Red Pepper Cream Sauce

  • 2 large red bell peppers
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1/4 cup romano cheese
  • salt and pepper

 

  1. Saute garlic and shallots in a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat for 4 minutes, or until garlic begins to turn golden.  Deglaze pan with white wine.
  2. When about half of the wine has evaporated add shrimp, crab and bay scallops.  Continue cooking over medium high heat until seafood is almost done. 
  3. Combine seafood mixture with ricotta cheese, fresh parsley, and fresh basil.
  4. Scoop a teaspoon sized amount onto a wonton wrapper.  Using moistened hands, cover with another wonton wrapper and seal well against all edges.
  5. Bring a large pot of water to a slow boil and add ravioli in batches of 10.  Cook for 4-5 minutes and drain.

For the sauce…

  1. Saute red bell pepper (seeds removed) in 2 tablespoon olive oil.  Cook  for approximately 10 minutes over medium high heat.
  2. In the last 2 minutes of cooking add the garlic and basil.  Continue to saute.
  3. Add the mixture to a blender and puree until smooth.
  4. Return sauce to pan and bring to a light boil.  Stir in half and half and romano cheese.  Simmer lightly until sauce reaches desired thickness. 
  5. Serve sauce over 4-5 ravioli per plate.
