A Rustic Rendition of Shrimp Ravioli with Sun-Dried Tomatoes Salsa

Love Shrimp Ravioli

I love pasta, all kind, but something about ravioli that makes my heart skips a beat.

A plate of heart-felt ravioli.

Now, homemade dough is absolutely admirable but that’s not for me as it’s time-consuming to knead, roll, fill and cut.

Wonton wrappers come to my rescue. A perfectly inexpensive substitute, no mess, and the next best thing to whip up ravioli in less than 30 minutes.

Perfect for Valentine, Birthday, and any kind of romantic and lovely celebration and entertainment.

  9. That’s too pretty to eat. Plus, I’d feel unromantic if I spoiled the hearts. Then I’d get really hungry and grumpy. Very nice, however.
