Easy Homemade Ravioli
- 1 Cup Barbacoa Beef Pot Roast, shredded
- 1/2 Cup Mozzarella
- 24 Wonton Wrappers
- Sauce from Barbacoa Beef Pot Roast(contents of package)
- 1 Cup Crushed Tomatoes in Tomato Sauce
- 2-3 TBSP Tomato Paste
- 1 Clove Garlic, finely minced
- 1/2 TSP Crushed Red Pepper
- 1-2 TBSP Onion, finely minced
- 4 TBSP Queso Fresco, crumbled
- 2 TSP Cilantro, finely minced
Heat the Barbacoa Pot Roast according to directions on package. Measure out 1 cup of the beef and shred. (Save remaining meat for another use.) Drain sauce from package into a medium pot. Add 1 cup crushed tomatoes in tomato sauce and 2-3 TBSP tomato paste. Mix thoroughly until the tomato paste dissolves. Add onion, garlic and crushed red pepper. Mix and simmer over low-medium heat for about 10 minutes, then set aside. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil over high heat.
Lay out 12 wonton wrappers on a sheet of parchment or wax paper. Add 1 tsp of beef in the center of each wonton wrapper. Top with a small pinch of shredded mozzarella. Using a small pastry brush or your finger, dip in water and lightly moisten the edges of each square, one at a time. Place another wonton wrapper on top and press the edges together. You can also use a fork to press the edges for a more decorative look (optional). Repeat until all 12 raviolis are sealed.
Gently place raviolis in the boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes. Carefully drain and remove from pot. Serve 3 per person and spoon the sauce over the top. Add crumbled Queso Fresco and minced cilantro over the sauce.
There are so many options for filling your raviolis. You can tailor it to what you and your family likes with various, meats, vegetables and cheeses. The possibilities are endless! The wonton wrappers are so easy to use and so inexpensive! I paid about $1.70 for a package of 60. My youngest helped me to seal the raviolis and she can’t wait to create her own filling next time!
