Add 2 tbsp of Olive oil to a sauté pan over medium heat, add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, soften and slight caramel colour.  ****DO NOT BURN GARLIC…..BAD**** Set aside for plating.  Melt 6 tbsp of butter.

Cut pasta or egg roll wraps into 4” circles and cover with a damp cloth to prevent drying.  Working with 5 rounds at a time, place about 1 tbsp of filling mixture on each round.  Wet the edges of the pasta, and then fold over to form a half moon and pinch the edges to seal.  Bring around the two corners of the noodle and pinch again to form the ravioli.  Repeat until all the pasta is used up.  Bring a large pot of chicken broth or water to boil.  Add ravioli and boil until pasta floats to the top, about 3 minutes.  Drain and place on serving plates.   Drizzle with melted butter, garnish with slivered garlic, fresh chives, Shards of parmesan and dot the plates with Pesto.
