Lighter Ravioli ai Piselli (Ravioli and Peas)

Ravioli ai Piselli (Ravioli and Peas)

All these ingredients can be found at Trader Joe’s.

Peas, spinach and butternut squash ravioli are the stars in this classic Italian ravioli and peas dish. The butternut squash is deliciously creamy and you won’t miss the traditional high-fat cheese filling. Using creamy garlic herb Boursin cheese simplifies making of the sauce and adds a mouthwatering flavor.

1/2 container of Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs cheese
1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1/2 pack of Trader Joe’s Organic Baby Spinach, coarsely chopped to ½ pieces
Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Ravioli (found in the fresh section of the store)
1/2 cup Trader Joe’s frozen peas

Put the cheese, olive oil and spinach in a large bowl and stir.

Bring 4 quarts of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the ravioli. Bring back to a gentle boil. Continue to cook for 3 minutes or to desired tenderness. Drain.

Meanwhile put frozen peas in a small microwavable dish and heat 1-3 minutes until hot.

While the ravioli is draining, heat the bowl with the cheese and spinach in the microwave one minute, remove and stir. Add the hot ravioli and peas to the large bowl with the cheese. Season with a bit of pepper if desired. Stir gently to mix all ingredients together.
