Baked Wonton Ravioli Bites

These little gems make a great party appetizer but could also be paired with a salad for the main dish!!  Made with a combination of broccoli,  pesto, and cheeses, wrapped with wonton dough, and baked until golden brown.   The recipe was adapted slightly from this.  We will definitely be having a repeat of these in our household.
The Ingredients:  1 Tbs butter~2 Tbs olive oil~1/2 cup water~1 large head of broccoli~2-3 garlic cloves~1 package of wonton wrappers~1/2 cup of ricotta cheese~1/8 cup pesto~1/4 cup of fresh parmesan~cooking spray
First start by preheating the oven to 425° and spraying a cookie sheet with oil.  Warm the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet.  Chop broccoli into small pieces, and crush garlic cloves.
Put the garlic cloves in the skillet and sautee for about 30 seconds.  Add the broccoli plus the water and butter to the skillet ,turn down to low heat and cover for about 6 minutes.   While the broccoli is cooking lay individual wonton wrappers onto clean service.  
In a large mixing bowl place pesto & cheeses.
When the broccoli is done cooking, scoop it into the food processor until coarsely pureed, then add to the other ingredients and mix well.
 Spoon about a tablespoon into each wonton wrapper.  Dip a pastry brush in a bowl of water and brush along the edge of 2 sides of the wrapper.  Fold over corner edge and make triangle shape, push edges together to seal.  Set on baking sheet and sprinkle with a little cheese.
 If you run out of filling, just fill the wonton with some other yummy filling.  Today I just added some pizza sauce and cheese.
Some other ideas: Peanut butter & Jelly~ A few chocolate chips & peanut butter~a cheese mixture
Bake wonton’s for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve with pizza sauce or eat them alone!! Enjoy 🙂
