Creativity with Ravioli

At the supermarket, a package of industrially produced food caught my eye : ravioli with Gorgonzola and walnuts.  Hmm, my hand almost reached out but my head said “I could make that”.  So all I bought was some Gorgonzola.

I reflected for a while about what kind of sauce would best accompany this dish.  Not tomato, not just butter.  I decided to use Waldorf salad as my inspiration and cooked some apples down to applesauce, then added some celery, a small shallot, salt and the seeds from one pod of cardamom.  I did not let the celery cook too long as I wanted a crunchy element.

I shelled and finely chopped ½ cup walnuts which came to about 50 grams and blended them with the 150g package of Gorgonzola.

My usual pasta, one egg per person, as much flour as it will take.

 

I had extra filling which I put aside for another day.

 

At the last minute, I added two large dollops of crème fraîche and some pepper to the sauce.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
