It’s like a whole lotta love in every bite.

I like to use Olivieri Fresh Ricotta & Spinach Ravioli  for this recipe but you could use any kind of ravioli that you like. 

Serve up this dish for a romantic date night dinner or even a busy work night. It is that simple to throw together fast so you have more time with your date or family. 

You might also want to serve up this Maple-Dijon Salmon with a Garden Herb Topper. It pairs nicely with the pear and shallot ravioli.

Ingredients:

Here are the ingredients that you will need to make this delightful pear and shallot ravioli recipe:

  • 2 Pears, finely diced (I used Bartlet pears)
  • 1 large shallot, diced or 2 small ones
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup butter or half a stick
  • 1-1/2 cups cream
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup chicken stock or veggie stock
  • 3/4 cup good quality parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar, honey or agave nectar
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • salt & pepper

Instructions:

Cooking the Ravioli:

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the ravioli for 4 minutes or according to the package instructions. 

Preparing the Sauce:

  • While the ravioli are cooking, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the diced pears and saute for 3 minutes. Use a potato masher to break down the pears into almost a puree. 
  • Add in the shallots and cook for another minute or so.
  • Now add the chicken stock. I like to use part of the chicken stock to begin with and then filter in more after to your desired thickness of the sauce.
  • Add in the cream, and pepper. Taste your sauce at this point. If it needs salt then add it. You get salt from the chicken stock so be careful not to over salt your dish. Your sauce is ready for the ravioli!
  1. Once the ravioli are cooked, transfer them directly from the boiling water to the skillet with the pear and shallot sauce. Toss gently to coat the ravioli in the sauce.

  2. I like to let the ravioli hang out in the sauce for 5 to 10 minutes off the heat and stirring often. You will find that it thickens on its own. When you are ready to serve, add a tiny bit more chicken stock if needed.

  3. Add your beautiful pear and shallot ravioli to a bowl and then sprinkle with fresh parsley and more parmesan cheese. Enjoy this delicate and most delicious bowl of ravioli!
