Cooking Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 250 g fresh ravioli of choice
  • 300 g mushrooms, sliced
  • 300 g spinach
  • 150 ml full fat cream (more to taste, or use ricotta for a lighter sauce)
  • 75 g parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Handful walnuts, roughly crushed
  • Pepper & Salt



Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.


In a large frying pan heat up the olive oil and add the mushrooms. Let them brown on 1 side on medium heat without moving them around too much. Flip them over and repeat on the other side, ± 6 minutes total.


Add the spinach and let it wilt, ± 1 minute.


Pour in the cream and bring to a simmer then add the parmesan cheese.


In the meantime add the ravioli to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes (or 1 minute less than the packaging mentions).


Add the lemon zest to the sauce, taste and season with pepper and salt.


Crumble the walnuts into the sauce.


Using a slotted spoon transfer the ravioli into the sauce, stir to coat, and let it simmer for another minute.


Serve and enjoy!
