HelloFresh Canada Review: Creamy Mushroom Ravioli

My husband is Italian and one of his favorite meals to eat is pasta…..total shocker right?! So, for dinner last night I made him the Creamy Mushroom Ravioli from this week’s HelloFresh Canada delivery. It would have gone perfectly with a glass of red wine…..so I’m kind of sad I’m not drinking right now. Regardless, it turned out great. Let’s have a closer look…..

Creamy Mushroom Ravioli with Herby Garlic Sauce

Stuffed ravioli and slow roasted mushrooms and cauliflower combine in an herby garlic cream sauce. The flavours will dance on your tongue while you gobble up every last bit of this hearty ravioli dinner.

  • 350 g Squash Ravioli
  • 113 g Mushrooms
  • 6 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 56 g Yellow Onion
  • 6 g Garlic
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
  • 14 g Parsley and Thyme
  • 285 g Cauliflower, florets
  • 1 unit Vegetable Broth Concentrate
  • 1 tbsp Cream Cheese

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce.

Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) from the stems, then roughly chop. Halve mushrooms. Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Add cauliflower, mushrooms, thyme and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, stirring halfway through cooking, until tender, 22-24 min.

While veggies bake, add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot. (NOTE: Use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. While the water comes to a boil, finely chop parsley. Peel then thinly slice half the onion (whole onion for 4 ppl). Peel, then mince or grate garlic.

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-6 min. Add garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min.

While the onions cook, add ravioli to the pot of boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 min. Reserve 1/3 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain and return ravioli to the same pot, off heat.

Add broth concentrate, 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and reserved pasta water to the pan with the onions. Whisk , scraping up any browned bits on bottom of pan, until combined and slightly thickened, 1-2 min. Remove pan from heat. Whisk in sour cream and cream cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour creamy garlic sauce over the ravioli in the large pot, then add roasted veggies and half the parsley. Stir carefully to combine. Divide ravioli between bowls. Sprinkle Parmesan and remaining parsley over top.

Final Thoughts

As much as I love a good pasta dish, I always find ravioli a bit tricky, especially fresh ravioli. The meal itself was very easy to make, the sauce was rich and creamy, and the roasted cauliflower/mushroom mixture was a great addition. The ravioli itself fell apart slightly during the cooking process but as you can tell from the photos it still looked great. A meal like this always feels like a special treat because it’s not something we eat often. I should also mention that my husband loved it, so overall I would say that this particular HelloFresh Canada meal was a success!
