Sweet Potato Ravioli with Flax Pasta
Spotted in Nella’s Test Kitchen– a flax specked, whole wheat ravioli. Whole wheat and flax, you say? Sounds pretty crunchy granola to me. Add to it a filling of mashed sweet potatoes with no butter or cheese?? Iiiiick.
Health nuts- rejoice! Skeptics, sit back and wait to be dazzled…Nella Pasta has created a delicious and healthy (no, seriously!) ravioli made with a whole wheat pasta dough packed with fiber, lingan and omega-3 rich flaxseed meal and stuffed with roasted sweet potato seasoned with salt, pepper, nutmeg and just a pinch of brown sugar. The result is a nutty, flavorful pasta with a sweet, melt-in-your-mouth filling that happens to be jam-packed with fiber, omega-3 and a number of antioxidants. We cooked up these nutritional beauties and served them with a reduced balsamic sauce and a sprinkle of parsley. Pair it with a glass of wine and cheers to better health– thanks to pasta!
