Creamy Tuscan Ravioli Recipe

Melissa Jo

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes
  • 7 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1/4 cup of julienned sun-dried tomatoes
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 4 oz. white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 5 oz. baby spinach
  • Basil for garnish
  • 1 lb. ravioli cooked al dente in salted water

Instructions
 

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt the butter with the sun-dried tomato oil.
  • Add the chopped garlic, julienned sun-dried tomatoes, salt, cracked black pepper, and crushed red pepper to the skillet. Sauté until the garlic turns golden and releases its aroma.
  • Stir in the tomato paste and cook for a few minutes to enhance its flavor and develop a rich color.
  • Deglaze the pan by adding the fresh lemon juice and white wine. Allow the alcohol to cook off, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour in the chicken stock and heavy cream, then increase the heat to bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Add the freshly grated parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese to the skillet, stirring until it melts and incorporates into the sauce.
  • Simmer the sauce until it begins to thicken, maintaining a gentle simmer for about 5-7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the baby spinach and al dente ravioli to the skillet. Let the pasta water drip into the sauce, enhancing its flavor.
  • Cover the skillet for approximately one minute, allowing the spinach to wilt and the ravioli to absorb the flavors of the sauce.
  • Transfer the creamy sun-dried tomato ravioli to a family-size bowl, garnish with fresh basil leaves, and serve immediately.

Notes

  • For a vegetarian option, you can substitute vegetable stock for chicken stock.

  • To enhance the flavor, consider adding cooked diced chicken or grilled shrimp.

  • Customize the spice level by adjusting the amount of crushed red pepper to your preference.

  • Make sure to cook the ravioli al dente to prevent it from becoming too soft and losing its texture.

  • Serve the dish with a side salad or garlic bread for a complete meal.
