Since the very first time I tasted this combination of flavors in a ravioli dish, I became addicted. It has all the elements. Sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy, a little spicy and buttery. just don't think it can get any better than this dish!

    *** If you can't find butternut squash ravioli, you can always use the chicken ravioli, spinach or even the cheese ravioli and you will be just fine. I usually get mine at Sam's Club or Cub. If you are feeling energetic, you can always make your own.
