Truffled Pumpkin Ravioli, Rapini with Red Pepper Flakes

I know it’s cheating. How dare I use pre-made ravioli and then have the audacity to write about it in my blog? Because I can, and because it’s good!

Rising Moon Organic Ravioli (Food Coop, ~$3) is a neatly packaged meal for two on those evenings you need a quick dinner without succumbing to take-out. That doesn’t mean it has to be tasteless and devoid of imagination.

I steamed the rapini (broccoli rabe) in water with a teaspoon of salt (this breaks the bitterness), drained it and mixed in lemon juice and olive oil, then sprinkled pepper flakes.

We cooked the ravioli according to package instructions, and added a secret ingredient that makes most things divine: truffle oil!

Plated nicely this was a nice meal over even nicer conversation.I definitely loved the little firm pillows of squash love.
