Easy Goat Cheese Ravioli with Caramelized Onion Mushroom Sage Cream Sauce and Fig Balsamic Drizzle

24 wonton wrappers
8 oz. fresh goat cheese
1 large egg
salt and fresh cracked ground pepper
1/3 cup thinly sliced onions
1-2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup white wine
2 tablespoons of Mushroom-Sage Olive Oil
2 tablespoons of Fig Balsamic Vinegar

Whisk together the goat cheese, egg, and salt & pepper for the filling. Set aside. Place half of the wonton wrappers on a lightly floured surface and mound a generous teaspoon of filling in the center.   Wet the edges around the filling with water and lay a second sheet on top. Thoroughly seal the edges of each ravioli. Begin to boil the raviolis in small batches for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes per batch.
For the sauce, in a large pan, sauté the thinly sliced onions and chopped garlic cloves in Mushroom Sage EVOO, over medium heat, until the onions become golden in color. Add the white wine to the onions and reduce by half. Add the cream and simmer for an additional minute whisking to combine. Season the sauce with salt and fresh ground pepper. Pour the warm cream sauce over the raviolis and toss. Drizzle with Fig Balsamic. Serve immediately.

The combination of herbs with the smooth and creamy chevre taste is unique. Pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling, semi-dry sweet wines.
