MUSHROOM RAVIOLI WITH SPINACH

Mushroom Ravioli with Spinach – this easy meatless pasta dinner requires only 6 ingredients and 30 minutes!  Mushrooms are sauteed with spinach, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and combined with ravioli.

My family loves Italian filled pasta combined with a flavorful mixture of vegetables and mushrooms! This recipe has been inspired by my Italian ravioli which also features lots of veggies.   I used store-bought ravioli filled with 4 cheese mix.

You can use any type of ravioli to combine with mushrooms: pesto filled ravioli, cheese ravioli, spinach filled ravioli, etc.  You can even make your own ravioli from scratch if you like.  I have 2 homemade ravioli recipes on my site that I highly recommend. Try homemade ravioli with goat cheese and spinach filling and ravioli with spinach and ricotta cheese filling.

Ravioli is an Italian filled pasta.  When combined with mushrooms and veggies, it is a complete meal.  Here are some ideas of what goes well with ravioli:

  • Creamy Sauce.  Add a creamy sauce such as alfredo sauce or creamy sun-dried tomato sauce.
  • Protein.  Serve mushroom ravioli with grilled chicken, salmon and asparagus, or baked trout.  You can also serve ravioli with lamb loin chops.

Because ravioli is already rich in flavor, complement it with a lighter side dish or a salad.  Here are some ideas:

  • Salad.  Want to keep your meal meatless?   Serve simple salad with spinach or arugula.  Or, try this refreshing tomato cucumber avocado salad.
