Pumpkin Ravioli with Spinach Marinara
I also list all of the local items featured for the quick assembly (they are most likely things you see often at your favorite market).
The Pasta Shop makes several varieties of fresh pasta. My favorite are their pumpkin vegan raviolis
Start by boiling them for 7-10 minutes.
The Pasta Shop also makes a variety of pasta sauces that are vegan as well. I chose their basic marinara for this dish and started by simmering it and adding morning star "soysauge" and a packet of prewashed spinach. Simmer until hot and spinach mixes in..
This is my favorite local bread. You can find it at Faletti, Rainbow or most of the weekend farmers markets and even Safeway. I used the Olive Batard to create garlic bread.
Slice it, top it with olive oil or Earth Balance spread and add chopped garlic and salt and toast.
All of the ingredients make for one of the most simple decadent vegan meals in minutes.
I often worry that things I create may not be worth posting to the blog it if they aren't complicated, but I often read simple recipes and am inspired.
Next time I would like to try a sage brown "butter" sauce with this ravioli and Acme's walnut bread.
Time to dream up dessert.
