With Christmas only a mere 12 days away, over the next week or so I will be sharing some of our favourite holiday recipes to make cooking over the festive season easier than ever. To start it off, Continental Noodles is bringing you holiday ravioli available in star, candy canes, Christmas trees, and snowmen shapes. The snowmen can be purchased for $12.99 (1/2 kg bag of pasta), at any of the Liberatore family’s three locations: Continental Noodles in Toronto (1664 Jane St.), and Woodbridge (830 Rowntree Dairy Road, Unit 9). As well as, Pasta Goodness in North York (602 Marlee Avenue) until Christmas (December 24th).
Continental Noodles’ holiday ravioli & sage sauce
1 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp fresh sage leaves (5 fresh leaves chopped)
1/2 cup of chopped shallots
1/4 cup white wine
1 tablespoon of flour
2 tbsp freshly grated parmesan cheese, plus a little extra to garnish
1 pinch of kosher salt to taste
Melt butter over a low heat. Once melted, add the shallots and sage, allowing to simmer for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the wine and add flour to thicken, stirring constantly until the sauce is an even consistency. Maintain at a low heat to keep warm until pasta is cooked.
Boil ravioli in a separate pot with salted water until they float to the surface, which should be approximately 3-4 minutes.
Once the ravioli has been drained, add it to the sauce pan. Add in fresh parmesan and stir until the cheese has melted. Top off the finished dish with a pinch of salt, and fresh grated parmesan cheese to garnish.
