Valentine's Day recipe - heart shaped ravioli

Some meals are worth the extra effort. Still, homemade pasta and all, this recipe is simple and is made start to finish in 30 minutes. It’s one of our favorites. Grated pear, fresh cheeses and butter, what’s not to love? From time to time, I’ll even mix up one of my own recipes. I prepared last night’s pear and pecorino ravioli in a browned butter sauce and the nutty flavor was the perfect addition for a brisk evening. Make it even more lovely for a Valentine’s Day dinner by cutting your ravioli in hearts.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 bartlett pear
  • 8 oz pecorino romano
  • 1.5 Tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 48 wonton wrappers may substitute 1/2 lb pasta
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 2 Tbsp parmesan fresh grated
  • pepper fresh cracked

Instructions
 

  • Bring a large pot of water to boil & reduce to medium.
  • Peel pear {just like you would a potato} and grate with a cheese grater into a medium bowl.
  • Add pecorino and mascarpone, stir well.
  • Spoon onto your wrappers/noodles and seal with a cookie cutter. Add raviolis to boiling water for 6 minutes.
  • In a sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat, monitoring closely. As it foams, it will become a toasty brown. As soon as you smell a nutty aroma, remove from heat. Spoon butter onto strained ravioli, leaving sediment behind. Use pasta water to dilute sauce for an even skinnier version.
  • Top with fresh cracked pepper and fresh grated parmesan.
