EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Elevate frozen ravioli with sizzled garlic and shallots, shaved pecorino and fresh arugula. Serve with: Whole-grain baguette and a light-bodied red wine, such as pinot noir.”
1 pound fresh or frozen cheese ravioli, preferably whole-wheat
1 large clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 large shallots, sliced
3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Freshly ground pepper to taste
6 cups arugula
½ cup shaved Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese (see Tip)
1Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook ravioli until tender, 7 to 9 minutes or according to package directions.
2Meanwhile, mash garlic and salt into a paste with the side of a chef's knife or back of a spoon. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic paste and shallots and cook, stirring often, until just starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in vinegar, mustard and pepper; remove from the heat.
3Drain the ravioli well. Place in a large bowl and toss with arugula and the dressing. Serve sprinkled with cheese.
Tip: Use a vegetable peeler to shave curls off a block of hard cheese.
