This is one of those dinners that just speaks of decadence and sheer sensuality. The pillows of tender cheese ravioli, swimming in a creamy white sea of garlicky, cheesy Alfredo sauce that is further enhanced by the tender sweetness of calamari strips, shrimp, and imitation crab As a note, while you can use real crab meat in this recipe, the imitation crab has a less pungent flavor that suits more palates and is less expensive to obtain, Served in a shallow pasta bowl with a couple thick slices of garlic bread, and you are as close to Mediterranean perfection as you can be on home ground.
