This recipe for pasta in a creamy tomato sauce is a hearty and delicious meal for cold days. This ravioli is made with ground turkey and has a little spicy kick!


  • 1 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb. ground sweet Italian or spicy sauce turkey sausage
  • 1 lb. Traditional Pasta Sauce
  • 14 oz. Diced petite tomatoes, drained
  • 2 tsp. Fresh Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion powder
  • 1 tsp. Black pepper
  • 1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/4 c. Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 c Romano Cheese, grated
  • 24 oz. Frozen Jumbo Four Cheese Ravioli
  • Garnish: fresh parsley, chopped and Parmesan Cheese


  1. In a large skillet on medium heat, add the olive oil. Once heated, add the divorced shallot and cook for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Next, add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant. Next, add the ground turkey sausage and cook until browned. Be sure to use a spatula to break the meat into medium-sized ground pieces—season with a pinch of salt. 
  2. In the same shallow pan, add the pasta sauce, diced tomatoes, and about ½ cup of water to the jar and shake to get more of the pasta sauce and pour into the pan. 
  3. Next, add the seasonings and herbs (i.e., fresh oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, smoked paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper). Stir and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Finally, add the heavy cream, Romano cheese, and stir.
  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the frozen ravioli and cook to package instructions. Be sure not to overcook the ravioli, the cooking process should take about 5 minutes. 
  6. Drain the ravioli and reserve a cup of pasta water. Once drained, add the ravioli to the pasta sauce and carefully stir into the sauce. Use the reserved pasta water if needed to thin out the pasta if it is too thick.
  7. Reduce the heat to low to medium and cover with a lid. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with fresh chopped parsley and grated Parmesan Cheese.
