Pasta Di Parma with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Balsamic Reduction Sauce


This dish is a reminder of travels through Parma in the late fall, visiting Le Sorelle Picchi Ristorante and enjoying a plate pumpkin ravioli in sage brown butter. This authentic Italian recipe comes togther in a pinch for a delicious Italian meal on the fly. We combine tender vegatables with fresh garlic, sun dried tomatoes, and sweet balsamic vinegar to create a light flavorful glaze. The end result tastes so good you won't believe it only takes minutes to prepare. You can throw in some fresh corn off the cob for added crunch!
