This Spinach Ravioli comes in a brown mushroom cream sauce and is absolutely delicious and 100% vegetarian!

And is simmered in a savory cream cheese and tomato sauce that is made with passata tomato puree and goat cheese. 

You can always substitute the goat cheese if desired for plain or herbed cream cheese.

Let’s face it most of us had our first taste of Ravioli from a can, sorry Chef Boyardee but you are a bad representation for ravioli!

I think when we where kids it was okay.

But as adults we want healthier and have more refined tastes. Am I right? 

So here is a recipe for Ravioli made the real way!

Plus eating Ravioli from a can is like having your first tomato or egg from a can.

And we all know it just doesn’t taste the same.

So, if you are one of those people who has never tried fresh Ravioli.

Then you in for a surprise because this spinach ravioli tastes nothing like the canned stuff. 

To make this dish all you will need is one large cooking pot and a bunch of spinach and mushrooms.

Since ravioli pasta is not starchy at all this will cook fully all together in that creamy sauce.

HOW TO MAKE SPINACH RAVIOLI

  • Start with fresh spinach!

SPINACH FOR THE RAVIOLI

  • Then add 2 tbsp of olive oil to a medium sized saucepan along with half a chopped white onion and sliced mushrooms.
  • Saute along with the spices till tender, then pour in the cream and simmer for one minute before adding in the pasta sauce.
  • Simmer the sauce for 5 minutes before adding in the herbed goat cheese, once melted add in the fresh spinach.
  • Allow the spinach to wilt fully before adding in the Ravioli.
  • Simmer till the Ravioli is cooked and fork tender, remove from the heat allow the pasta to sit for a few minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Notes: You may substitute the goat cheese with plain or herbed cream cheese if desired. Thanks to the passata tomato sauce and cream addition.

WHAT IS PASSATA SAUCE

According to Wikipedia. “Tomato passata” is the base for all Italian tomato sauces.

It is uncooked tomato puree without seeds or skins which is seasoned liberally with salt, bottled and preserved to be used in sauce dishes throughout the year. Essentially, it is tomato sauce in its rawest form.

That being said, it’s one of my favorite tomato ingredients. And we will cook it down some prior to adding any ravioli pasta too it.  

IS SPINACH RAVIOLI HEALTHY

Yes, however most pasta recipes do have high carbs and calories. When comparing to canned ravioli this recipe is defiantly healthy as we are using fresh ingredient such as spinach and mushrooms!

WHAT GOES WITH SPINACH RAVIOLI

A glass of white wine or white grape juice!
