For someone who plans ahead to avoid disappointment, I'm thrilled when there is no other option but to improvise a meal with what happens to be available in the fridge and larder. And with today's ever full schedules, I find that this is happening much too often. The other day was one of them. As soon as I set foot home at the end of one of those days, it dawned on me that that mornings' meal planning routine - which usually plays out in my mind for an entire day - had completely escaped me. The result? Not enough ingredients to put together a decent supper. Oh, the horror!
Or so I thought. What saved my day (or eve?) was a dozen or so ricotta-stuffed ravioli. Great. I had the hero. Yet just like movie heroes are flanked by a sidekick to overcome the villain, my ravioli badly needed a supporting act to tackle the looming hunger. We traditionally serve ricotta-stuffed ravioli with a simple tomato sauce. Having no desire to go through the motions, I had to come up with a quick yet tasty alternative. It felt like a do or die situation so I went all-in. I melted a knob of butter which I got going with a drizzle of olive oil, added some roughly chopped rosemary while in a separate pan I toasted a handful of chopped pistachios. Once cooked, I gently tossed the pasta for a minute or two to coat with the sauce, then plated the ravioli, grated some parmigiano, added a sprinkle of dried chilli flakes and topped everything with chopped pistachios. Spontaneity can be fun and tasty too!
What is your favourite ravioli sauce?
