Roasted Pumpkin-Apple Soup
Apples add just a hint of sweetness to this velvety pumpkin soup. Try it as a delightful first course for a special meal…………………..

Avocado and Pumpkin Salsa
Store-bought salsas are convenient and come in many varieties. However, this avocado and pumpkin salsa–one you won’t find on any grocery shelf–is worth making from scratch. Creamy avocados, fresh tomato, and canned pumpkin are jazzed up with cilantro, lime juice, and a touch of hot pepper sauce, resulting in a salsa that’s seriously delicious. Serve with baked tortilla chips or over grilled chicken breasts……………………..

Pumpkin Ravioli with Olive and Fennel Tomato Sauce
This easy ravioli recipe features exotic North African Mediterranean flavors. The sweet pumpkin takes on the fennel and oregano flavors well; the salty olives and cheese combined with acidic tomatoes and lemon balances everything out. Look for wonton wrappers in the refrigerated section of the deli………………………

Crispy Baked Ravioli with Red Pepper and Mushroom Bolognese
Legend has it that toasted ravioli originated with a St. Louis chef dropping the pasta in hot oil instead of water.

More good news: this easy vegetarian dinner takes just 35 minutes to make……….

Garden-Style Ravioli
Packaged light cheese ravioli cuts the cooking time for this pasta recipe, and helps trim fat and calories, too. Tender bell peppers, carrot strips, and tomato add fresh flavor and color to this simple 20-minute pasta dish……………

Mushroom Ravioli and Chicken Piccata
This weeknight-friendly version of classic chicken piccata calls for mushroom ravioli, but regular cheese ravioli works too. Look for presliced mushrooms to cut down on prep time, and use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken here to cut down on cook time in this fast and easy dinner……

Spicy Chicken Lasagna
Instead of spending hours at the stove making an Italian tomato sauce for your lasagna, let your slow cooker do the work. Your family will love the chicken and mushrooms in this makeover recipe of traditional lasagna………….

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Chicken Sausage and Kale
What’s the secret to making store-bought butternut squash ravioli even more delicious? Add apple-chicken sausage, tender greens and lots of caramelized onions. We add a bit of sugar to help the onions caramelize faster, but feel free to omit it (just cook the onions a bit longer if you do). Buy prewashed chopped kale to cut down on prep time. It all adds up to an easy dinner that’s ready in just 20 minutes………..

Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast this morning. Had another bout with Phantom Pains. It made for a sleepless and very long night! The Phantom Pains finally let up around 11:00 this morning. Oh how I wish there was a cure for these. Here’s a little on Phantom Pains – Phantom pain is pain that feels like it’s coming from a body part that’s no longer there. Doctors once believed this post-amputation phenomenon was a psychological problem, but experts now recognize that these real sensations originate in the spinal cord and brain. And I can tell you the pain is as if my left leg was really there, very painful. So anyway I didn’t do much of anything today. Outside its showers and thunderstorms on and off through out the day and 88 degrees. Good day to catch up on some rest and sleep, and that was my day. For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli in Tomato Sauce w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread.

 

I wanted a hot meal but one that was easy to prepare. The Chef Boyardee Cheese Ravioli doesn’t get much easier and at the same time a very tasty meal. It comes in a can and to prepare it; just empty contents into medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until hot. And it’s done! Doesn’t get much easier than that. Delicious, easy to prepare, and 1 sauce pan to clean. Nice size Ravioli, good tasting Tomato and Cheese Sauce, and love the Cheese that’s in the Ravioli. Makes a good hot meal. And it’s only 180 calories and 28 net carbs per serving. I topped it with a sprinkle of Basil and Shaved Parmesan Cheese. It’s 210 calories and 36 net carbs per serving.

 

 

I also heated up some of the RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread I had yesterday for Dinner. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – Sausage Stuffed Ravioli

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – Sausage Stuffed Ravioli. Delicious Sausage Stuffed Ravioli stuffed with Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage along with cremini mushrooms, grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesano Reggiano cheese, and green onions. Also included are recipes for the pasta dough and sage butter. You can find this recipe at the Wild Idea Buffalo website and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage along with all the other cuts of Buffalo and products. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

Sausage Stuffed Ravioli
A month ago I had the privilege of spending a couple of weeks in Italy. One of my favorite pasta dishes while I was there was a sausage and mushroom stuffed ravioli with sage butter. After about two weeks of being home I gave into my cravings and gave making homemade pasta another try. I won’t lie, it is a little tricky, but once you have the hang of it, it gets a little easier. The end result wasn’t as perfect as what I was served, but it was delicious and my family loved.
Note, I made a smaller batch, which made about 50 ravioli’s, but the recipe could easily be doubled. And, if made ahead it would be great for a crowd (but, I wouldn’t make it and have company on the same day).

Sausage Filling:
½ – pound Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage
8 – ounces cremini mushrooms, stemmed and coarse chopped
1 – cup grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesano Reggiano cheese
2 – tablespoons cream
4 – green onions, coarse chopped
2 – teaspoons olive oil
2 – teaspoons butter
1 – teaspoon black pepper

Preparation:

* In a sauté pan over medium high heat, add olive oil and butter.
* Add mushrooms and sauté for about 5 minutes.
* Crumble the Buffalo Sausage into the pan and stir into the mushrooms. Sauté until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
* Remove the pan from heat and transfer the sausage to a food processor along with the cream. Pulse process until the mixture is incorporated.
* Add the cheese and pulse process again until incorporated.
* Scrape down the sides and along the bottom to incorporate any missed pieces and add the green onions. Flash process, leaving bits of green visible.
* Remove the blade and cover until you are ready to use. You can also make this ahead and refrigerate for a later use.
Pasta Dough:
1 – cup semolina flour *I blended this flour in my smoothie blender to make a little more fine.
1 – cup high protein flour or all-purpose flour +
1 – teaspoon salt
3 – eggs, beaten
1 – tablespoon olive oil +
1 – egg white, beaten

Salt for pasta water
Sage leaves and lemon wedges for garnish

Preparation:

* Place flour and salt in a mixing bowl and stir.
* Create an impression in the center of the flour and add the eggs and oil.
* Using a dough hook, mix the ingredients together. If too stiff, add a little cold water. Cover your mixer with a dishtowel to avoid flying dough.
* Scrape the dough off of the hook occassionally and continue to beat the dough for an additional 6 minutes on low to medium low speed.
* Remove the dough and place on a floured surface. Knead the dough a few times by hand and shape into a ball. Rub with a little oil and cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes.
* Cut your dough into manageable pieces. I cut mine into 8 pieces.
* Press each piece into a rectangular shape with your hand, before running it through a pasta machine or rolling it out by hand.
* Set your pasta machine to 2, so the dough will easily pass through, yet flatten out on the first time through. Reset the dial to 5 and send the flattened pieces through again, catching the sheets with your hand as it comes through the pasta machine and pulling it forward. The dough will be very fragile.
* Lay your pasta strips on a lightly floured surface.

Assembly Preparation:

* Starting half an inch form the end of a pasta strip place half a tablespoon of filling (or desired amount). Continue down the sheet every inch on half of the pasta sheets.
* Brush the egg whites between the sausage fillings.
* Place another sheet on top of the sausage-covered sheets and press down in between the fillings.
* Cut in between the fillings with a knife and seal the edges together with a fork. *At this point you can cover the ravioli’s, refrigerate and cook at a later time.
* Bring a large pot of cold water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons of salt as the water starts to bubble (it’s an Italian thing).
* Drop Ravioli’s into the pot, adding only as many as the pot will hold without crowding them. I did about 10 at a time. Boil for two minutes and remove with slotted spoon and place on a platter. Repeat until finished.
To Serve: Place 4 to 5 Ravioli’s on each plate, and drizzle with Sage Butter. Garnish with fried sage leaves, slivers of cheese, and lemon.

Sage Butter: In a saucepan over medium heat, add 1 – stick salted butter and 2 small bundles of fresh sage leaves or about 1/3 cup fresh sage leaves. Allow butter and leaves to simmer, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat if needed. Remove butter from heat until needed. Remove leaves and drizzle over the pasta.
