Nutella Ravioli

Nutella Ravioli

1⁄2 cup Nutella
16 wonton skins
1 banana, sliced into 15 thin rounds
Olive oil or nonstick cooking spray
Confectioner’s sugar (optional)

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place 1/2 tablespoon of Nutella into the center of each wonton skin. Put a banana slice on the Nutella. Dip your finger in some water, run it along the edge of the skin, and fold the skin in half, pressing to seal. Arrange the prepared ravioli on a greased baking sheet. Brush the ravioli with olive oil.

Bake until the skins are crispy and golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then serve. If desired, dust the ravioli with confectioner’s sugar just before serving.
