Jazzed Up Ravioli

Some time ago Coco introduced me to a recipe from Real Simple Magazine entitled Ravioli With Apples and Walnuts; she had made the dish and it was very tasty! My better half enjoys meat at dinner so I thought I would jazz up this particular recipe with turkey kielbasa and also add a few other ingredients for our taste!

1 pound fresh cheese ravioli
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
1 crisp apple, sliced thinly
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup grated parmesan
My Additions:
1 green onion, sliced
1 small package sun dried tomatoes
1 small bunch asparagus, cut in thirds & blanched
1-10oz. package turkey kielbasa, sliced diagonally
2 tablespoons freshly grated lemon
crumbled feta cheese to taste (I used feta with basil & sun dried tomatoes)
Marinara Sauce to hold the mixture together

Cook ravioli according to package directions & drain. Blanch asparagus, drain and set aside. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large pan and add the walnuts and toast to perfection. Add the apple slices, asparagus, tomatoes, turkey kielbasa , parsley and lemon. Toss gently and then add the feta cheese & Marinara sauce stirring slightly to coat ravioli. Sprinkle with chopped green onion.

We will surely place this recipe in our go-to quick meal folder!!!
