Ravioli with Pea Puree

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •  1 or 2 (8-ounce) packages Ravioli, prepared according to package instructions. If you only use 1 package, you may need to add some additional cooked pasta.

  • 1/2 large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint

Directions:

  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes.
  2. Add peas and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  3. Add broth, cook for 2 minutes more and then carefully transfer to blender.
  4. Add heavy cream, salt and pepper and purée until very smooth.
  5. Toss in a bowl with hot ravioli and pasta (if you are adding pasta to the mix)
  6. Arrange arugula in four wide, shallow bowls. Top with a squeeze of lemon, the sauced ravioli and mint. Serve immediately.
