mushroom ravioli with a roasted red pepper sauce


shell loves mushroom ravioli.. i sent her to the store the other day and she called and said she found some mushroom ravioli and could we have it for dinner.. i hadn't really planned a dinner for the that evening and had just seen this recipe here... and thought with a few tweaks it would be great over mushroom and cheese ravioli.. and i was not wrong.. the sauce was tangy from the yogurt, a little bit spicy from the crushed red pepper and so flavorful from the red peppers.. basically exactly what you would want served over mushroom and cheese ravioli... it would be great over pasta with some hot italian sausage too.. {well that's my opinion..} it was easy, quick and delicious.. serve with a salad and maybe some garlic toast.. perfect week night meal..
