Arugula, roasted red pepper @ roasted garlic ravioli now what kind of sauce?

I have this fresh ravioli from a local italian market. In my excitement I didn't ask for any suggestions for sauces. With the Arugula I'm thinking I want something other than a marinara, maybe. Any great sauce ideas out there? thanks

      brown butter yum! Do think the sage might be overpowering?

    2. a sun-dried tomato sauce would work...or arugula pesto. is there cheese in the ravioli?

          OK, i think Breadcrumbs and i have you covered.

          make an arugula pesto with pine nuts or walnuts, EVOO, a bit of lemon zest, a pinch of dried chiles and *good* Parmigiano or Pecorino...and garnish the dish with crispy pancetta.

      1. oil, basil, ricotta salata, and toasted walnuts. yeah, baby.

        1. EVOO, pan-roasted pine nuts, pancetta or bacon and parmesan - I think a bit of lemon zest and chilli flakes would work well too.

          1. Everyone's suggestions sound fabulous!! In addition, you could also go with something creamy. Like a wine-laced cream sauce with lots of parmesan melted in. If you wanted to gild the lily, you could also add some chopped fresh arugula to it, & even add a few halved cherry or grape tomatoes for some color.
