Creamy Sundried Tomato Ravioli Recipe

Refrigerated ravioli are a staple in my house. While I prefer homemade or fresh bought from the Italian specialty store, that is not always realistic.

There are many good brands in the grocery store which you can choose from.

There are packages of ravioli that contain fillings such as mushrooms, beef, butternut squash and spinach. I decided to use classic cheese in this recipe and top them with an easy-to-make creamy, sun-dried tomato sauce.

This is a nice light dish that is just perfect for Valentine’s Day. I will serve it with a winter salad beforehand and then save some room for dessert.

It’s not Valentine’s Day dinner without Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries or Cabernet Chocolate Pudding.

Or skip dessert and have a nice sweet cocktail after dinner. Some Boozy Peppermint Hot Chocolate will do just the trick for a sweet ending to your meal.

To make this dinner as easy as possible, I like to boil the ravioli in a large, deep frying pan. It’s easy to keep them in a single layer and there is less breakage than boiling them in a big pot.

Make sure to save a bit of pasta water to add when sautéing the sun dried tomatoes. Refrigerated ravioli cook really quick so be ready to have dinner on your table in no time!

This dish is garnished with dried herbs however fresh herbs are great to use if they are available. In the summer, I grow basil and parsley but in the winter I use dried herbs.

Either way, the ravioli have plenty of flavor. The sun-dried tomatoes give the sauce a tangy punch while light cream makes this a decadent dish.

I hope you will give this dinner a try. Try cooking this together with your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. Or any night of the week!
