How To Make Lobster Ravioli
Although the ravioli may be a relatively Italian dish, the possibilities to get creative with fillings are endless. Cheese, meat, vegetables, fruit—we’ve eaten it all. Perhaps one of our favorite ravioli variations is this one featuring the king of the crustaceans—lobster. The buttery taste of the lobster meat mixed with fresh herbs and cheese make this dish the ultimate experience in indulgence. Best yet, it’s a cinch to make if you have a pasta maker!

3. Add the lobster pieces and mascarpone cheese to the thickened poaching liquid. Lay out the wonton wrappers, working in small batches. Spoon 1 tablespoon of filling into the center of each, brush the edge with water to moisten, place a second wonton over the top and press to adhere and to remove the air. Use a biscuit cutter to cut and create round raviolis.
