1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided

10 ounce baby spinach (about 8 cups)
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Combine ricotta, 3 tablespoons Parmesan, 1 tablespoon pesto, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Arrange 8 wonton wrappers on a work surface (cover remaining wrappers to prevent drying). Moisten edge of wrappers with egg. Place 1 tablespoon ricotta mixture in center of each wrapper. Fold each wrapper in half, pressing well to seal edge. Cover with a damp towel to prevent drying. Repeat procedure with remaining wonton wrappers, remaining egg, and remaining ricotta mixture.
Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Carefully add ravioli to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove ravioli with a slotted spoon.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium; add garlic, and sauté 2 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and spinach until wilted. Stir in juice. Divide spinach mixture among 4 plates; top evenly with ravioli, remaining 1 tablespoon Parmesan, remaining & remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
