  • 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

  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 6 cups arugula

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook ravioli until tender, 7 to 9 minutes or according to package directions.

  2. 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
