Fast & Easy Recipe For Spinach Ravioli With Tomato Sauce

Monday's Leftovers: Spinach Ravioli With Tomato Sauce

After discovering a ridiculous inventory of grains, pastas, and sauces while cleaning out my pantry, I've decided to focus on cooking whatever's already on hand at home.

Tonight, I plan to use leftover canned Italian plum tomatoes, chopped salami, and spinach ravioli to create a straightforward Italian dinner.
Hoping to make it a meatless Monday? Then simply omit the cured meat. Either way, with a chunky, bright sauce and just-grated cheese, the result will taste just as good as any restaurant special. Get the recipe now.

Fast & Easy Recipe for Spinach Ravioli With Tomato Sauce 2010-03-05 14:53:15


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 ounce Italian salami, finely diced, or pulsed in a food processor
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 28-ounce can San Marzano plum tomatoes, drained, juices reserved
5 or 6 fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish
Pinch of sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds frozen spinach-and-cheese ravioli
1 ounce ricotta salata or parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the salami and garlic and cook, about 1 minute. Crush the tomatoes into the pan with your hands and cook until slightly dry, about 5 minutes. Add the reserved tomato juice, basil, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Increase the heat to high and cook until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup water and reduce the heat to medium-low. Let simmer while you cook the ravioli.
  2. Add salt to the boiling water, then add the ravioli and cook as the label directs; drain. Divide the ravioli among shallow bowls, spoon the sauce on top and sprinkle with the cheese. Garnish with more basil.

Serves 4.
