Trying Something New

Turkey Pesto RavioliThis month when I got my newsletter from my Pampered Chef consultant there was a featured recipe in it that I just HAD to try.  It sounded so good and so easy, I could not wait.  Last night Tyler and I went to the store, gathered the ingredients (which proved to be a little difficult to find but we managed) and assembled this yummy meal.  The results were WONDERFUL.  I just had to share the recipe with everyone.

A yummy and simple meal

Turkey & Pesto Ravioli with Fresh Tomato Sauce

The only thing I would have changed on the recipe was the sauce seemed a little thin to me.  I did double the recipe since I had the kids but I’ll tell you, it was really unnecessary.  There would have been plenty if I made just a single batch.  Tyler Mixing the filling Since I doubled it, I think I did not put enough grape tomatoes in the pan so that may have contributed to the thin sauce.  I did cut back a little on the garlic in the sauce since we don’t like much garlic.  It was still VERY tasty it was just pretty thin.  I think next time I’m going to try to thicken the sauce with something before I add the ravioli to it.  I was surprised very much by the wine in the sauce.   I don’t usually cook with wine and the sauce had a fair amount in it.  I wasn’t sure how this was going to affect the taste but it was amazing.  I think I’m going to have to try to cook with wine more often.  I could see this simple sauce being used with linguine or some other pasta/meat dishes.  An adventure I will have to try soon since I still have some wine left.

Hope you try the recipe and like it as much as we did.   If you try it, let me know what you think.  I’d love to hear about changes you might have made in the preparation.
