Austin Inspired – Ravioli with Sausage and Spinach

It was a quick trip to Austin this week. Our first stop was Wheatsville Coop.  They had some great fresh sausages.  I bought chorizo sausage, and some chorizo verde sausage.  I did get one other kind that was really delicious, but now I can’t remember what it was.  I had them packaged together, so no name appeared on the wrapper.

We had lunch at Kerbey Lane, and it was delicious.  I had chicken fried chicken with jalapeno gorgonzola mashed potatoes, and collard greens.  I’d mention the biscuit, but I think the baker was having an off day – it was tough.  Nina had migas, black beans, and fried red skin potato hash browns.  We left very happy.  I had the camera today, but left it in the car.  I remembered when we got our food, and it would have been cold, if I had tried to run out and get it, because we parked so far away.  I know, same old story.

After lunch, we walked over to Pasta & Co.  I bought some fresh cashew and manchego stuffed chipotle pasta ravioli.  I already had visualized a sauce with the sausages, I’d bought earlier.  And so it materialized, when I got home.  I sauteed the chorizo sausages, removed them from the pan, and cut them up.  Then, I sauteed some spinach from our garden, in the same pan.  Meanwhile, I cooked the ravioli, then tossed the sausage and ravioli with the spinach.  It was too insanely good to describe, but I did get a picture!
