The other night I was lazy and decided to make ravioli. Ravioli is a great lazy meal because the pasta takes almost no time to cook. I prefer artichoke ravioli from Trader Joe’s over cheese ravioli. There’s something about packaged ravioli and cheese that is just gross to me. Maybe the grainy way the cheese always looks?
I cook the pasta in salted water until it rises. While this is happening I start making the sauce.
I like to make all my own sauces and one of my favorites is a white wine sauce. Its really simple and quick.
I cook shallots and garlic with a bit of olive oil until they are cooked through.
Then I add 1/4 cup of white wine to the shallots and garlic and let the wine reduce. It will get cloudier. During this time I add chopped spinach to the sauce.
Once the spinach is cooked through and the wine has reduced, I take the sauce off the heat and add a 1/2 tablespoon of butter which I mix until it’s combined.
I’m very tired tonight but I am going to meet up with a good friend of mine from high school, Steve. We haven’t seen each other in a while so I am meeting him at his hotel with a bottle of one of my favorite types of wine, Bordeaux. It should be a pretty good night. Cheers!
