Ravioli in Red Sauce with Shrimp

Don't you think Ravioli look like Chinese dumpling? For me whenever I see ravioli ,I imagine the pasta pouch fill with yummy delicious filling like pot sticker (Chinese Jiaozi) or Gyoza (Japanese version dumpling) !! I only bought fresh ravioli when there is a sale.Last weekend when I was food shopping at one 0f my favorite supermarket ,I saw ravioli on sale,so I grab a pack of cheese filling ravioli,thinking happily when I'm going to cook it.I prefer to get cheese filling rather then beef or chicken.Why? Because I wanted to add my own chicken and shrimp into the sauce!! hahaha!! As usual when I cook Italian pasta I used ready made pasta sauce in order to make my life easier..All I have to do is boil or cook the ravioli pasta before make the red sauce.It's just took me about 30 minutes to make this simple ,yet delicious chicken and shrimp cheese ravioli for our Sunday night dinner!! Viola!!


1 pack fresh cheese ravioli pasta,1 1/2 lbs,cooked1 whole boneless chicken,cut diced,about 300 gm
10 shrimp,shelled and deviened
1 jar/1 lb Italian pasta sauce(Original flavor) any brand,
1 cup chicken broth or water
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp ground black pepper powder
1/2 cup Romano grated cheese
salt to taste
3-4 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
2 tbsp olive oil


1:Prepare large stock pot with hot at high heat.When water rolling boil,add in few drop of oil and ravioli.Cook ravioli for 10 minutes or until it's floated.Remove cooked ravioli from heat.
2:Heat a large deep skillet with olive oil and garlic at medium heat.Fry garlic until fragrant,add in chicken,sugar,ground pepper,grated Romano cheese and pasta sauce.Stir the pasta until bubbly,then use large sieve to remove ravioli from stock pot into pasta sauce.
3:Cook for another 10 minutes or until it's bubbly.Check the seasoning.( I microwave shrimp for 2 minutes) or add in shrimp into the sauce for 2-3 minutes before remove from heat.Dish out ,sprinkle with grated cheese before serve warm.

I bought some pumpkin ravioli from Di Palo's when I visit NY the last time. They were not very good. Very little fillings with thick dough. I have to try out the normal supermarket brand and see what is the difference.

I just bought the one in frozen form ,come back and boil it..I think it's good as long as it's has enough filling..I never try Di Palo one..
