Is it Tuesday already? Nah, it’s Thursday. Don’t worry, you’re not going crazy. Now you know something’s cookin’ when I post more than once a week in the summer time.

It’s pasta! Really good pasta. And a chance to win some. 

Up until this week, I had never entered a food contest. But when Pasta Prima came calling, I became weak. Ravioli stuffed with butternut squash? What about mushrooms? Or chicken and mozzarella? They would have sent me the samples regardless of whether I entered the competition, but their product is so flavorful, fresh, and good, it wasn’t too much of a struggle to create something yummy enough to submit.

I’m not, however, going to make a habit of it. Unless, of course, they want to give me a lifetime supply. And then I am in. I am so in.

Here’s my entry…which wasn’t even going to be my entry. Until Paul, who doesn’t care for mushrooms, said “Wow, Ame. That’s really good.” That was all I needed. Honestly, I loved it. Looooved it. Whether the folks at Pasta Prima agree remains to be seen. Wish me luck!

Here’s your chance to win some Pasta Prima samples…the recipe is on the house ;-)

Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Asparagus and Cream
Serves 2
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

• 1 (8 ounce) package Pasta Prima Wild Mushroom Ravioli
• 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
• 1/2 pound asparagus, rough ends removed, and cut into one inch pieces
• 2 cloves of garlic, minced
• salt and pepper
• 1/4 cup white wine
• 1 teaspoon lemon juice
• 1/4 cup veggie broth
• 1/2 cup heavy cream
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
• 2 tablespoons fresh grated parmesan

Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Cook ravioli over a gentle boil for 4-5 minutes.

In the meantime, make your sauce. In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and asparagus; season with salt and pepper. Stir for 1 minute. Turn heat up to high and add the wine; cook for 1-2 minutes until reduced slightly. Add lemon juice and veggie broth, cover and cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in cream, parsley, and parmesan cheese. Season with a touch more salt and pepper.

Pour over cooked ravioli and sprinkle with a bit of parsley and parmesan. Serve immediately.

I’d most like to try Grilled Chicken and Mozzarella Ravioli Family Size :) *Thanks* for the giveaway!


Kim August 12, 2011 at 8:08 am

I would want to try the mushroom and the lobster. I make a very simple garlic cream sauce that would be amazing with both. Or I would do a brown butter.


marcie smith August 12, 2011 at 5:50 am

I just checked out the Pasta Prmia varieties and they all look wonderful… but those Butternut Squash ravs grabbed my attn right away… would love to try them with some brown butter and sage sauce… yum for sure.


TK August 11, 2011 at 7:53 pm

The butternut squash looks so yummy and cute too!


M August 11, 2011 at 5:17 pm

i’d like to try the butternut squash ravioli!


Meister @ The Nervous Cook August 11, 2011 at 4:46 pm

These all sound great, and I love the sound of your asparagus-and-cream topping! Since I’m a sucker for butternut squash, I’d have to say the thought of Pasta Prima’s organic butternut squash ravioli had my mouth watering a little. I can imagine tossing it with some roasted broccoli and fresh Parmesan. Yum!

Grilled chicken and Mozzarella for me!


lo August 11, 2011 at 1:21 pm

Be still my beating heart. Mushrooms & cream? *swoon*
Love you, Lady.

Oh, I ‘spose I should enter to win some of that luscious pasta too, though, huh?

I’m such a sucker for mushrooms, you know I’d want the portabella ravioli, right?


Nancie Nelson August 11, 2011 at 11:33 am

First off, all three sound delicious, I love grilled chicken with mozzarella, it is my standby favorite, but with Fall around the corner, the Butternut Squash sounds sooooooooooo delish ! Since I am the poster woman for “Carbs” …..I guess I will have to try all three ! YUM!


Marriah August 11, 2011 at 11:32 am

Me, me, me Pick me!! They all look good. The chicken and mushroom looks wonderful, so does the wild mushroom and the lobster. I don’t know can I pick two? or three?


MaryAnne Williams August 11, 2011 at 11:21 am

Wow, the Grilled Chicken and Mozzarella ravioli sounds divine!


Yasmin August 11, 2011 at 10:09 am

AND, I just liked your FB page! I’m glad I found this through Foodie With Family today…


Yasmin August 11, 2011 at 10:07 am

I’ve always loved the spinach and mozzarella but I would love to try the lobster ravioli!


Joanne August 11, 2011 at 10:00 am

See to those of us who live and breathe for the days you post and hang on your every word when you DO…two posts in one week is like a godsend. so would be some of their butternut squash ravioli…fo real.


Sandi August 11, 2011 at 9:37 am

It would have to be their lobster ravioli. (Their site wouldn’t open either, FB stinks!!) Costco carries their brand. I’ve also tried the chicken & mozzarella which is also, VERY GOOD!! When we were in Vegas, we tried pumpkin ravioli, which would take your breath away!!! (It wasn’t Pasta Prima)


Libby Marshall August 11, 2011 at 9:36 am

I want to try the Butternut Squash! I love the stripes!



Sandi August 11, 2011 at 9:33 am

Good luck Amy!!!!! (the link FINALLY opened!!)


Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary August 11, 2011 at 9:00 am

Wild Mushroom please. What are you and Rebecca on the same wavelength today? Your giving away pasta, she’s giving away mushrooms! I love you both for it!!!

Now I have to go leave a message on FB cause I love pasta that much!


Jenna August 11, 2011 at 8:55 am

Mmm! That looks so good! I checked out Pasta Prima’s site and I’m torn between the wild mushroom and the butternut squash (with those funky red stripes!). I’d love to try this product. =)


Sarah August 11, 2011 at 8:54 am

I’m always a big fan of butternut squash ravioli but the wild mushroom one sounds absolutely amazing as well!


Victoria R August 11, 2011 at 8:26 am

I would love to try the Gluten Free Five Cheese ravioli. Since I have celiacs, this would be awesome! And I think my husband would love it too, which is important! :-)
