Garlic Ravioli with Parsley Garlic Sauce
- Garlic ravioli:
- 4 heads garlic
- 2 ounces olive oil
- 2 ounces white wine
- 6 ounces chicken stock
- 2 ounces lemon juice
- 1 head fennel, peeled and chopped
- 1 red onion, diced
- 5 carrots, peeled and diced
- 6 artichoke bottoms, cooked and diced small
- 8 ounces ricotta
- Ravioli pasta, store bought
- Parsley and Garlic sauce:
- 2 heads garlic, peeled
- 16 ounces chicken stock
- 8 ounces heavy cream
- 8 sprigs parsley
- 4 (6-ounce) sea bass steaks
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place all the garlic cloves on a piece of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap the garlic in foil and bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove the garlic from the oven, and when cool enough to handle, squeeze the roasted garlic from the skins.
To make the ravioli, place the white wine, chicken stock, lemon juice, fennel, red onions, and carrots in a medium pan, add salt, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the artichokes, cover the pot, and simmer until the artichokes are tender.
Spread out the pasta sheets onto a working surface. Using a tablespoon, spoon the vegetable mixture onto the pasta leaving approximately 2-inches between each ravioli. Top the ravioli with another layer of pasta, and using a 4-inch cookie cutter, cut out the shapes, and seal each ravioli.
In a large pot with boiling water, cook the raviolis for approximately 6 minutes.
To make the sauce, place the garlic and chicken stock in a pan and simmer until garlic is soft. Add the cream and reduce to a thick sauce consistency. Add the parsley to the sauce and place in a blender until sauce is smooth.
In a hot skillet, sear each fillet for approximately 1 minute on each side. Season with salt and pepper.
To serve, place the raviolis on the center of the plate. Top the ravioli with the seared bass and drizzle the parsley garlic sauce around the plate.
