Magic ingredients: fennel and leeks
While this plate may not make the prettiest food photo you ever saw, trust me when I say that the meal was delicious.
It's just store-bought ravioli -- shrimp and crab, in this case -- with a sauce made of sauteed mushrooms and diced fennel, along with a very few other ingredients. For our veggie side, I sauteed diced leeks with sliced Brussels sprouts.
I've found that leeks and fennel (or both in one dish) deepen and complicate the flavors of almost any savory dish.
Give them a try!
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
