Green Alien Ravioli
Young chefs can help put together these ravioli; if you have leftover filling, you can use it as a pasta sauce later in the week!
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 onion
- 1 bag shelled frozen edamame (16 ounces), thawed, divided
- 1 cup heavy cream, divided
- Salt and pepper
- 3 dozen 2 1/2-inch round gyoza or wonton wrappers
- 1/3 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
- In a 12-inch skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the edamame and cook for 3 minutes. Reserve 1 cup of the edamame; add the remainder to a food processor and puree with 1/4 cup cream, 1/4 cup water and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Reserve the skillet.
- Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Place the wrappers on a work surface and center a tablespoon of edamame mixture on each. Dampen the perimeter of a wrapper, fold into a half-moon shape and pinch the edge to seal. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining wrappers. Add to the ravioli to the boiling water and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in the reserved skillet, combine the reserved edamame, the remaining 3/4 cup cream and 1/4 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Add 1/3 cup of the ravioli cooking water and 1/3 cup parmesan; stir until the cheese is melted. With a slotted spoon, transfer the ravioli to the skillet; turn to coat in the sauce.
- Divide among four bowls and sprinkle with more parmesan.
