Easy Cheese Ravioli with Pesto Sauce.  Round ravioli filled with ricotta cheese, topped with a drizzle of fresh basil sauce, and finished off with some grated Parmesan cheese helps get dinner to the table in a snap!

I realized I still had some fresh pesto sauce I made the other day.   With a box of frozen homemade cheese ravioli in the freezer, I quickly remembered our favorite pasta dish our mom always made for a quick dinner!   It was her cheese ravioli with pesto sauce.

She always made this dish during the summer months, using her fresh basil from her garden. And still today our kids love this cheese ravioli with pesto sauce as much as we did.

 

 

 

This dish is so simple, nothing complicated, and there really isn’t a recipe for this dish.  In fact I didn’t measure anything either.

As long as you have the pesto sauce already made, then you need to only take out your frozen raviolis.

 

Simply take a package or box of any large round ravioli.  We prefer the ones filled with ricotta cheese, or four cheeses.  Boil them in a large pot of water until they are perfectly al-dente; then drain and transfer a few at a time to a pasta plate.

Drizzle with some fresh basil pesto sauce on top, and serve with grated Parmesan cheese at the table.  Easy-peasy!!

 

 

 

Delicious and super Easy Cheese Ravioli with Pesto Sauce is ready in no time!  As a friend once said, “simple and nostalgic always wins!”

Enjoy!

Here’s a GREAT Tip:  Always remove frozen ravioli from freezer, placing onto a large plate or tray and allow them to defrost at room temperature for about 10 minutes before going into the boiling water.  This will ensure they won’t open, break or fall apart while cooking.

 

 

 

Ingredients for Easy Cheese Ravioli with Pesto Sauce:

  • 1 package or box of frozen large round Cheese Ravioli

  • jar of fresh basil pesto sauce

  • Reggiano-Parmigiano grated cheese for the table

Bring a large pot of water to boil.  Add some salt to the water, about 1 teaspoon.

Add the ravioli and cook according to the directions on the package, or until the ravioli is “al-dente.”

Drain, and place about 3 to 4 ravioli’s onto each serving dish or plate.

Drizzle or spread about 1 to 2 tablespoons of pesto sauce over the ravioli.  You can add as much or as little of pesto sauce, as you desire.

Serve immediately with some grated Parmesan cheese at the table.

Yields: 3 to 4 servings

    That looks so delicious! I wish my basil was a little more prolific this year – I'll have to check the farmers' market next time I'm there.

      Ours too for some reason, leaving us no choice but to buy our basil at whole foods lately.
