12 oz. Pappardelle's Wild Mushroom Ravioli 3 tablespoons butter 5 large garlic cloves, chopped 2 large shallots, chopped 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 2 cups beef broth 2 cups dry red wine Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Add butter to a small sauté pan. Add garlic, shallots and thyme; sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add flour; stir 1 minute. Add broth and wine. Boil until sauce thickens and is reduced to 1-1/4 cups, stirring occasionally, about 10-12 minutes.
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.
Serve sauce over ravioli. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
