Chef Chuck's Ravioli with Cherry Tomatoes


Ravioli con Pomodorini
Handmade fresh pasta filled with Gorgonzola Cheese and Walnuts, served with a cherry tomato sauce. Produced by Italy's superior pasta maker, Leonardo Salvini, from Tradizioni Padane, our friend and partner.  Soft and delicate, this hand folded pasta was an gastronomic experience. The quality of flavors are maintained using Italian cherry tomatoes and superb extra virgin olive oil from, Antico Casale dei Conti, our friends too!

Ravioli with Cherry Tomatoes

12 ounces ravioli or
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dry oregano
or 2 teaspoons fresh
salt and pepper
parmigiano cheese, grated

In a large pan heat olive oil add garlic for a minute, pour in tomatoes and sauce, oregano, salt and pepper.  Place a lid on and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
Boil water add salt and cook pasta according to directions, I usually cook a minute or two less. This fresh pasta was ready in two minutes!  Add pasta to sauce, combine and grate parmigiano cheese over the dish.
