Seasonal ingredients like squash have been making cameos on restaurant menus for the last couple of months. At Angelina’s Ristorante in Bonita Springs, the butternut squash ravioli plays a starring role year-round but feels oh-so-right in the winter months.
The handmade ravioli is filled with roasted butternut squash and mascarpone, then topped with a sauce consisting of orange, sun-dried tomato, and butter. Truffle oil, arugula, and candied pecans add the finishing touches—making it rich, decadent, and comforting.
This fine-dining Italian restaurant is not only known for this award-winning dish but also for its giant wine tower, some 4,000 bottles strong.
Angelina’s Assistant General Manager Nick Kattman suggests pairing the ravioli with a crisp Soave Classico. He says, “The pretty citrus notes complement the sauce and cut through the richness perfectly.”
