Brought some sorrel home from the farmer’s market… and I’m thinking it would be perfect with this. Somehow. It’s lemony and green — so maybe I’d sub it in for the parsley and lemon? Dunno.

In any case, this looks like perfect spring food to me!

I made this about a week ago with some ravioli I bought at the supermarket. I didn’t think it looked like enough sauce so I doubled the amount of half and half and parmesan but kept it only one lemon. It was still very lemony in flavour, but it came out very thick and less sauce like. I should have added some more cream or milk to thin it out. The flavours were fresh but my boyfriend didn’t really like the lemon so I doubt I will make it again.

Made this last night with spinach/cheese ravioli’s bought from BJ’s. The sauce was delicious, and perfect for the 12.5 oz package of ravioli. The only problem I ran into was that the cream broke when I put the fresh lemon juice in. Taste was still wonderful, just didn’t look that appealing. I might try it next time with chicken stock instead of cream but in any case, will definitely keep using this recipe!
