Want to make God laugh?  Tell Him your plans.  Who hasn’t stared out down one path only to end up in a slightly different locale from where they had planned?  This seems like a pretty common experience in life and sometimes in the kitchen as well.  Happily our final destination for last night’s dinner was at a pretty good place, our kitchen table with this Sausage and Ricotta Ravioli sitting directly in front of us.

About this recipe

featuring sweet sausage and ricotta cheese

A week or so ago a colleague of mine mentioned her plans to make ravioli, using wonton wrappers.  Although I’ve enjoyed my share of foods made from these papery little wrappers, I have never actually used them myself.  In fact, I had never even purchased them before yesterday at my local grocer where I found them in the refrigerated cases with the herbs and greens.

I had some sweet sausage that needed to be used, along with some marinara that I had put together this weekend at the cottage.  My plan was to use these along with some other savories, wrap it all up in the wonton wrappers and feed the boys –  and then make a light dinner for the dads.

In very short order, I came to the realization that as long as I’m able to draw breath and I have a mixture of ricotta cheese and sweet sausage in front of me, I will be partaking of no alternative dish.

With virtually no further thought on that matter, I came to the conclusion that this is a decision I can live with,  happily.   I also learned about the wonders of wonton wrappers.  This dish was put together in 15 minutes – the time it takes to boil water and brown some sausage.  The kids loved it, the dads loved it, and there will be more of its kind down the road, on our table, and on Platter Talk.
