Easy Homemade Cheese Tortellini Recipe


  • Use one pack of wonton wrappers in place of homemade or fresh pre-made pasta sheets. Equally delicious and a real-time saver. ​
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese, well drained​
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature​
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped​
  • ¼ cup olive oil​
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped​
  • 1 egg, beaten​
  • salt and pepper, to taste​
  • 1 small paint brush​


  1. In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine ricotta cheese, cream cheese, and thyme, then salt and pepper to taste. ​
  2. Chill in the refrigerator a few minutes to firm up the filling.​
  3. Place a teaspoon of the mixture on top of a single wonton wrapper. With a small brush, dip into egg and paint around the edges of wonton wrapper. Fold into a triangle.​
  4. Then, paint the two bottom corners of triangle with egg. Next, join bottom two corners to form tortellini shape.​
  5. Boil tortellini for approximately 3 minutes. Remove tortellini and drain pot.​
  6. In same pot, add olive oil and sauté garlic. Then add tortellini and swirl, do this gently as wonton noodles are not as sturdy as traditional pasta. ​
  7. Serve with Sutter Home Cabernet Sauvignon and enjoy!​
