Lobster Ravioli with Quick Vodka Sauce



I was hungry the other day and while searching in my freezer for something appetizing, I discovered a package of lobster ravioli from Trader Joe's. I glanced over at a pile of fresh tomatoes and knew what I'd be eating for lunch. You can obviously make your own ravioli, or use any kind you like, but this is what I used, and the sauce (although untraditional for a vodka sauce--they are usually less chunky and more pureed) was delicious! Bon appetit!

Lobster Ravioli with Quick Vodka Sauce
Serves 2

1 9-oz package lobster ravioli (Trader Joe's or other)
2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
2 tsp. olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
3 T. vodka
1 1/2 T. heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

Cook ravioli in salted boiling water according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Drizzle olive oil in a saute pan and add the garlic, cooking over medium heat. Before garlic begins to brown, add the chopped tomatoes and cook until tomatoes start to break down and form a thick sauce, a few minutes. Add vodka off the heat, return to heat and cook until alcohol evaporates, another couple minutes. Add heavy cream and season with salt and pepper and continue to cook for a few more minutes. Finally, add the lobster ravioli to the sauce and toss lightly to coat with sauce. Serve immediately with a garnish of chopped parsley if desired.
