Mushroom Ravioli with Balsamic Reduction Glaze

My original plan for Sunday evening was to have dinner at a local pizzeria.  After spending a day switching my kids bedrooms I looked a wreck and was too tired to fix myself up.  I think a day of dusting, vacuuming, washing bedding and moving furniture will wear anyone out.  At about 5:30pm I looked in the fridge hoping for something more inspired than grilled cheese and found a package of Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti Ravioli I had recently bought.  I decided to try a balsamic reduction to go with it and found it to be surprisingly easy and tasty.  A good combination!  When making a reduction one is supposed to use a high quality vinegar.  As usual, I did not follow that rule.  I had Publix Balsamic Vinegar and that’s what I used.  It came out fine, but I’m certain it would improve with a higher quality product.  Last, there was a little leftover reduction which I refrigerated in an airtight container and will use as a salad dressing later this week!

Ingredients

1 9 oz package Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti Ravioli (found in refrigerator section of grocery store)

1 cup balsamic vinegar

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

¼ cup finely chopped walnuts

A few turns of McCormick Italian Herb Seasoning Grinder

Fresh ground pepper to taste

1 pinch sugar (optional)

Directions

Continue at a light boil until reduced to a syrup like consistency, add sugar if desired

Continue stirring

Add seasoning and olive oil and reduce heat to low setting for a few minutes

Toss the pasta with the vinegar reduction

Once plated sprinkle with chopped walnuts and serve

  3. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am concerned about
    switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
