Tips on Making Spinach Ricotta Ravioli with Mushrooms
You will definitely love this spinach and ricotta ravioli even more when you know what else you can do to make this dish desirable to your palate. Here are some helpful tips to perfect this easy spinach and mushroom ravioli recipe:
- Use your extra spinach-ricotta filling in other dishes. There’s no need to discard your leftover ravioli filling because you can also use it as a filling for calzone, rolls, or even dumplings. This mixture is also great as an additional layer to your favorite vegetable lasagna. Lastly, you can dilute your spinach-ricotta mixture in water, milk, or cream and make a creamy sauce for your pasta.
- You can substitute spinach with other leafy vegetables. You can replace it with kale or Swiss chard for your ravioli fillings. Kale has a stronger and more bitter flavor than spinach while Swiss chard has a milder taste. Feel free to use whatever suits your taste.
- Make this dish vegan and dairy-free by using vegan cheese which can be bought in grocery stores. For the egg wash, use water instead to close the wonton wrappers
- Add a savory meaty flavor to your filling by mixing in at least 2 tablespoons of chopped cooked prosciutto or pancetta.
