Indulge In {Ravioli with Prosecco Cream Sauce}

This is what happens when I plan on making dinner, don't plan on sharing it with you, and it turns out to fabulous not to. You get Instagrammed photos. I know we all love Instagram but sometimes it's not the best means of sharing images, especially on a blog. But, sometimes you have to work with what you have.

Saturday night started out pretty typical. We skipped the football game because we were unwilling to sit in the pouring rain, and had planned on ordering take out as we do most Saturdays. That was until I stumbled upon this recipe that I couldn't pass up. So, during a break in the storms, I headed to the store to gather the supplies. With a few spur of the moment ingredients added, and the quick boil of a sauce and a package of raviolis, we had quite possibly one of the best, much fancier and complicated than it sounds, meals I've ever made. The Prosecco cream sauce had just enough flavor to compliment the raviolis (I used mushroom and four cheese) without being heavy and overpowering. Plus it was super simple to make! This is the kind of dish that takes no time, but makes a big impact on guests. Here's the recipe...

:: Ingredients ::
2 Packages Store Bought Ravioli (I used mushroom four cheese.)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1 Cup Heavy Cream
1/2 Cup Prosecco
1 Tsp Tomato Paste
1/2 Cup Asiago Cheese, shredded (plus more for garnish)
Salt & Pepper to Taste

:: Directions ::
1. In a medium sauce pan, heat olive oil adding garlic one oil is hot. Sautee garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
2. Add in heavy cream, Prosecco, and tomato paste. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
3. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook ravioli according to package directions.
4. Once sauce has simmered for about 10 minutes, add in asiago cheese and stir until melted.
5. Drain pasta and place in individual bowls. Ladle sauce over top, sprinkle with asiago cheese, and garnish with fresh or dried parsley.

*I additionally served mine with Italian seasoned grilled chicken breast.
