Wontons are a great party snack. This recipe also freezes well. You can buy wonton wrappers in Asian supermarkets.
I found the idea for cheat's ravioli in Valli Little's recipe book 'faking it - how to cook delicious food without really trying'. Wonton Ravioli is a happy meduim - a great alternative to making pasta from scratch if you are time poor, and beats store bought ravioli hands down. I will definitely be making this again! my biggest critics (one of whom is an avid fresh pasta maker) also agree.

This recipe makes a huge batch - about 150 wontons - but you can freeze them and cook them later by steaming or deep frying.
