Ravioli with Crema Primavera

Evolving dinner idea. Just some store bought ravioli. Had some fresh asparagus steamed them for a minute over the boiling pasta water and then sauteed with four thinly sliced organic garlic cloves and some EVOO. Decided to add a handful of sliced field mushrooms.

Then remembered I had some leftover cream from Saturday’s French Toast (use a bit of almond essence as well in the batter – does no harm at all). First just splashed a bit of sherry (bottomless bottle of) around in the pan then added the cream. Bit of a simmer while the ravioli was on, then seasoned to taste and garnished with parmesan.

Fresh and fuggintastic. Keep away from jars. No excuses.

    … usually get spinach and cheese ravioli, make a sauce with cream and blue cheese. garnish with the big leaf parsley and a bit of celery greenery, belissimo…

    Even the other half and her teen tinlids (all confirmed blue cheese haters (“ewwwww!!! moldy!!” – heathens all)) enjoy this one.

    PS don’t know if you frequent the Cafe di Rocco in Subi but it was Rocco’s recipe of gorgonzola cheese sauce ravioli that put me onto the basic flavour I was aiming for.

    Haven’t been to Roccos. Good job on the sauce, “I usually don’t like X, but…” is beautiful music to a cook’s ear
