Traditionally, homemade ravioli is a dish that's neither fast nor easy to prepare, but with a little ingenuity, it can be — relatively speaking. Instead of laboring over mixing and then rolling out pasta dough — a worthy weekend project, to be sure — swap out store-bought wonton wrappers [1]. (Look for them by the tofu.) While not an exact match to pasta dough, these pliant, eggy squares are a solid stand-in and can be filled, shaped, and cooked with ease.

To shape a ravioli, simply dollop a bit of your favorite filling, such as pumpkin [2] or goat cheese and lemon [3] in the center of a wrapper, brush the edges of the dough with egg wash [4], top with a second wrapper, and seal, pressing out any air bubbles. Repeat until the filling is used up, then cook as usual.
