Sweet Potato Ravioli

A new world has just opened up to me, so I thought I'd share it - WONTON 
WRAPPERS are used to make this "Ravioli" dish.  It couldn't be easier, and 
the flavors are wonderful.  I cook the sweet potato in the microwave the day 
before, and then let it cool in the refrigerator overnight.  Then before I 
went to work I mashed it, and stirred in the yogurt and herbs.  This made it 
very quick to complete when I came home from work.
I wonder what other fillings could be used in the wrappers?  Maybe spinach 
and fat-free ricotta?
I'd love to hear your ideas

   2      tablespoons   nonfat plain yogurt
   1      teaspoon      fresh chives -- minced

  24      whole         won-ton wrappers
   2      tablespoons   flour
   1       clove         garlic, minced
     1/2  cup           skim milk

mixture in center of each wonton.  Spread filling flat leaving 1/2 inch

pressing lightly to seal.  Place filled wontons on baking sheet and cover

a few ravioli at a time, do not overcrowd.  Cook until tender, about 9 
minutes.  Transfer to platter with slotted spoon.
Add flour to garlic, milk and broth in a saucepan.  Cook and stir constantly 
until thickened, and then about 4 minutes more.  Stir in nutmeg, and pepper.  
Put a little of the sauce on a serving platter, then place ravioli on top of 
sauce.  Cover with remainder of sauce and sprinkle on the rest of the sage .
Sprinkle with fat-free parmesan cheese.
