Ravioli Charlotte

Yes it is snowing. It is snowing a lot. We are in blizzard conditions. A tree fell in our yard while we were eating. So if a tree falls in the forest I will hear it!

Lights are flickering while I type this... Please keep the power on!
Okay enough of the histrionics and on to dinner.

On Wednesday I stopped at the store on the way home from work because we needed cat food and the looming storm was on the horizon. I thought I had to pick up storm essentials! Oh Golden Beets! We really need those.

And those golden beets were the main component of tonight's dinner. Dinner was named after the blizzard

I sauteed some pancetta until crisp and then added the sliced beets, which had been roasted earlier in the day. I sliced up the beet greens and added them to the pan, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and a little white wine. The ravioli was boiled and then added them to the saute pan to finish cooking. I also added a bit of the pasta water to the pan.

The result was delicious. 

Ready for some snow pictures?
