Corn Stuffed Ravioli with Lime Cilantro Cream Sauce

corn-stuffed-ravioli-with-lime-cilantro-cream-sauce

Ravioli. Homemade Ravioli. Two words that have forever been etched in my mind to create myself but for some reason I just haven’t found the time to do it. After researching homemade ravioli recipes I had a revelation. There is no need!

No need to make your own ravioli dough other than you just want to. Yes, of course homemade pasta dough is extraordinary and there is and will never be any comparison but there is an easier way to create the same “effect”  using wonton wrappers. For this busy mom of two wonton wrappers was like my shining star and I now have a new found love for these little gems.

We all know I have a love for corn and with the arrival of spring I have been ready to use this amazing ingredient in a new and exciting way. What is more exciting than stuffing dough with a delicious spicy corn concoction? Nothing I say! Nothing!I used 1 cup of fresh corn and 3/4 cup of creamed corn (Gasp! from a can!). With hints of green chiles, red pepper flakes and roasted garlic the corn filling was so intoxicating that by the time I finished assembling the ravioli I found myself just eating the corn filling by the spoon. No one was around to see me!

By using the wonton wrappers in place of homemade ravioli making this recipe is a far cry from being hard. The extra special sauce lends itself perfectly against the spicy corn filling with the refreshing flavor of cilantro, lime and cream. I had an idea for the sauce after receiving a bottle of Whole Fruit Persian Lime Devo Olive Oil. It was the exact thing this dish needed and Warning: this is not going to make sense: the lime flavor was so intense yet subtle that it left you licking your plate for every last drop of the sauce and wishing you had more!

Do something fun, new and delicious this spring and make your own stuffed ravioli. I can see different variations of this recipe in my future like stuffed ravioli with roasted red peppers or goat cheese and poblanos or even with eggplant.

I am thrilled to mention that the food site Around the Plate has done a feature on my Corn Stuffed Ravioli. I would love for you to visit and read it! It would mean so much!

    Love that you used wonton wrappers for the dough…how did I not think of that?! Especially considering making homemade ravioli dough is quite the process. Worth it, but soo time consuming. The filling sounds delicious as well. 🙂

    I love making ravioli with wontons! whoever came up with that idea was a genius. The flavor of the filling really comes through. I love making pasta though… I did a fresh corn ravioli last summer with fresh pasta- tasty, but took all day to make! I like your idea better

    that is a interesting choice of filling 🙂 So far, I made ravioli at home, from scratch, only once. I like the idea of using wanton wrapper .. I tried that too and it’s not bad actually! The lime cilantro sauce is making my mouth watery!

    Question… Would it be possible just to use lime juice and regular olive oil? I dont know where I can buy the olive oil locally and it’s $20 without shipping from the website. Any help would be great! Thanks!

    Using wontons! I’m impressed! I just saw corn with lime-cilantro combination at another blogger. It seems like it’s a great combination that I haven’t tasted before. As always your recipe is always inspiring Jessica. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Never thought of using corn as a filling for ravioli, great idea! And perfect with the lime cilantro cream sauce…

    quite an inspiring post!

    Your ravioli looks delicious with the corn filling. I never make homemade ravioli as I live one block, here in Nashville, from the most wonderful little Italian pasta shop, Lazzarolis Pasta. Tom Lazzaro makes fresh pasta every day of the year…all types..lots of filled pastas with interesting fillings. So I just pop down and get a box of fresh pasta from him, but I am intrigued as your recipe looks very “do-able” and fun. Thanks.

      Oh wouldn’t that be so nice! I’m envious indeed. I would never make mine or buy store-bought if I lived near that place!

    Oh gosh, now I will be obsessed until I find a bottle of that oil. I had a bottle of lemon olive oil, which was made with whole pressed lemons, and it was wonderful. I am forever grateful to you for the idea of using the wonton wrappers as ravioli dough, that’s pure genius!

    first, it was green gnocchi and now ravioli and what a clever idea of using wanton wrappers! A lime cilantro cream sounds delicious, i wonder if it’s good to use for grilling meat. Next time if you have leftover wanton wrappers, you can just deep fried it alone, it will be a delicious snack too! it’s quite a popular food here, filled with shrimp or pork meat with added water chestnut or carrots.

      Fried wonton wrappers! Now that is just plain sinful! My family is going to question why we only have a few ravioli next time around! Lol! I’m going to stash them away to fry them! Great idea!

  25. Tina (PinayInTexas)

    Both the sauce and the filling sound superb, Jessica!

    Wonton wrappers? 😮 What an incredible “hack” – I love it… and you’d never know… I really thought it was home-made pasta. Colour me impressed. The filling as well looks absolutely delicious. I’ll have to remember this – thanks for sharing it, I bet it was a fantastic meal.

    02 . May . 2012

      Yeah- it is a nice shortcut and heck you could make it for guests and keep the wrapper thing a secret! Shhh! I won’t tell!

    That should taste interesting! We have homemade ravioli 2-3 times a week, everyone eats it, I am the only one who makes it… from scratch! 🙂 I love your method with wonton wrap, I make it with shrimp filling. I shell give it a try with other fillings too…:)

  33. There’s Much to Love about Corn-Stuffed Ravioli

    […] I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to corn on the cob, usually preferring to just boil it and serve it with a dab of butter and a pinch of salt, but Jessica Maher, the author behind the blog Kitchen Belleicious, developed an interesting alternative – Corn-Stuffed Ravioli with Lime Cilantro Cream Sauce.

      Oh definitely goes a long way plus the wonton wrappers aren’t as heavy as traditional pasta dough

    wow Jessica! this is a fabulous recipe – LOVE that you used wonton wrappers – delicious ingredients – my mouth is watering. I may try to be clever and try this at home!!

  37. Eva

    Corn, Cilantro and lime are such a wonderful combo, Jessica; it’s very clever to pack them all together into a little ravioli, and to use the wonton shells. If you wanted a slightly different take, try using coconut milk instead of the heavy cream for the sauce…it would put a Thai twist on it (and a tip of the hat to the wrappers), perhaps even garnish it with toasted coconut flakes. Of course, you wouldn’t need the cheese if you did that! Just a thought.
    It’s such a lovely recipe and a clever time saver too! Great one.

    03 . May . 2012

      Oh Eva! I love the idea if using coconut milk! Genius in fact. It would be so sweet and perfect with the lime!

    When I think of raviolis I always imagine them stuffed with meat or different types of cheese but adding corn sounds like a pretty good idea, actually fresh and different
