mushroom ravioli with baby leeks, olives, Parmesan


Home late from a concert tonight.  This quickie meal is just a matter of assembling stuff, and if you’re very lucky, it’s mostly stuff already on hand.

  • Rana mushroom-filled ravioli from Eataly, quickly boiled, drained and shoved around in a broad pan in which sliced baby leeks from Rogowski Farm and Kalamata olives from Whole Foods had been briefly sautéed in olive oil, then a bit of pasta water added, the liquids emulsified, and the whole assemblage placed in shallow bowls with roughly-grated Parmesan cheese dusted on top
  • the wine was an Italian red, Rosso Piceno Colonnara 2012, from the Marche
  • the music was that of the entire two-CD set of Jordi Savall’s very frisky ‘Guerre et Paix’, which could make any meal a fest! (listen, and look at those beautiful cornetts!)
