Rosemary! J. Pierpont!


With a little help from the store we had a great, simple, fast dinner tonight.

Chicken and Roasted Garlic Ravioli
w/Rosemary Cream Sauce

Rosemary Cream Sauce
1 cup heavy cream
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 TB roughly chopped rosemary

Add the three ingredients into a small saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain out rosemary and garlic. Reserve infused cream.

1 TB butter
Rosemary infused cream
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
Fresh black pepper
Pinch of salt
2 TB finely chopped rosemary

In the small saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter until it begins to spit and sputter. Pour in the cream and bring to a simmer. Bring to a heavy simmer and whisk in the Parmigiano. Season with salt and pepper. Continue whisking and allow to reduce slightly. About three minutes. Add the chopped rosemary. Simmer for one more minute. Add to pasta and toss to coat. Serve hot and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

This is the ravioli I picked up at the store. With this sauce, they were delicious! For a pre-made pasta, these little guys were great! I was very satisfied and would happily serve to guests as a first course. This package, 9 oz, is just barely two servings.

**Title of the post...that would be a reference to the musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Not the best show, but it is fun. I saw it ages ago with Ralph Macchio...the Karate Kid...he could sing! Who knew?

Very tasty, and you don't feel guilty for having a lot of cream sauce! (Not that it's good for you, but still.)
