How good this was! The recipe is very easy and super tasty. I cooked the broccoli in the cream and added the ravioli directly in the mixture (this kind of ravioli needed only to be reheated!) and served after 3 minutes.<br/>I made I minor change to make this lighter: instead of 2 cups cream I used 1 cup cream, 1 cup milk and about 1/2 cup light fresh cheese. I can't say if this works will all kind of fresh cheese, but I know that the cheese I use works perfectly for sauces.<br/>Thanks a lot for posting this recipe.
