This is excellent...I would never have thought to combine cherries and pasta, but if fruit works so well with meat, why not? I did use Rainier cherries and think this is a good way to showcase a pricey fruit. I make my own whole-wheat ravioli and borrowed a filling recipe from CL Ravioli with Herbed Ricotta Filling, using blended cottage cheese and a bit of mascarpone in place of the ricotta. It was just as well that I decided to reduce the butter by half, as one doesn't realize until reading the recipe that half is set aside. I served this with a very simple spinach salad but would also pair it with green beans, broccoli or asparagus. I would make this again and certainly serve it to company.
Easy to make and unique. Very tasty. Good change of pace for a vegetarian meal.
