Ingredients

Crispy Ravioli Formaggi

  • 10 oz fresh cheese ravioli
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pot of boiling salted water
  • 3 tablespoon compound herb butter
  • 4 oz Portobello mushrooms, cut into ½" pieces
  • 1 oz Parmigiano-Reggiano, finely grated
  • 1 oz Pecorino-Romano, finely grated

Compound Herb Butter

  • ½ c (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sage, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper (or more to taste)

Instructions

Crispy Ravioli Formaggi

  • Preheat the oven to broil and bring a pot of salted water to a boil. 
  • Heat an ovenproof skillet to medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Add the fresh cheese ravioli to the skillet and sauté for about 3 minutes until they develop some brown spots. Use tongs to turn them after about 1-½ minutes.
  • Remove from the skillet and drop them in the pot of boiling water for about 4 minutes.
  • Drain and set aside. 
  • Using the same skillet, bring 3 tablespoon of the compound herb butter to a nice bubble over medium heat. Pay attention to not burn the butter. Adjust heat accordingly.
  • Add mushrooms and sauté in the butter for about 4 minutes.
  • Add the well-drained ravioli and half of the finely grated cheese to the pan, and gently mix.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top, place the skillet under the broiler for about 5 minutes. We like to wait until the broiler nearly burns some of the top ravioli and cheese, increasing the crispy texture and woodsy flavor.
  • Carefully remove the skillet from the oven. Let cool a few minutes and serve. Enjoy!

Compound Herb Butter

  • Grab a stick of butter (I use unsalted butter to control the seasoning better) and let it sit out at room temperature until it has softened a bit.
  • In a bowl, mash the softened butter with a fork.
  • Add all your herbs and spices, and mix everything.
  • Use either parchment paper or plastic wrap to form it into a log.
  • Keep in the freezer, ready to elevate nearly any dish in no time.
