Spring Pesto Ravioli

Our bright and fresh green pesto takes less time to make than boiling the ravioli, so you can have an incredibly tasty plate of pasta in mere moments. Simply mix the pesto ingredients in a food processor or blender, then toss with the warm pasta – yum! The chèvre, greens and hazelnuts are a terrific twist on traditional Parmesan and pine nut pesto. They taste so fantastic together it might just become your new normal.

Serves: 4
Difficulty: easy
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 5 min


1 c broccoli sprouts (fresh, full container, trimmed)*
1½ c arugula, packed
¼ c parsley
¼ c chervil
¼ c roasted garlic cloves
¼ c Market of Choice House Chèvre
¼ c toasted hazelnuts
¼ t each salt and pepper
1 c extra virgin olive oil
2 lb fresh Market of Choice Ravioli (such as Lemon and Fromage Blanc), or fresh pasta, such as fettucine


Add greens to blender with garlic. Pulse to rough paste. Add cheese, nuts, salt and pepper and blend, drizzling in oil until smooth. Serve with fresh ravioli or pasta, reserving some pasta water for the pesto sauce; simply thin pesto with enough hot pasta water to coat ravioli for best results. Plate pasta and serve with a drizzle of olive oil, more sprouts and herbs for garnish, and a sprinkle of hazelnuts and freshly ground pepper. Serve with fresh bread and more pesto on the side, as desired.

*Broccoli sprouts are germinated seeds of the broccoli plant. They look like alfalfa sprouts and have a peppery, earthy taste. You’ll find them in your Market Produce Department.
