Fresh Tomato Sauce with Basil atop Asiago Cheese, Roasted Garlic and Fresh Basil Ravioli

Serving Size:  2-3


12 oz. Pappardelle’s Asiago, Roasted Garlic & Fresh Basil Ravioli
1 lb. fresh tomatoes
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Fresh basil, a few sprigs


  1. Peel, seed and chop tomatoes.
  2. In a medium saucepan, add a hearty dollop of olive oil. Add garlic and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and let cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve piping hot with sauce drizzled over ravioli. Tear fresh basil and sprinkle on top.
