I have more food for you today, but first, take a peek at these socks I read about on Ravelry. I had to order a pair.
Yesterday while I was at Costco, I decided to find something for dinner that would be quick. Usually I buy fresh fish for Sunday dinner, but I didn’t really feel like cooking it, as I was going to be busy all day. I spied a package of Butternut Squash Ravioli, and my heart went pitter-pat. Into the cart they went, without much thought as to how I’d serve them.
While I was at SnB later that day, I was telling Eliza that I’d be making them for dinner. When she asked if I was going to do a sauce, I said I figured I’d just grab a jar out of the pantry – I knew I had some marinara, and maybe some Alfredo sauce. And there was some home-made pesto sauce in the freezer. But really, none of those sounded right. As we were talking, it occurred to me to just do a butter sauce with fresh sage. And maybe walnuts. Brilliant! So that’s what I did.
While the water was heating up for the pasta, I picked and chopped a handful of fresh sage leaves, chopped up another handful of walnuts, and grated some Parmesan cheese. When the ravioli went in the water, I heated up a big blob of butter in a skillet, then added the sage and walnuts, stirring it all around until nicely browned. By then the pasta was done, so I drained it, put some on each plate, drizzled the sauce over, and then topped it with the cheese.
Simple, elegant, and oh-so-delicious.
