Ingredients

  • 1 cup California walnuts plus more for garnish
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme stemmed, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese plus more for garnish
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 20 ounces refrigerated mushroom ravioli

Instructions

To make the walnut sauce:

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine walnuts and garlic and pulse until coarsely chopped, about 5 pulses.

  2. Add heavy cream, olive oil, and thyme and process to a coarse paste (the sauce will not be smooth). Transfer to a small bowl and stir in cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper if desired (I like 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper).

To make the ravioli:

  1. In a Dutch oven or large pot, bring 4 quarts water and 1 tablespoon salt to boil. Add ravioli and cook according to package directions, about 4 to 5 minutes.

  2. Using a skimmer, transfer ravioli to paper towels to drain (do not drain pasta cooking water). Add 4 to 6 tablespoons hot pasta cooking water to walnut sauce and stir to thin.

  3. Arrange ravioli in a large serving bowl or individual plates. Top with sauce and garnish with walnuts, fresh thyme, and more parmesan cheese.

  1. Interesting combination.  Wish my Mrs. liked mushrooms more.  I may try the sauce over some sautéed mushrooms and penne pasta.

  2. Believe it or not Meggan I still struggle for simple dinner ideas even though that’s what my blog focuses on!
    This is a great idea for using up leftover walnuts. I never know what to do with them!!
    I can imagine this would be good with walnut pesto too.
