Shrimp Ravioli with Ricotta Herb and Lemon Zest Recipe
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup clam juice
- 3 tbls lemon juice
- 9 oz package Balducci’s Ricotta Herb and Lemon Raviolis
- 1/2 lb peeled and deveined medium shrimp
- 1/2 cup chopped parsley
- 1/4 cup chopped chives
- Zest of one lemon
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a smaller pot, heat the cream, clam juice and lemon juice to a low simmer. Simmer gently for 5 minutes. Add the fresh raviolis to the boiling water.
Add the prepared shrimp to the simmering lemon cream sauce. Stir well and add a pinch of salt and black pepper. The shrimp should cook in about the same time as the raviolis, about 4 to 5 minutes.
When the raviolis are done, drain and add to sauce. Add the herbs to the simmering lemon cream sauce and let them cook for about 1 minute. Add the lemon zest and most of the Parmesan and mix again.
Divide into servings, and top with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
