Sauce suggestions for ravioli
I'm making ravioi this weekend. It will be stuffed with a bolognese (meat, not red). I'm looking for suggestions on a sauce for the finished ravioli. My first thought is to make a basil-cream sauce. I want something to enhance the filling but not overpower it.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Good olive oil, crushed red pepper flakes, and fresh chopped basil?

Basil pesto cream or a vodka cream sauce.

Brown butter sage sauce

Brown some butter in a frying pan until you get a nice brown butter. Remove from heat, throw in 7-8 leaves of sage, a good squeeze of half a lemon, and let it sit for a few minutes. Remove the sage leaves, toss your ravioli into the butter with a bit of your ravioli water, and mix in some fresh grated parm.

Hmm—I would stuff the ravioli with ricotta and parmesan and use the Bolognese to sauce the cheese ravioli.

Otherwise, a little melted butter, so that the filling is the star of the show. Remember that simple is the hallmark of Italian cooking. Focus on just a few things on the plate....

Agreed. Made this last night. Garlic and butter chicken on angel hair with butter sage sauce.

I've been blanching broccoli and then cooking it with shallots, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Use some pasta water to turn it into a sauce. Add your pasta and simmer together for a few minutes. Remove from heat and grate some Parmesan into it.

The broccoli falls apart and turns into a sauce. So good.

That does look good. Pesto-ish if I may.

Browned butter, a little balsamic and some shaved fresh parm and black pepper. Maybe a little oregano if you really want to take it over the top.

Agree brown butter with herbs is all you need but fine fine line to burned

re: Sauce suggestions for ravioli
How long are you cooking the broccoli to make it break down that way?

Blanch only a couple minutes or so first. I actually cook the shallot/garlic before the broccoli even gets put in, then add the broccoli and it starts to break down fairly quickly. The pasta water probably assists a bit with the breaking down as well.

re: Sauce suggestions for ravioli
Well, normally you serve cheese ravioli with bolognese sauce so, a cream sauce sounds like a good direction to go in.

I like mushroom so I would make a mushroom besciamella with parmesan cheese.

Thanks. I want to go in a different direction with the stuffing on these. Bolognese will provide a big burst of flavor inside the ravioli.

It does look like I'm going with a basil cream sauce. Pivoting to a brown butter sauce is simple enough. I do butter sage sauce all the time.

Looks like brown butter sauce. The local groceries have no fresh basil.

I do a ravioli with Bolognese, but I stuff with butternut squash filling and serve with Bolognese on top.

Delicious. Had it at a restaurant in Ferrara and recreated it when I got home.

re: Sauce suggestions for ravioli
I’m wondering if your Bolognese will be too wet as a filling. Please let us know how it goes.

It’s a meat bolognese. I’ve made it enough times that I know how to fool around with the moisture level. Thanks for the kind words. I’ll take and post pics. Hope it turns out!
