Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce atop Chopped Spinach and Four Cheese Ravioli

Serving Size:  4-6


24 oz. Pappardelle's Chopped Spinach & Four Cheese Ravioli
1/2 cup Pappardelle’s Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto (or about 3 oz. sun-dried tomatoes, reconstituted and coarsely chopped)
1/4 cup water
1 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
1/2 cup fresh basil


  1. Heat pesto gently, and add water and cream. Heat until sauce comes together, but don’t boil.
  2. Meanwhile, cook ravioli in 4 quarts of water for each pound. Add a hearty pinch of salt. Bring water to a full boil, reduce heat and then add ravioli. (If you add ravioli when the water is at a robust boil, you risk having the ravioli split open.) Occasionally, stir gently to prevent ravioli from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Once water returns to a gentle boil, cook about 8-12 minutes. Drain carefully, or simply use a slotted spoon to remove the ravioli individually from the pot.
  3. Stir in fresh basil and drizzle over ravioli.
