Mushroom Ravioli with Pork Ragu

These flavors in this Mushroom Ravioli with Pork Ragu is the comfort you crave. I got sun burnt yesterday and today is an overcast gloomy summer day. Funny how that works? So comfort food was just necessary.

Slow simmered tender pork in a ragu sauce made up of onions, carrots, roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic, Italian seasoning, tomato paste, tomato sauce and chicken stock. All day low and slow and your house will smell amazing.

Add Giovanni Rana Mushroom Ravioli and this is a complete comfort meal. I love Giovanni Rana pasta because it’s as fresh as it gets when you are buying pasta from a grocery store. Over 50 years Mr. Rana has been making this pasta so it can’t be bad. No preservatives added and absolutely delicious. In any grocery store, look for it in your deli refrigerator section.

Wine Pairing Recommendation: Go for something a little earthier like a Pinot Noir or Nebbiolo to play off the flavors of the mushroom ravioli, if you want something a little heavier to go with the pork ragu look for a Barolo or Syrah.

You can never have too much wine with this dish. Be sure to serve with your favorite bread and lots of grated parmesan. This will be the perfect family meal. Eat like true Italians. Buon Appetito!
