This is really a lovely dish! I was initially concerned about the amount of garlic but roasting mellowed it out beautifully. Rather than fiddle with small triangular shapes I elected to make them in a more traditional 'ravioli' shape using a wonton wrapper as a base and another as the top. I can't think of anything I would change except perhaps use a slightly more robust pasta another time as it would be easier to handle them once cooked. On the other hand a heavier pasta might overwhelm the filling. I'll make that decision the next time I make them and there will definitely another time! I would be proud to serve these gems to company. eta. Shrimp Ravioli With Basil Cream Sauce is lovely. It is as it says, 'delicate' so if you need some kick you'll have to add it. It was perfect with a salad and would be great as an appetizer as well.
I'd likely serve them with some parmesan next time. You can build on it but it is also elegant in it's simplicity just the way it is.
Thank you so much for sharing the recipe Pebbles.
