Saw this one, Looks real good.

Crab Ravioli with Lemon Butter

For the filling:
1 cup ricotta cheese (8 ounces)
1 cup lump crabmeat,
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
For the ravioli:
All-purpose flour, for baking sheet
90 wonton wrappers (two 12-ounce packages)
1 large egg, lightly beaten, for egg wash
Coarse salt
For the sauce:
1 stick unsalted butter
2 teaspoons lemon peel, very finely chopped, plus 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Garnish: fresh chervil


Make the filling: Mix together ricotta, crabmeat, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and the red-pepper flakes.
Make the ravioli: Lightly flour a baking sheet. Working in batches, arrange 45 wonton wrappers on a work surface; keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel. Mound 1 teaspoon crab filling in the center of each. Brush edges of wrappers with egg wash, and top each with another wrapper. Press edges to seal. Cut out circles using a 2 1/4-inch cookie cutter; transfer to baking sheet.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Working in 2 batches, cook ravioli until they rise to the top, 2 to 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the sauce: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt 4 tablespoons butter, and heat until just bubbling and frothy. Transfer first batch of ravioli to skillet using a slotted spoon, along with about 2 tablespoons cooking liquid. Add 1 teaspoon chopped lemon peel and 1 teaspoon juice, and swirl to combine. Transfer to plates.
Repeat with second batch of ravioli. Garnish with chervil.
