Trish's Raviolis with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Many people have asked me for low fat or heart healthy or dairy free recipes. Uh, yeah, how shall I put this......this recipe is NONE of those things. Clearly you wouldn't serve this everyday, but it's insanely delicious and would be perfect if you feel like a little splurge every once in a while. Trish adapted another recipe to create this wonderfully rich dish and I LOVE it! Serve it for a special occasion! Thanx Trish!

olive oil
1-2 cups mushrooms, chopped
1 shallot, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup Parmesan cheese
pinch cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
salt and pepper

Boil raviolis according to package directions. In the meantime, saute mushrooms in olive oil. Add shallots and garlic. Continue to saute until soft. Add cream and bring to a boil. Add cheese and spices. Simmer until sauce thickens slightly. Pour sauce over cooked ravioli. Serve immediately.

Try using a few different kinds of mushrooms. Use as many varieties as you like! It'll only make the sauce more flavorful. Oh, and one other thing...If you're choosing to do the low carb thing, this sauce is fabulous over sauteed chicken. Very low in carbs!
