Ingredients

Directions

  1. Cook the ravioli according to the package directions. Reserve ¼ cup of the pasta water, drain the ravioli, and return them to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. Let cool, then break into pieces.
  3. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add the peas and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Gently mix the ravioli with the peas, reserved pasta water, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Sprinkle with the bacon and ricotta salata.

Quick Tip

Ricotta
Salty, dense ricotta salata is perfect for grating and shaving onto pasta. Parmesan or Pecorino Romano also works in its place.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
