Homemade Heart Shaped Ravioli

Since I wasn't blogging last year, I feel now is the perfect time to finally share this special meal.  Valentines Day is approaching and I'm in need of a Special Meal to make my boyfriend.  It's going to be very difficult to top last year's Homemade Heart Shaped Ravioli, but I'm determined to figure out something.
Homemade Heart Shaped Ravioli
Serves 4
  • 1 package Nasoya's Won Ton wrappers
  • 2 cups part  skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 t sugar
  • 2 T Mrs. Dash Italian seasoning
  • 2 egg whites or 1 cup water
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 cups Homemade Pasta Sauce
  1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, and Italian seasoning; set aside 
  2. Lay the wonton wrappers out onto a dry surface
  3. Using a hear shaped cookie cutter, cut the wonton wrappers into hear shapes 
  4. Then place 1-2 T of the cheese filling onto half of the wontons; adjust the amount depending on how large your hears are
  5. To seal the ravioli closed, get a small bowl of water or egg whites
  6. Using your finger or a small pastry brush, brush the edges of the ravioli with the liquid
  7. Place a non-filled wonton wrapper on top of the filled wrapper and gently run your fingers over the seam to seal it shut
  8. Repeat the process until all of the wrappers and filling have been used
  9. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and season lightly with olive oil to reduce the ravioli from sticking together
  10. Once the water is boiling, reduce it to medium-low
  11. Working in batches of 7-10, place the ravioli into the water
  12. Allow it to cook until the ravioli begin to float to the surface
  13. Once cooked, transfer to individual places and garnish with sauce and additional cheese and parsley
