“My daughters and I are total Twilight fanatics. To celebrate the release of the dvd, we all got together for dinner before watching the movie. For the entree, a recipe for some type of Mushroom Ravioli was a natural choice since this is what Bella ordered when Edward took her to dinner. After searching online, I found a casserole type recipe for ravioli that had a mushroom sauce. A salad and Topaz Dreams, named after the color of Edward's eyes, completed the meal. We thought the original recipe as written was a little on the bland side. So I went to the Italian forum asking for help with the recipe and Chef Dee514 was kind enough to give me suggestions for the recipe. I have now made the recipe incorporating her ideas and although it wasn't suggested, I did opt to leave in the container of alfredo sauce. Much better than the original recipe I had posted and I hope you'll think so too! Huge thanks and hugs to Dee514 for all her help!! :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet and cook until golden.
  2. Add mushrooms; cover the pan and cook the mushrooms for 5-10 minutes or until the juices are released.
  3. Add the shallots and garlic; saute for 5 more minutes.
  4. Add the tarragon and white wine (I used Sutter Home Chardonnay); simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Pour in the heavy cream; cook and stir on medium heat until the sauce begins to thicken.
  6. When the sauce begins to thicken, add in the alfredo sauce and nutmeg.
  7. Simmer until heated through and then gently stir in the chicken and white pepper.
  8. Cook for 5 minutes; taste and adjust spices.
  9. Simmer over low heat while cooking the ravioli.
  10. Cook the ravioli according to the package directions; drain well and transfer to either a serving dish or you can go ahead and plate the ravioli.
  11. Pour sauce over the top of the ravioli.
  12. Garnish with freshly grated parmesan before serving.
  13. Note: Although we loved the flavor of the added alfredo sauce, if you would like to omit it, the amount of white wine could be increased to 1/2 cup and the heavy cream to 1 1/2 cup.
