Beet and Sweet Potato Ravioli

People usually associate beets with salads — but not me. Because of their healthy reputation and sweet buttery flavor, and I always try to think of the most indulgent ways to enjoy them. This ravioli recipe is my most recent creation, and I like to serve it with a light Alfredo sauce and crumbled chicken sausage.

Ingredients

  • beets, peeled, roasted, and grated
  • medium-sized sweet potatoes, baked
  • One 15-ounce container ricotta cheese
  • 2  Cups  shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • package wonton wrappers

Directions

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the grated beets, sweet potato filling, and the cheeses. Stir to combine, mashing the baked potato with a fork until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 

On a large cutting board or work space, lay out the wonton wrappers and place about 1 tablespoon of the filling close to a corner of each wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper with some water and fold over to make a triangle. While filling the wonton wrappers, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.

Boil the ravioli until cooked through and floating at the top, about 3 minutes. Serve with a light cream sauce or toasted butter sauce.

Beet Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Beet Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
