Little Dumplings
  • 2Servings


  • 6 tablespoons ricotta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 8 wonton wrappers
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • Pinch crushed red pepper


Stir together the ricotta, cream cheese, parmesan and nutmeg; season with salt and black pepper.

Place 4 wonton wrappers on a work surface. Center 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture on each wrapper. Wet your finger with water and dampen the edges of each wrapper. Cover with the remaining 4 wrappers, pressing out all the air and sealing to enclose.

In a small pan, combine the olive oil, lemon peel and crushed red pepper and warm over low heat. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the dumplings and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Gently drain the dumplings and transfer to a serving plate. Drizzle the warm olive oil on top.
