Garlic Butter Sauce For Ravioli

Since I making a garlic butter sauce for ravioli and using spinach in the sauce as well, I knew that the flavors needed to blend. Using the homemade cheese ravioli really helped blend the ravioli butter sauce. It still needed one more thing to really make this spinach ravioli sauce pop with flavor.

Ravioli Butter Sauce

Lemon was what I needed for this ravioli butter sauce. Lemon just makes this spinach ravioli sauce sing with flavor. My sauteed ravioli was the light ravioli dish I was craving.


Ravioli Cream Sauce

Why didn’t I just make a ravioli cream sauce instead of using a garlic butter sauce for pasta? I love cream sauce, but I wanted a light ravioli sauce. A ravioli cream sauce can get a bit heavy so using a garlic butter sauce for ravioli was the better ravioli sauce choice!


Garlic Butter Ravioli with Spinach

Not only did my Garlic Butter Ravioli with Spinach have the lighter sauce it was full of wonderful flavor. Plus using fresh ravioli, all I had to do was pan fry the ravioli in one pan. The final verdict is ravioli butter sauce with spinach is a hit!
