Ravioli with sweet potato and spinach pesto

Slightly different, but still dumplings filled with delicious sweet potato and served with spinach pesto.

Do you always have problem with folding dumplings? Never again! because someone discovered ravioli. I like dumplings so much, I could have eat them everyday. Always when it come to folding I am wondering how it gonna look in the end. Since today I do not have this problem, because I make ravioli. Two square pieces, one on another with feeling inbetween, kneaded edges and voila :). Nothing falls apart in hands.
