15 Minute Gourmet Dinner: Butternut Squash Ravioli with Parmesan Olive Oil Sauce!

Ok, I know what you’re thinking – Butternut Squash Ravioli in 15 minutes?? Impossible. Well, technically, from scratch – it is. But my husband recently found the most AMAZING fresh ravioli at Trader Joe’s that only takes 4 minutes to cook! Pair that with my quick and easy sauce and you’ve got a gourmet dinner in 15 minutes with only 4-5 ingredients!! 🙂 Amazing I know, right? And might I add, it was DELICIOUS. Probably one of the best pre-made raviolis I’ve had. And it all starts with…

The fresh ravioli! (Ok so this is just the package but at least you know what to look for at your local Trader Joe’s 🙂 ). The other great thing about this ravioli is that it’s relatively low in calories. You can eat 2/3 of this entire package (which is one HUGE serving – 2 cups of ravioli) for only 460 calories, and you get 8g fiber and 18g protein along with it!

So here’s my super easy 15 minute dinner recipe:

Ingredients

  • Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Triangoli
  • High quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cook the ravioli according to package directions. Drain & cool.
  2. In the same pot that you cooked the ravioli in, heat a few Tbsp olive oil and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese over low heat until the cheese is melted in the olive oil
  3. Return the cooked ravioli to the pot and toss in the sauce. Serve and top with 1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

How easy is that?? My husband totally cleaned his plate he liked the ravioli so much. Doesn’t it look good?

Next time, I’ll probably try my Gorgonzola cheese sauce with it to mix things up a bit 🙂 Oh and for those of you who are interested in making butternut squash ravioli from scratch – try my Pumpkin Ravioli Recipe (you can just substitute butternut squash for the pumpkin). Hope you enjoy this quick and easy dish!

  1. I’m so glad you found this ravioli! I LOVE butternut squash ravioli but I’m kind of too lazy to make my own pasta, haha. This with your gorgonzola sauce sounds perfect. I’m definitely making a trip to TJ this weekend.

      haha yeah, making your own from scratch is definitely a LONG process 🙂 Let me know how you like the ravioli once you try them out!

  2. Oh I know these TJ’s ravioli! They are among my favs! And I’m so glad you made such a simple “sauce”. It’s the best way to really have the ravioli taste stand out

  3. I love these ravioli’s and that sauce on top sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Oh yum, I once tried making Gnocchi to impress the husband, oh man it was like eating pasty gooey flour, so I’ll try this ravioli instead! ha!. You know what else I’d do with it? I’d saute spinach or just mix in arugula to add a veggie and some color to the dish. Yum!

      Haha that was very brave of you to try to make Gnocchi! I love the idea of sauteing spinach or arugula with this dish! Great idea – will definitely try that next time 🙂
