Lazy Girl Ravioli

Every time I read about making homemade ravioli the 'Lazy Girl' in me comes out and all I can think about is how much rolling it would take to get the pasta dough thin enough.  Now don't get me wrong, I love my rolling pin and cringe anytime I have to use anyone else's, but I'm not sure I want to spend an entire afternoon with it.  'Lazy Girl' pasta substitution - wonton wrappers. 

I had some really nice, creamy homemade ricotta cheese and good quality parmesan cheese that I mixed together with an egg and some Italian seasoning.  And for a salty punch I crisped and chopped up some prosciutto.

And because a little of this filling goes a long way, I ended up making a million of these little guys. 

Luckily they freeze really well!

I've always wanted to make my own pasta, but my laziness wins every time. Some day though!

These look so delicious! :) I love pretty much all ravioli. I keep trying to find out if I have any Italian in my heritage, and so far I can't find any.
Mom has a pasta maker/roller thingy... it helps her to make some amazing noodles. You may or may not have inspired me to ask to borrow that contraption!!

Oh, the "contraption" is definitely on my to purchase list! :)
Let me know how it goes, Sara.
Robin, I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets 'the lazies' sometimes!
