Ravioli With Mushrooms in Brown Butter Sauce




  When ever I go to the doctor, I get inspired to go home and cook. I went to the doctor the other day for a hamstring tear and while I was waiting for the doctor, I picked up a magazine to read. I discovered a great recipe for ravioli in brown butter that just sounded delicious. The original recipe had zucchini added to it but since my husband dislikes zucchini, I omitted that ingredient and added mushrooms. Most people like their ravioli with a tomato sauce but not me I prefer it with cheese or this new brown butter sauce. I know the balsamic vinegar in sounds weird but trust me it added a great flavor to the ravioli. So tell me, do you feel like cooking after going to the doctor?


                       Ravioli in Brown Butter Sauce
                 
                         1 25-ounce package cheese ravioli
                         1/3 cup butter
                         1/2 teaspoon salt
                         3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
                         8 ounces sliced mushrooms
                         shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese, optional for topping

   Directions:

   Cook ravioli according to package instructions and drain and place in bowl, set aside.
   In a skillet, heat butter and salt over medium heat, until butter is browned, about 3 minutes. Then        add balsamic vinegar and mushrooms. Saute the mushrooms until soft. When mushrooms are
   cooked remove from heat and pour this sauce over the cooked ravioli. Stir gently to combine. Serve    with shredded cheese.

  5. I LOVE ravioli and mushrooms. Whenever we go out to eat Italian, mushroom or lobster ravioli are my go to dish to order first off the menu. Haven't tried to make it at home, but will give it a try. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  6. I'm trying not to eat as much red sauce so this would be something I'd love to try. It looks so good and sounds tasty! I like to just pick up food if it's me going to the doctor but like to make a meal if it's for my kids going to the doctor.

  9. We love using mushrooms and Balsamic Vinegar in one of our pasta dishes as well. We use Penne pasta though, so I'm going to change things up next time and use Ravioli instead. Thanks for the inspiration.
