These wontons are a baked version of the popular Chinese appetizer but with an Italian twist – they’re filled with ricotta cheese, pesto and jarred roasted peppers.


Olive oil cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Part-skim ricotta cheese

½ cup(s)

Reduced-fat pesto sauce

3 tbsp(s)

Roasted red peppers (packed in water)

3 tbsp(s), chopped

Shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 tbsp(s)

Rice paper wrappers

16 oz

Store-bought marinara sauce

1 cup(s), warmed


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F). Coat a large baking sheet with a good amount of cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, pesto, peppers and mozzarella.
  3. Place wonton wrappers on prepared baking sheet so wontons become saturated with oil.
  4. Place 15ml (1 Tbsp) ricotta mixture onto centre of each wrapper. Dip a finger into water and use it to moisten edges of wrapper; fold over one corner of wrapper to make a triangle and press sides together to create a seal. If desired, create decorative lines along edges of wontons by pressing tines of a fork along bottom edge of each wonton.
  5. Bake until wontons are golden brown on edges and dough is just cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
