Ravioli with Spinach and Mushrooms

Looking for a super quick super tasty weeknight meal…well I have the perfect recipe for you.

This ravioli with spinach and mushrooms took me all of 20 minutes to make and it was so good!

What you need,

1 package (9oz.) of fresh ravioli, I used roasted garlic and asiago but any flavour you like would do.
3 tbsp. butter
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
8oz. button mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
8 oz. baby spinach
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the ravioli according to package directions. Drain, reserving ½ cup of the cooking water.

In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat. Stir in the panko crumbs and stir to coat. Toast until golden brown, about 3 minutes, stirring often.
Transfer crumbs to a small bowl and wipe out the skillet with a paper towel.

Return the skillet to medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper. Cook the mushrooms, stirring often, until the mushrooms are brown and tender, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
Add in the spinach and cook until it is wilted, about 2 minutes.

Add the pasta in and stir to combine, if you need to add in a little of the reserved pasta water to thin the sauce you can, I used about ¼ cup. Stir in the cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the pasta topped with the toasted breadcrumbs. 

This was delicious! The crispy breadcrumbs really made the dish!
