1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese, grated

1/8 tsp. salt

Preparation Instructions

1. Combine all crab mixture ingredients, excluding wonton wrappers, in a large bowl. Fold ingredients together until completely mixed. Do not break up crab meat.
2. Fill large pot with water and bring to a simmer. Work with one wonton at a time.  Cover remaining wrappers with damp towel to keep them from drying out.
3. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of crab mixture into center of each wrapper. Moisten edges of wrapper with water. Fold in half, pinching edges together to seal and create a triangle shape. Repeat procedure with remaining wonton wrappers and crab mixture.
4. Add half of ravioli to simmering water, cook 4 minutes or until done. Remove ravioli with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Toss with a bit of oil to prevent sticking. Repeat procedure with remaining ravioli.

Sauce:
1. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add onions and sauté for 3 minutes or until tender.  Add garlic and sauté 1 minute. Add crushed and diced tomatoes, bring to a boil.
2. Reduce heat.  Add vodka, chicken stock, salt, pepper, and simmer for 30 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and add half and half.  Stir.

To Serve:
Serve vodka sauce over crab ravioli.  Garnish with basil or chives and parmesan cheese (optional).
