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!

How to Make Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Sugar and Sage

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare pasta as directed on package and drain.
  2. While pasta cooks, start the sauce. Have all the ingredients ready as this comes together quickly.
  3. Using a large wide sauce pan or skillet, toast pecans with cranberries on medium heat until just fragrant.
  4. Reduce heat to low, add butter and stir.
  5. Add brown sugar, salt cayenne and sage. Stir until butter is completely melted.
  6. Whisk in cream, add cooked ravioli and enjoy!
  7. *** 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.
