatula.
  2. Bring large, wide pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
  3. Lay about 12 wonton wrappers on clean work surface. Using pastry brush, moisten edges with water. Place a heaping teaspoonful of goat-cheese filling in center of each wrapper. Top each with another wonton wrapper, pressing down gently on filling to flatten slightly. Press wontons togetheraround mounds of filling. Using a 2-inch serrated round cutter, cut out circles, discarding trimmings. Set ravioli on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining wontons and filling. (Ravioli can be prepared ahead; cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.)
  4. In large skillet, bring Vegetable and Herb Broth or Fresh Tomato Sauce with Thyme to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low. Stir in butter and keep sauce warm. Drop half of ravioli into boiling water. Cook until ravioli are tender and float to the surface, about 2 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer ravioli to topping in skillet. Repeat with remaining ravioli.
  5. Divide ravioli and topping among warm deep pasta plates. Sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbs. chives and Parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve immediately.

Comments on this Recipe

I used about 5oz of goat cheese, added Parmesan, mozzarella and tomatoes and mushrooms. Amazing! Very light and airy!

Delicious dish, especially paired with the recommended tomato sauce. I mix the goat cheese filling by hand; gets soupy if you use a mixer/blender. My picky eater loves this recipe and whenever I ask "what would you like for dinner?" this is what my son requests. Be sure to give yourself enough time to assemble the ravioli; it is time consuming but worth it. You can do it a day in advance. Yum.

Also, regarding the sauce for the ravioli, I double the tomatoes and I use plum tomatoes, fresh, of course.

I am interested in making the Ravioli with Herbed Goat Cheese Filling, but what is Vegetable & Herb Broth? It's listed as one of the ingredients. Is this an already made broth I can buy at a normal grocery store or is this a homemade broth? Is it the same as Vegetable Broth that is usually with the Chicken or beef broths at the store?
