Ravioli With Tomato-Basil Cream Sauce


In a rush to get dinner on the table? Combine a few fresh ingredients with high-quality convenience items to quickly prepare this elegant pasta dish created by Marguerite Cleveland of Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and printed in “The Southern Living Community Cookbook” by Sheri Castle. Serves 4-6.

1 20-ounce package of refrigerated four-cheese ravioli
1 16-ounce jar of sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce
2 tablespoon of white wine
2 cups of finely diced fresh tomatos or 1 14.5-ounce can of petite diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/3 cup (3 ounces) of shredded Parmesan cheese
Garnish: thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

1. Prepare the ravioli according to the package directions.

2. Meanwhile, pour the Alfredo sauce into a large saucepan.

3. Pour the wine into the sauce jar; cover it tightly, shake well and stir the wine into the sauce. (The alcohol will cook out.)

4. Stir in the tomatoes and chopped basil. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

5. Drain the pasta, add it to the sauce mixture and stir gently to coat the pasta.

6. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
