  • Meanwhile, 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.

  • Drain the ravioli well. Place in a large bowl and toss with arugula and the dressing. Serve sprinkled with cheese.

Tips

Tip: Use a vegetable peeler to shave curls off a block of hard cheese.

Absolutely fantabulous. Easy as can be and super flavorful. Probably the only recipe in the last 3 years that I haven't had to tweak in any way. Will be even better when we make it with homemade ravioli but just superb with store bought anyway. I won't even admit to how much of this we ate!! No savings of calories here! Read More

Fantastic! I used Pappardelle's Asiago Basil & Garlic ravioli which was perfect. Very easy but full of flavor. Read More

We added some sweet potato ribbons to the shallots as they cooked and we really loved the outcome! I'm sure it's delicious without as well but we'll definitely be making this again in the same way. (Sweet potato ribbons are sold ready to cook at Trader Joe's.) I also like that this recipe comes together quite quickly and is a sneaky way to add in some greens with the pasta. Read More

This recipe tastes great. I left off the cheese on mine by accident and didn't miss it but I am going to add it in and I bet it will be even better. If you are calorie-counting keep in mind that this recipe can baloon beyond the estimated calories provided very easily. I also used Buitoni Whole Grain Four Cheese Ravioli and I ran the recipe through a calculator. Accounting for the extra 2oz of ravioli between the two packages I bought the recipe came in at a high 571 calories! I solved that problem by making each serving separately and measuring out a reasonable portion of ravioli before mixing everything together. The calories will defintely depend on the ravioli you choose though. The whole grain raviolis I looked at actually had more calories but it's worth it imo for the fiber and fullness. Read More

so easy to prepare and my boyfriend wouldn't stop gushing about it. The 1/4 cup oil startled me at first (oh my god calories) but it really is needed because there is so much arugula it was absolutely delicious....will definitely make for company and for myself in the future! Read More

This was delcious in it's simplicity. Nice combination of ingredients and quick to make. The one change I made to the recipe was to mash the garlic with alder smoked fine salt which gave the dish a nice smoky taste with the pepper. Along with a nice Chardonnay this was a nice light meal. It is now in my favorite folder. Read More
