Butternut squash ravioli sauce

master815k Jun 2, 2011 01:31 PM

Just bought a couple packages of Trader Joe's butternut squash ravioli for dinner tonight. Any suggestions of some kind of sauce to make on top of it? Butter, olive oil? Thanks!

    Brown butter with sage.

      Gorgonzola cream sauce.

      Pecan and parsley pesto.

      Topping of toasted pepitas is good way to add some crunch to any sauce you choose.

        Chopped fresh sage browned in butter topped with parm. Yum!

          No1. :Brown butter with fresh sage.'

          Back ups would be goat cheese based cream sauce of goat cheese combined with heavy cream (or half and half), chives and parm cheese grated into sauce. Or a marsala type cream sauce with sauted/browned onions chopped fine, heavy cream, marsala wine, and a hint of cinnamon or nutmeg sprinkled in (to accentuate the squash). Sprinkle Parm cheese on top.

          I;ve done all 3 and they are very easy-peasy as long as ingredients are on hand.

            browned butter with sage and a bit of brown sugar....lots of parm. One of our faves!

              I'm a little tired of the browned butter and sage combo these days, so I'd go with asparagus pesto, since it's seasonal.
