How to make this recipe

Make your ravioli according to the package instructions, cool and set aside.

In a sauce pan, heat up your oil and sweat out your garlic, shallot, red pepper flakes as well as salt and pepper, and let that bloom.

Make your sauce + save extra in the fridge!

You can use the sauce to toss over pasta, for lasagna, to bake with zucchini, literally anything! It’s so good.
