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.

Ingredients

olive oil cooking spray

4 spray(s)

part-skim ricotta cheese

½ cup(s)

reduced-fat pesto sauce

3 Tbsp

roasted red peppers (packed in water)

3 Tbsp, chopped

shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 Tbsp

wonton wrapper(s)

16 item(s)

store bought marinara sauce

1 cup(s), warmed

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 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. Place 1 tablespoon ricotta mixture onto center 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.
  4. 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. Yields 1 wonton and 1 tablespoon sauce per serving.
