Spinach Mushroom Ravioli

Pasta dishes are some of my favorite entrees and Spinach Mushroom Ravioli is incredibly easy and delicious. When I say easy, you can’t get much easier than this! I started with a Spinach Mozzarella Ravioli purchased at Costco. The Porcini and White Mushrooms with Spinach in Garlic Herb Sauce was purchased at H-E-B grocery stores which is a common grocery chain here in the Metroplex and Texas. I made up my own Al Fredo sauce using both Parmesan and Romano Cheeses, butter and half-and-half and seasoned with parsley. It was a warm and comforting dish that was very satisfying and tasty.

I found the two main items for this recipe at different times and stashed them in my freezer. A couple of weeks ago, I was really in the mood for some pasta. So I thought I would throw them together and see what I could come up with. I really wasn’t planning on posting this, but it turned out so well I’m glad I took a few pictures along the way. Unless you live in Texas or the southwest I’m not sure you will have access to the frozen Porcini and White Mushrooms with Spinach in Garlic Herb Sauce. While some of you may be able to concoct your own imitation of these veggies, it obviously would be so much easier to purchase the packages that H-E-B sells. Central Market actually makes the mushrooms.

One recommendation: the garlic herb sauce that the mushrooms come in provides a good bit of garlic flavor. I loved the addition of garlic powder, but unless you really enjoy a lot of garlic in your recipes, you may want to eliminate that ingredient. Spinach Mushroom Ravioli uses three cheeses, mozzarella in the ravioli, and both romano and parmesan in the al fredo sauce. It makes a very rich, meatless pasta dish which is great for Meatless Mondays.

If you want a quick and easy pasta main dish and are able to locate the ingredients for this recipe, Spinach Mushroom Ravioli is a cinch to make and delectable to the taste buds.

While ravioli is boiling, make al fredo sauce. Melt butter. Stir in flour with a whisk. Add half-and-half about an eighth of a cup at a time until all is whisked into the sauce. Add cheeses. Season with salt, pepper and parsley. Allow to cook over low to medium heat about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat. Set aside.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: I found the ravioli at Costco, and the mushroom/spinach in the vegetable freezer section at H-E-B grocery stores.

NOTE: You will need to use half-and-half or cream to get the right texture for this sauce.

NOTE: Once I added the frozen ravioli to the boiling water, it took almost 8 minutes to get it back to a rolling boil. I boiled it another 4 minutes before removing from heat.

NOTE: The mushrooms are in a garlic herb sauce, so you may not want to add additional garlic powder.
