Did you know that today, March 20th, is National Ravioli Day?! To celebrate, friends and I recently gathered in the kitchen for a fun night making ravioli. We made the pasta from scratch and prepared a seafood ravioli made with a lump crabmeat stuffing, paired with a roasted red pepper cream sauce
It was such a great night full of laughs, stories and well, lots of delicious food we all prepared together…
Friends and I also feasted on a buffet of pasta, highlighting ravioli,generously provided by my friends at Giovanni Rana. Giovanni Rana has been making pasta for over 50 years. His philosophy is simple: be true to yourself and the things that make you happy. He learned that as a boy in the family kitchen in Veronella and he still believes that today. For him, perfect pasta comes from a passion for food and the joy of sharing that passion with the people you love.
We enjoyed a few kinds of ravioli along with Giovanni Rana sauces, making it such a quick and easy meal to prepare. Our pasta buffet included three sauces – bolognese, marinara and a pesto alfredo, in which I combined Giovanni Rana fresh basil pesto sauce with their alfredo sauce. To accompany our pastas and sauces, I also served up Italian sausage, Italian meatballs and Italian roasted chicken. There was certainly something for everyone to enjoy with our amazing spread…
If you haven’t heard of Giovanni Rana pastas and sauces, I highly recommend you scope them out at your local grocery store. They have a complete product line of several fresh pastas and sauces, making dinner easy, quick and delicious to put together. With so many offerings, you’ll want to try them all!
