Reviews for Ravioli with Creamy Squash Sauce
Sort By :
This is very delicious! It could easily be seen on a menu of a great Italian restaurant. Not every grocery store sells frozen winter squash (it is pureed)- I had to look around and finally found it at Schnucks, Birds Eye brand. This dish needs more salt for our taste- would probably add 1 tsp next time. I did not add the walnuts because it was served as a side dish but could easily be an entree with the nuts. I also purchased frozen cheese ravioli because it was so much cheaper than the refrigerated. I boiled it according to directions on package and then added to the squash sauce. Also used fat-free skim milk instead of heavy cream to lighten it up and it was fine! Will make ove and over again!
