I know what you're thinking--chocolate and cheese stuffed in ravioli? Trust me on this one! By combining bittersweet chocolate, cheese, and paprika, these ravioli have a sweet-spiciness to them that goes perfectly with a bright cherry tomato sauce. The flavors are reminiscent of a Mexican mole sauce-- a perfectly warming combination for the cooler months. Using wonton wrappers is an easy way to make these little pockets of goodness and allows for many hands to help in the kitchen. Make the filling ahead of time and then get the kids involved stuffing the wonton wrappers!

Ingredients

    For The Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 carrot (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 shallot (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Two 14-ounce cans cherry tomatoes
  • 2 sprigs fresh basil
  • One 4-inch Parmesan rind
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone
  • For The Ravioli:

  • Kosher salt
  • Olive oil (for drizzling)
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
  • 40 round wonton wrappers
  • 1 large egg (beaten)
  • Freshly grated Parmesan (for serving)

Instructions

  1. This recipe originally appeared on Giada Entertains: Jade's Chocolate Factory.

For the sauce:

  1. Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, carrot, shallot and salt. Cook, stirring often, until softened slightly, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, basil and Parmesan rind. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the mascarpone. Remove and discard the Parmesan rind. Use an immersion blender to pulse to the desired texture. Keep warm.

For the ravioli:

  1. Bring a large, shallow pot of water to a boil over high heat. Season well with salt and a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Combine the ricotta, mozzarella, chocolate, salt and paprika in a medium bowl. Stir together with a rubber spatula until smooth. Place a heaping teaspoon of the filling in the center of a wonton wrapper. Brush the edges with the egg wash and place another wrapper on top. Press the edges together, squeezing out any air bubbles form the center. Continue with the remaining filling and wrappers.
  3. Add the ravioli to the boiling water in batches and cook until they float, about 2 minutes. Remove the ravioli to a plate with a slotted spoon or a spider. Serve 5 ravioli on each plate and spoon the sauce over the top. Finish with freshly grated Parmesan, as desired.
