Transfer with a slotted spoon to serving dishes and reserve ¼ cup pasta water. 6. For the sauce: Place skillet with bacon and pork drippings over medium heat. Add wine and simmer for 2 minutes, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add cream, butter, and sage. Simmer until thickened slightly, about 3-5 minutes, whisking constantly. If needed, add reserved pasta water until sauce is the consistency of thick cream. Spoon over ravioli and top with Parmesan. Instructions In a large skillet, cook the bacon until almost done. Add the garlic and continue cooking until the garlic is soft and the bacon crisp. Mash the potatoes until smooth in a large bowl. Add remaining meatball ingredients.
