Red Wine Sauce over Wild Mushroom Ravioli

Serving Size:  2-3


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


  1. 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.
  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. Serve sauce over ravioli. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
