Tuscan Pasta with Basil Cream

***I've always been a huge fan of Southern Living magazine...I was even fortunate enough to land 2 consecutive, very competitive internships in the SL Marketing Deparment. I also love their recipes...they never disappoint!

This is probably one of the easiest dinners that I've made in a while. Going by the name, you'd think it would be complicated, but that's just not the case! It's packed with flavor, too. I think it would even be good with chicken added.***

1 (20 oz) package refrigerated 4-cheese ravioli
1 (16 oz) jar Sun-Dried Tomato Alfredo sauce
2 Tbsp. White Wine
2 Medium Fresh Tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh Basil
1/3 cup Parmesean Cheese, shredded (I used freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese)

Prepare pasta according to package directions.
Pour alfredo sauce into saucepan. Pour white wine into jar, cover tightly and shake well. Stir wine mixture into saucepan. Stir in chopped tomatoes and 1/2 cup chopped basil.

Cook over med-low heat for about 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Toss pasta into sauce and top with Parmesan cheese.

I just found your site through one of your Pinterest posts so I'm just now seeing this recipe. I, too, love this recipe from Southern Living. I add shrimp or scallops (we used to live in FL and harvested our own scallops)for a more filling dinner. The sauce is great over chicken, too. Are you vegetarian? If so, you may like some of the recipes at thegirltalks.com. She was a vegetarian for several years and eats vegan once a week.
