Ravioli, by far, is my preferred pasta choice over any others, and I tend to be partial towards places which serve a good plate of Cheese Ravioli cooked in Creamy Tomato sauce. I don't like the plain marinara sauce with my Ravioli, and white sauce gets too heavy, so whenever we make Stuffed Ravioli at home, I go for a Tomato Basil and Cream sauce, which is a best of both the worlds! Filled with the goodness of tomatoes, spiced with basil and herbs, and with just a hint of cream to give it the smooth texture, this sauce is a perfect accompaniment to any stuffed ravioli, be it mushroom, spinach or cheese! Just sprinkle some Parmesan on the top and you are good to go. Try this Cheese Ravioli with homemade Tomato Basil Cream sauce and you'll never miss the restaurant recipe again!
1 packet of spinach raviolis
Parmesan cheese - for garnish
slivered almonds - for garnish
3 large fresh tomatoes
1/2 small onion - chopped
3 garlic cloves - minced
2 tbsp butter
4 tbsp parmesan cheese
2 tsp basil flakes
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 cup whipping cream
salt & pepper - to taste
Boil the tomatoes for 4-5 mins or until tender; Chop the onions and saute them in some oil till they look pinkish and glazed. Add the minced garlic and saute for another 1 minute.
Now blend the tomatoes, onions and garlic mixture to form a smooth paste.
Add some butter to a non-stick pan, then add the tomato-onion-garlic sauce and let it boil on medium-flame. Add the basil and oregano, salt and pepper, and let it simmer.
Whisk the whipping cream and the Parmesan cheese in a separate bowl to form a thick mixture. Reduce the flame to low, and add this mixture to the tomato sauce.
Meanwhile, cook the cheese ravioli in boiling water as instructed on the packet.
Layer the cooked ravioli in a dish, then top it with a generous coating of the sauce. Garnish with some more Parmesan cheese, slivered almonds and basil flakes. Serve your delicious restaurant-style Cheese Ravioli with Tomato Basil & Cream Sauce and flatter your friends and family!
