Portabello Ravioli with Gorgonzola, Walnut and Cream Sauce

I'm so glad I finally got this photographed! I have made this dish several times and it's usually gone beore I can even whip out the camera.  I got this recipe from my friend, Carrie.  It originally came from the book, While The Pasta Cooks.  The whole concept of the book is that you can make each pasta sauce in the same amount of time it takes to cook the pasta.  Genious!!!

I usually just make this for the hubs and I since my kids don't like much on their pasta, but that gives us an excuse to eat just the two of us, like a date. 

I don't make my own ravioli, I usually grab some from Trader Joes when I go.  You don't have to use mushroom ravioli, of course, use what you like.  Heck, you don't even have to use ravioli if you prefer another pasta, but I just love the combination of the mushrooms, gorgonzola and walnuts.  Simple yet amazing. Enjoy!

Portabello Ravioli with Gorgonzola, Walnut and Cream Sauce
10-12 oz. package portabello ravioli
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2/3 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt/pepper, to taste
pinch of smoked paprika (or cayenne pepper)
4 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup heavy cream

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook ravioli (or other pasta) according to package directions.

While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a skillet and add walnuts.  Cook over medium-high heat until toasted; about 2 mintues.  Remove from heat and add crumbled cheese, heavy cream and smoked paprika.  Whisk briefly. Check for seasonings and add salt and pepper, to taste.

Drain the pasta and toss in a serving bowl with cream sauce.

Serve warm.
