Ravioli with no cook tomato sauce

This recipe was quick and easy, it had a very comfy mild taste :)  I found it HERE on the Whole Foods site :)


1 (22-ounce) package 365 Everyday Value® Organic Spinach & Cheese Whole Wheat Ravioli

3 small ripe heirloom tomatoes, chopped

1/2 bunch spinach (about 5 ounces), stemmed and cut into thin ribbons

1/2 cup lightly packed basil leaves, cut into thin ribbons

2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add ravioli and cook, gently stirring once or twice, until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Reserve 1/3 cup of the pasta water and then drain ravioli well and transfer to a large bowl. Add tomatoes, spinach, basil, vinegar and reserved pasta water and toss gently to wilt spinach. Transfer to plates, top with pine nuts and serve.
