Place another wonton wrapper on top of filling, then press the edges together with a fork. Set aside. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers. NOTE: Michael likes to use a spray bottle to apply the water.
instructions Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop in the ravioli, quickly return to a boil, and cook until tender yet firm, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving the pasta water.
