Perfect and Simple

I went shopping at TJ's this weekend and found some great looking lobster ravioli. Just the packaging looked amazing and I knew I had to buy it. So I threw it in my cart and bought the rest of the items I went shopping for.

We already had dinner planned for the weekend so I decided to try out the ravioli during the week and tonight was the night. After asking around on The Nest's What's Cooking board I decided on a simple browned butter sauce to pair with the ravioli. And I've been craving asparagus so I roasted some for the side.

This dish was rich and savory. The sauce complimented instead of overpowered the pasta. And the asparagus was cooked just right. Don't you just love an easy, quick meal that tastes amazing?

Lobster Ravioli in a Browned Butter Sauce
  • 1 package lobster ravioli
  • 1/4 stick of butter (2 tbsp... I think)
  • 1/6 cup of heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
Boil water on medium high. Add ravioli and cook according to package directions (5 minutes). Around 3 minutes into cooking start melting the butter in a skillet and reduce until it starts to brown. Add cooked ravioli and top with heavy pepper. Cook until the sauce reduces and thickens. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

Yum! I love the ravioli and your cream sauce is perfect since it probably doesn't overpower the ravioli!

Since you love pasta, you must try Al Dente Fettuccine! Marcella Hazan gave me recipe back in 1981 and that's when I started the business. With your cream sauce, yum. www.aldentecanoodler.com or in your local store

looks delicious. browned butter sauces are great, even w/o the cream...so if you're looking for something a tad healthier, try omitting the cream
