This is my first attempt at making my own ravioli, and they turned out delicious. My family all loved them and I will be making them again in the near future. This recipe is made easier by using won ton skins instead of homemade pasta. The filling is full of yummy Italian goodness. It is topped with a quick and yummy sauce that starts with a can of Progresso Fire Roasted Tomato Recipe Starter Sauce. I hope you try and love these as much as me and my family did. Enjoy!
1Ravioli filling: Remove skins from sausage, and brown in skillet. Set aside to cool while you chop onions, mushrooms and garlic (save time and chop everything for filling and sauce at once..and use 1/2 of the onion & garlic in filling and sauce.
2Saute the mushrooms, spinach, onion and garlic in the butter/olive oil until done. Let cool slightly.
In food processor, pulse sausage, mushroom/spinach mixture and basil leaves (saves time) until coursly chopped.
3In bowl, thoroughly mix together all the cheeses, eggs, and S&P. Stir in cooled sausage, and mushroom/onion/spinach mixture. Chill for a bit while you make the sauce.
4Assembling ravioli: Lay won ton skins out in rows on parchment lined cookie sheets. Place a spoonful of filling in center. Moisten edges with water, place top skin on, squeeze out all the ait and seal well. Repeat until all ravioli are made. Cook in boiling lightly salted water for 3 minutes. Drain and top with sauce.
5Sauce: Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent. Add basil and pepper flakes and cook one more minute. Add Sherry and cook off alcohol for a minute or two. Add can of Progresso sauce. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in cream.
6At this point, I used my immersion blender to make the sauce smoother. Choose the texture you want, smooth or chunky. You can add the basil leaves whole and the IB chops it up.
Garnish with fresh basil and parmesan, if desired. Enjoy!
