Fresh Chevre & Wild Mushroom Ravioli

6 9 x 12 sheets of fresh ravioli
8 oz. Appleton Creamery Classic Plain chevre
1 oz. Dried wild mushrooms
1 C boiling water
2T fresh thyme
1tsp salt
fresh black pepper to taste

Pour boiling water over mushrooms and let soak until mushrooms are soft. Reserve water.

Chop mushrooms into tiny pieces, mix with chevre, thyme, salt and pepper until fully combined. With a teaspoon, roll 36 balls of cheese and refrigerate for one hour.

On a sheet of pasta, place 12 balls of cheese mix, equally spaced out 3 x 4. Lightly dampen the pasta with the mushroom water, around the cheese balls. Place another sheet of pasta over the cheese and press around balls until the cheese is sealed in between the pasta sheets. (You may need to roll out the top layer of pasta a little to fit over the cheese filled one.) Cut sheets into 12 ravioli and set on a cookie sheet sprinkled with corn meal (this will keep the ravioli from sticking to each other)Repeat with the rest of the pasta sheets and refrigerate again for at least one hour.

Boil a large pot of salted water and put pasta in for 6-7 minutes or until the ravioli float to the top. Serve with a light Parmesan cream sauce or fresh marinara.
