Broccolini, tomato & spinach ravioli

Preparation 10 mins | Cooking 15 mins | Serves 4

500g fresh cheese or spinach ravioli
1 tbs olive oil
3 green onions (shallots), trimmed and thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 bunch broccolini, chopped (separate stems)
250g cherry tomatoes, halved
1½ cup tomato pasta sauce
½ cup reduced fat cream
100g baby spinach leaves
Grated parmesan, to serve

Step 1 Cook ravioli following packet directions. Rinse in cold water, drain well and set aside to dry.

Step 2 Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add green onions, garlic and broccolini stems and cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes until just crisp.

Step 3 Add flour, baking powder and cinnamon to banana mixture. Stir with a fork until just combined (don’t over mix). Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Scatter with extra oats. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cooked through when tested with a skewer. Stand in pan for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Step 4 Add broccolini florets and cherry tomatoes and cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes until tomatoes just soften. Stir in tomato pasta sauce. Cover and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, and simmer for 2 minutes. Add ravioli and cook until hot. Stir in cream and spinach. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss over low heat until spinach wilts. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve.
