    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    From the May 2011 "Real Simple" magazine. DH and I made this quick and easy recipe for dinner tonight and thought it was a great weeknight meal. I used frozen ravioli, homemade from a local Italian bakery and used the Pecorino cheese. We did not need to use any of the reserved cooking water. Serving size says 4, but DH and I ate the whole batch ourselves.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 16 -18 ounces cheese ravioli (fresh or frozen)
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 shallot, chopped
    • 3 summer squash, thinly sliced (zucchini and or or yellow squash, about 1 1/2 lbs)
    • kosher salt and black pepper
    • 3/4 cup heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
    • 1/2 cup grated pecorino cheese, plus more for serving (2 oz, can use Parmesan)
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water; drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 3 to 4 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the squash and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper to the skillet. Cook, tossing often, until the vegetables are just beginning to soften, 4 to 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the cream and lemon zest and cook until the vegetables are tender and the cream is slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the squash mixture, Pecorino, 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking water, and 1/2 tsp salt to the pasta and toss gently to coat (add more cooking water if the pasta seems dry).
    6. 6
      Serve sprinkled with the chives and additional Pecorino.
