Ravioli with Apples, Walnuts and Goat cheese


Finally, I’m sharing the recipe Dan and I tried out Saturday night!  Another delicious recipe from the October issue of Real Simple.  Since I had just bought some goat cheese I decided to make a bit of a tweak.

Ravioli with Apples, Walnuts and Goat Cheese
This whole meal is a bit higher calorie than I usually like.  To rectify that I had a partial serving.  It was really tasty and I love the added punch the goat cheese added to the mixture.  Dan had it the traditional way with parm cheese and he enjoyed that quite a lot.

Ingredients:
1 pound of cheese ravioli
2 T olive oil
1/2 c walnuts-chopped
1 crisp apple cut into matchsticks
1/2 c parsley
salt and pepper
1/2 oz of goat cheese
 
Directions:
1. Cook ravioli according to directions.
 
2. In another skillet heat the oil over medium heat.  First add the walnuts and cook, stirring often, until lightly toasted and fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes.
 
3. Add the apple, parsley, goat cheese, 1/2 t salt and 1/4 t pepper and toss to combine.  Spoon over the ravioli and mix the ingredients around the ravioli.
