Ravioli and Creamy Pesto Sauce

5 Min
15 Min

Who needs tomato sauce with their pasta when you've got a pesto alternative that tastes just as good?! This ravioli recipes is one of our favorites because it turns what would otherwise be an average recipe on its head with a fresh pesto twist. Plus, with the addition of nuts, you get an unbelievable texture combination: soft and crunchy!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 (3 ounce jar) capers, drained
  • 1 (2.82 ounce) jar pesto sauce
  • 2 (9 ounce) packages refrigerated cheese-filled ravioli, uncooked
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted (see note)

What to Do

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Cook over low heat until thoroughly heated, stirring often (do not boil).

  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Toss pasta with cream mixture, and sprinkle with pine nuts. Serve immediately.


Toasting brings out the full flavor of nuts. Just place a small amount in a dry skillet over medium heat for a few minutes, stirring often. Watch them! The smaller the pieces, the quicker they cook.
