Wild Mushroom Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter Cream 

This dinner is time-saving and simple, but it doesn’t lack quality or flavor. It is simply incredible. 

Ingredients

1 lb fresh wild mushroom ravioli  

8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter 

1 shallot, minced 

1 tsp fresh sage, chopped 

1 cup heavy cream 

½ - ¾ cup shredded parmesan cheese 

Salt and pepper, to taste 

Fresh parsley, chopped 

Directions for Ravioli

For the ravioli, bring a few quarts of salted water to a boil – and cook the ravioli according to the recommended time. 

Drain and set aside if you are not finished making the sauce by the time the ravioli are finished. 

Directions for Sauce 

Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. 

Place the shallot and stick of butter into the pan. 

Allow the butter to melt slowly over the course of a few minutes. During this time, add in the sage. 

Season with salt and pepper.

Once the butter begins to form brown bits and brown, reduce the heat to low and add in the heavy cream. 

Whisk in the heavy cream and bring the heat back to medium. 

Allow the mixture to gently bubble before adding in the cheese.

Add in the cheese, fresh parsley, adjust the seasoning to your taste, and allow the sauce to thicken. This generally takes 2-3 minutes with constant stirring. 

Adjust the seasoning if necessary. 

Add in the cooked ravioli and warm them for 1 minute. 

Serve while hot and garnish with more fresh parsley or sage. 

Enjoy!

Started out as expression practice and I ended up having so much fun! I’m really enjoying designing parallel armor for Zelda. Plus my dnd bestie stayed up with me after our skype session to wish me happy birthday today and I’m so excited to just do nothing except cook some mushrooms, draw, and play botw.

WHY IS OUR CLERIC WHACK?!?

Context: The party has just exited a goblin cave at the dead of night, finding the only alive member of a missing caravan they were searching for. The tabaxi barbarian (my character) and nearly died in a ruthless ambush in the caves, and the party in general hasn’t eaten much despite the elf cleric’s attempts to cook mushrooms (note: they were awful).

DM, to cleric: With your darkvision, you see a rustling in the bushes nearly. It is a fox.

Cleric: I take our my crossbow, load it, and aim it at the fox.

Fighter: Dude what are you-

Cleric: I shoot!

DM, chuckling: Roll to hit.

Cleric: *rolls 12*

DM: It misses, and the fox starts to run away. The party can now see this.

Fighter: WHY ARE YOU SHOOTING AT A FOX-

Cleric: I CAST SACRED FLAME! Dex save, motherfucker.

Me: THIS IS PROBABLY NOT THE MOST EFFICIENT-

DM: *rolls 18 on dexterity save*

Naturally, the party loses their shit knowing their cleric is a shit hunter as well as a shit cook.

DM: WELP, the fox fucking NYOOMS away, living to see another day.

Addendum: The cleric would later cast Sacred Flame on a random bird in the trees.
