Ravioli with garlic and herb

This is an original recipe I made up inspired by a dry spice packet I purchased in Tuscany for making Pici All’aglione, which is a spicy tomato sauce.  The spice packet is a mixture of dry italian herbs and crushed red pepper. I did this in the style of making aglio e olio but added the spices to the oil when infusing the garlic with the olive oil. You want to use a high quality olive oil for the best taste!

Ravioli with garlic and herb ingredients:

1 lb cheese ravioli
2 Tablespoon high quality olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 Tablespoon dry italian herb mixture
1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese to taste

Ravioli with garlic and herb method:

This recipe is great whether you use store-bought Ravioli or make your own. See my homemade ravioli recipe here if you want to make them fresh: https://sundaywithachanceofmeatballs.com/2014/12/15/homemade-ravioli/

Cook the Ravioli per instructions. While the ravioli are cooking add two tablespoons olive oil to a medium skillet. Add the crushed red pepper, dry italian herbs and garlic cloves and simmer slowly over medium-low heat until the garlic begins to brown. This should take 5-10 mins.  Don’t let the oil get to a temp that fry the garlic-it should be a slow simmer.


Once the ravioli is cooked add them to the skillet and toss them to coat.


Transfer them to a plate and cover with fresh Parmigiano Reggiano to you taste!
