Portobello Mush Raviolis with sundried tomatoes Marsala sauce

Okay, I cheated here a little: I bought Portobello Mush Raviolis from Costco and prepared them according to instructions on the package, but I did make the sauce and it came out delicious....and tasted very good with these raviolis. The following recipe is good for one of the two packs of ravioli that Costco sells together. Here is the recipe for the sauce..

Rich Marsala Sauce
• 3 Tablespoons of Butter (Unsalted)
• 4 Tablespoon Olive Oil
• 3 cloves of garlic minced
• 1/2 inch piece of ginger minced
• Salt and Freshly crushed peppercorn about ½ teaspoon (To Taste)
• 1-2 bay leaves
• 1 sprig fresh thyme (1/4 tsp. dried)
• 1 White Onion (Thinly Sliced)
• 8 ozs of sliced mushroom (optional)
• 1/4 cup of All Purpose Flour
• 3/4 cup Marsala wine
• 1/4 cup red wine (Use a good table wine)
• 2 table spoon tomato paste/puree
• 2 table spoon of crushed tomatoes from can
• 2 table spoon of sun dried tomatoes (soak in water for few min when starting to make the sauce then finely chop them)
• 1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
• 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional)
• 1 cup water

• Heat the butter and Olive oil in a sauce pan.
• When heated add bay leaf, garlic, thyme, ginger peppercorn, cook for little less than 1 min then add onions.
• Sauté the sliced onions till nicely caramelized and brown (about 3-5 min).
• Add mushrooms and saute till the edges are brown.
• Add flour to it and stir constantly on low heat, until golden brown, add salt.
• Then add both crushed and chopped sundried tomatoes, tomato puree, wines and water and continue to stir, simmer for 2-3 min, go easy on tomatoes, you don't want it to be too acidic and tart.
• Add heavy cream and turn off the heat, if sauce is too thick, can add vegetable broth or more water.
• Serve on desired dish. Garnish it with chives or green onions, I served this with the Portobello mushroom ravioli and my sons just loved it.
