Quick Ravioli Recipe with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Arugula & Hazelnuts {Giveaway}

Quick-Ravioli-Recipe-with-Sun-Dried-Tomatoes-Arugula-&-Hazelnuts-Giveaway-Cookin-Canuck

 

At the mere mention of spring, my husband pulls on shorts and my kids start asking when the outdoor swimming pools are going to open. The mercury in the thermometer is creeping up (well…actually, the numbers on the digital weather station in the kitchen are increasing…modern day stuff, you know) and despite the snow that still blankets the nearby mountains, the kids are begging to eat outside.

For our first outdoor picnic of the year, I wanted something easy. A dish we could scoop into bowls and cup in our hands as we nestled together on our threadbare picnic blanket sounded perfect. That’s how this quick and easy ravioli, tossed with sun-dried tomatoes, arugula and hazelnuts came to be.

MontereyRavioliArugula8

Dreaming up our first picnic meal of the season came rather easily. There was a supply of Monterey Gourmet Foods™ products sitting in my fridge, set aside for a day when I wanted something really tasty that didn’t require a lot of energy or brainpower to make. Thinking of what to make for dinner really is half the battle, isn’t it?

With a base of Roasted Chicken and Mozzarella Ravioli to work from, the pieces started to fall into place without much effort. I could have easily tossed the ravioli with some of Monterey Gourmet Foods Basil, Almond and Pine Nut Pesto and some fresh vegetables for a delicious, healthy meal. However, pesto had been on the menu the night before and I wanted something a little different.

There were a couple of handfuls of arugula left over from our meal of Baked Tilapia with Arugula & Walnut Pesto and Toasted Breadcrumbs that needed to be used. I tossed the arugula, some sliced sun-dried tomatoes, toasted hazelnuts and some olive oil into a serving bowl.

Once the ravioli was cooked, having transformed into tender pillows of pasta, I gently tossed it with the arugula mixture.

That was it.

All that was left was garnishing the dish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, dishing it out into bowls and carrying it out to Station Picnic in the backyard.

Not only was this dish kid-friendly, but the flavors worked so well together that my husband and I decided we would proudly serve this meal at a dinner party with friends.

Looking through the Monterey Gourmet Foods website, I realized there were at least a dozen products I wanted to try, ones that would be appropriate for Meatless Monday meals as well as future picnics. My husband has his eye on the Butternut Squash Ravioli while I keep coming back to the gnocchi and tapenade. So many options…

With our focus on healthy eating, I am thrilled that Monterey Gourmet Foods adheres to their 8 All Natural Principles, which include a commitment to NOT using hydrogenated oils or artificial chemically manufactured additives, and ONLY using meat and dairy products from cows that are not treated with hormones or antibiotics.

The recipe:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the ravioli and cook according package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water. Drain the ravioli.

While the ravioli is cooking, stir together the sun-dried tomatoes, hazelnuts, arugula, salt and pepper in a large serving bowl.

When I eat raviolis, I like sticking to lighter toppings and sauces too in order to let the ravioli flavor come out – these bowls of raviolis look awesome. Raviolis have been one of my favorites since I was a kid and I’ve always relied on store-bought, so it’d be interedting to check out some of the Monterey varieties.

Probably add some shredded Parm or Romano, drizzle of lemon juice. Maybe add some sauteed veggies if I felt like it, too! :) Served with homemade garlic bread, of course.

Sundried tomatoes and arugula are a fabulous and perfect go-to pairing, but I love the addition of crunchy hazlenuts! And what i wouldn’t give to try this Roasted Chicken & Mozz ravioli! Sounds so good! And how about tossing the arugula into a pan with a dash of olive oil and the sundried tomatoes just to heat through and wilt, soften the tomatoes a bit and stir in cream and a bit of parmesan to make a hot, creamy sauce? Maybe add a few roasted cherry tomatoes? Oh my now I am hungry!

I would use the Chicken and Mozzarella ravioli and add sautéed asparagus and toasted slivered almonds and a dusting of parmigiano reggiano cheese. I’d pair it with a grilled romaine salad dressed with homemade ranch dressing and roasted tomatoes. Folk Machine Pinot Noir to drink! Cheers!

I would experiment with the stuffed pastas (tortillini/ravioli/etc.) and combine different sauces/veggies until I found the perfect combo!

Even though my family loves pasta, I’ve discovered I can sometimes use rice in place of pasta and they love it too. Especially brown and wild rice. Recently I paired alfredo sauce with brown rice and grilled scallops and it was out of this world! I would love to try Monterey Gourmet Foods Alfredo sauce in my recipes.
