Magic ingredients: fennel and leeks

While this plate may not make the prettiest food photo you ever saw, trust me when I say that the meal was delicious.
It's just store-bought ravioli -- shrimp and crab, in this case -- with a sauce made of sauteed mushrooms and diced fennel, along with a very few other ingredients. For our veggie side, I sauteed diced leeks with sliced Brussels sprouts.
I've found that leeks and fennel (or both in one dish) deepen and complicate the flavors of almost any savory dish.
Give them a try!
