Each blogger was assigned one of the Legends from Europe to create a recipe with and my ingredient was Parmigiano Reggiano!
Pumpkin Raviolis with Pumpkin Alfredo Sage Sauce with Pomegranate Seeds and Parmigiano Reggiano
When creating this dish I was inspired by the autumn colors and gentle breezes in the air. It's the perfect pasta dish, celebrating this time of year, with a savory and mildly sweet pumpkin ravioli with tart, refreshing pops from the pomegranate seeds and a salty bite from the freshly grated peels of Parmigiano Reggiano that brings the dish together.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
1 package (about 12 raviolis) pumpkin raviolis
1 (8 oz.) can pumpkin puree
1 (16 oz.) jar Alfredo sauce
1 T. brown sugar
1/8 t. pumpkin pie spice, or to taste
1 T. fresh sage, minced
20 pomegranate seeds, more or less as desired
1/4 c. freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano, or more if desired as it's hard not to!
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add raviolis. Cook just until tender being careful to prevent them from exploding about 8 to 10 minutes.
In the meantime combine pumpkin puree, Alfredo sauce, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and sage in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat and simmer to warm through and for flavors to meld.
Assemble dish by plating raviolis in a bowl, spoon on sauce then garnish with pomegranate seeds and freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano.
