Preparation

Ravioli
Beat 1 egg in a small bowl for egg wash and set aside. Combine remaining egg and all the other ingredients in a medium bowl. Lay out ravioli squares. Use a ½ Tb measuring spoon to scoop mix onto the ravioli. Brush the sides of the pasta with the egg wash and fold the corners together to form a triangle. Press the edges together to seal. Layer the raviolis between sheets of parchment or paper towels. Cook in salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes.
Sauce
Sweat onions, garlic and thyme in 1 Tb butter over low heat. Add the chicken stock and simmer for 5 minutes. In a medium sauce pot melt the remaining butter. Add the flour and cook for 3 minutes to create a roux. Strain the chicken stock mixture into the roux stirring constantly. Before plating whisk the lemon butter into the sauce.

Serve this dish with asparagus and artichoke hearts for a tasty meal.
