It’s here! The Prosecco Cream Sauce I raved about having when I featured my recipe for Arugula Pizza. I know you have been eagerly waiting in anticipation for this recipe, right? I sure have. This sauce is inspired by my favorite dish Lobster Ravioli with Prosecco Cream Sauce that I have almost every time we go to our favorite Italian restaurant Mangia.
This sauce is so incredibly simple to make but the flavor is phenomenal. This sauce is so good I want to drink it; but instead I’ll just enjoy the rest of the Prosecco that is left in the bottle while preparing this meal. This sauce pairs nicely with a pasta like ravioli or if you can find a lobster or seafood ravioli even better. I wouldn’t suggest it with a meat or italian sausage ravioli; keep it with cheese, spinach or seafood and you’ll be wanting seconds.
And how perfect would this meal be if you are entertaining a small gathering, like maybe one or two other couples? Not only is is so simple but it smells amazing when its cooking and your guests will think you took a lot of time to prep this. All you have to do is make the sauce; toss in some ravioli and serve with a beautiful salad and fresh bread. Voila! Dinner is served.
If you like Prosecco as much as I do; check out my Meyer Lemon Prosecco with Limoncello or my Drinks Pinterest board where I have many Prosecco cocktails I am eager to try.
