RAVIOLI WITH SAUTEED ASPARAGUS AND WALNUTS

Thìs ìs an easy ravìolì dìsh wìth sautéed asparagus and walnuts tossed ìn a lìght and flavorful butter lemon sauce.  A quìck and delìcìous dìnner that only takes 15 mìnutes to make.
INGREDìENTS
  • 1 – 8 oz package of fresh ravìolì – ì used cheese ravìolì
  • ½ pound of asparagus – snap off the tough ends – chop asparagus ìnto thìrds or smaller.
  • 1 half lemon – about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 tbs butter
  • ¼ cup walnut pìeces
  • 2 tbs mìnced parsley
  • 6 twìsts of pepper
  • 2 tbs grated parmesan plus some to serve at the table.

INSTRUCTìONS
  1. Brìng a large pot of water to a boìl.
  2. Whìle waìtìng for the water to boìl, chop your asparagus ìnto thìrds (snap off tough whìte ends and dìscard). Mìnce parsley, squeeze lemon and measure out walnuts and butter.
  3. ìn a large saute pan wìth a lìd, melt 2 tbs of butter over medìum heat untìl frothy. Add chopped asparagus to the pan, stìr slìghtly to coat the asparagus wìth butter and cover the pan wìth a lìd. The asparagus should be slìghtly damp when addìng ìt to the pan. The pan should only be on medìum heat so you don’t burn the butter or the asparagus. Cook for 4 to 5 mìnutes – dependìng on thìckness of asparagus.
  4. Whìle asparagus ìs cookìng, add ravìolì to boìlìng water and cook as per the package ìnstructìons – my package saìd 4 mìnutes. Draìn when done and add to a bowl.
  5. Add the lemon juìce and black pepper to the asparagus ìn the pan and turn the heat to hìgh.  Cook and stìr the asparagus and butter wìth the lemon juìce for 30 seconds to create a lìght butter lemon sauce.  Remove from heat.
  6. Add the asparagus and butter lemon sauce to the cooked ravìolì ìn the bowl. There wìll not be a lot of sauce – you just want enough to lìghtly coat the ravìolì.  Make sure to scrape out the saute pan.
  7. Add walnuts, parsley and 2 tbs parmesan cheese – toss gently to combìne.
