Forget About Homemade Pasta Dough, Use This Hack to Make Ravioli at Home!

Who knew the secret to making ravioli was wonton wrappers? Make homemade ravioli at home with these wonton wrappers.


  • 1 package of wonton or gyoza wrappers
  • 1 egg white 
  • 2 cups of ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, freshly grated if possible
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • All-purpose flour for dusting 


  1. Lightly flour the surface where you intend on assembling the ravioli, but be more heavy-handed with the flouring in the place where you’ll be putting the finished ravioli so they don’t dry out while you continue to make the whole batch. 
  2. If the ricotta cheese seems wet, drain it in the sink with a cheesecloth, then put it into a medium-sized bowl. 
  3. To the ricotta, add the nutmeg, lemon zest, and salt and pepper to your taste. Feel free to add in other ingredients, this is simply the base. 
  4. Beat the egg white for 20-30 seconds in a small bowl. 
  5. Take the wrappers and fill them with 1 teaspoon of the filling, then, lightly brush the edges of the wrapper with the egg white. This will create a seal when you put the second wonton wrapper on top of it. 
  6. At this point, if you want to cut out any shapes out of the ravioli, now is the time. You can also leave it square. 
  7. Bring a pot of water to a boil, salt it, and cook the ravioli for 3-4 minutes. 
  8. Serve with any sauce you like and enjoy!
