Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli topped with Asparagus and Tomato Sauté with Fresh Crab and Parmesan

Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli topped with Asparagus and Tomato Sauté with Fresh Crab and Parmesan

by Pam on March 10, 2014

We spent the weekend camping in our motor home at the coast. Unfortunately, we endured a massive rain and wind storm that kept us cooped up in the motor home instead of playing on the beach. We made the best of it by playing games, watching movies, and reading. On Sunday, we headed to Garibaldi for the crab races. Sadly, the races ended early and they were packing up to leave. My friend Currié managed to get us an amazing deal on whole cleaned & cooked dungeness crab. Once we got home, I steamed some of the crab a bit to until warm then served it with melted garlic butter and lemon. The crab was so tasty we didn’t need the butter! Fresh crab is hard to beat!

There was plenty of leftover crab meat so I decided to throw together this pasta for dinner. A simple veggie sauté with crushed red pepper flakes, garlic, olive oil, and a bit of butter tossed together with spinach and ricotta ravioli topped with crab meat, Parmesan, Pine Nuts, and basil. It was a delicious dinner that we all devoured. I still have crab leftover so I foresee eggs, asparagus, and crab in my future.

Cook the ravioli in salted water, per instructions. Drain ravioli reserving 3 tablespoons of pasta water.

While the ravioli is cooking, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the asparagus and grape tomatoes along with the crushed red pepper flakes then cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes, until the asparagus is crisp tender and the tomatoes are ready to burst. Add the minced garlic, remaining olive oil, and butter. Toss to mix well then gently add the cooked & drained ravioli to the pan along with a few tablespoons of pasta water; season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Pour into a serving bowl then top with shredded Parmesan, toasted pine nuts, and fresh basil. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

Linguini with Sautéed Scallops and Peas

Scallops are great for a quick meal any night of the week and are a real treat. They can be quickly sautéed, then added to salads like this Scallop and Baby Green Citrus Mojo Salad[1], and this delicious Scallop and Grapefruit Salad[2], but once in a while when I want something more substantial, I love it with pasta. Here I tossed it with some pasta and peas, for a dinner that took less than 15 minutes to make.

I love sea scallops and it takes very little effort to get delicious results. For best flavor seek out the freshest scallops. Before cooking remove the small, tough muscle attached to the side. You can easily double this recipe for four servings.

Linguini with Sautéed Scallops and Peas

Servings: 2 Size: 1 cup pasta and 3 scallops Old Points: 7 pts Points+: 9 pts  
Calories: 374Fat: 6.5 g Protein: 27 g Carb: 56 g Fiber: 9 g • Sugar: 8
Sodium: 261 mg (without salt) Cholest: 40 mg

Ingredients:
 

  • 4 oz linguini, whole wheat or low carb
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp extra virgin oil
  • 1 tesp butter
  • 6 large sea scallops, cleaned
  • course salt
  • ground pepper

Directions:

Cook pasta in a medium pot of boiling salted water until al dente, according to package instructions adding the peas to the boiling pasta water 4 minutes before finished. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water before draining, drain the pasta and return to pot. Add parsley and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Stir, adding reserved pasta water a little at a time. Adjust salt and pepper, to taste.

Meanwhile while the pasta is cooking, season the scallops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium flame. Cook scallops until browned on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip; cook until opaque throughout, about 30 to 60 seconds more, while their centers are still slightly translucent (you can check this
by viewing them from the side). Be careful not to overcook or they will become tough. Serve over pasta.
