The easiest Valentine’s Day dinner ever – Creamy Tuscan Ravioli. Store-bought ravioli tossed in a garlicky sun-dried tomato cream sauce topped with baby spinach, basil, and parmesan cheese. Ready in less than 30 minutes!
It’s date night food, but it’s also easy enough for weeknights to throw together for the whole family.
Creamy Tuscan Ravioli. It’ll make you feel like you’re in some fancy-schmancy restaurant where you paid way too much money to eat at, only this time you didn’t, and the portions will actually going to fill you up! Tuscan sauce – you know the traditional (I use the term loosely) sun-dried tomato, garlic, and baby spinach cream sauce that was going around the internet paired with both shrimp and chicken?
Well, I’m making it a lot easier to get that on the table, by using store-bought ravioli. But that also means that you could totally make this meal carnivore-friendly by using a chicken or prosciutto stuffed ravioli. Take it in a pescatarian direction by using stuffed lobster ravioli (okay, that would be AMAZING.) And my personal favorite (my husband would totally disagree when he has the meat option) mushroom ravioli, or even spinach and ricotta. I can’t decide.
Let’s be honest, around mid-February there are a lot of significant others that get the itch to cook. I’m not talking about those that pitch in and do so regularly. I’m talking about the ones that want to do a little something for their sweetie. This is the sort of thing you can totally pull off with lots of success because 1.) it’s easy 2.) doesn’t have to involve meat, so you spare them from food poisoning (always a plus) 3.) your significant other will totally be impressed with this dish.
Check. Check. And check.
I’m no stranger to making things what they aren’t. Before I came up with this creamy Tuscan ravioli, I did a twist on chicken piccata with ravioli piccata . Briny and zingy lemon butter sauce tossed with capers, garlic, and fresh herbs. So many of you share your pictures on Instagram and loved how easy it was to make.
Consider this the second act.
Creamy Tuscan ravioli is what you get when you mash together Tuscan chicken with ravioli pasta. Tuscan ravioli is just ravioli (stuffed with just about anything you like) tossed in a creamy Tuscan inspired sun-dried tomato sauce. And instead of serving pasta on the side (which a lot of people do), we’re adding it directly to the sauce – so much better that way!
Sure! Since we’re using such a small quantity of stock anyway, feel free to save a bit of that salty pasta water and use that in place of the chicken/vegetable stock.
Fresh ravioli is easily available in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. Sometimes, they keep it near the shredded cheese and sour cream. But other times, I’ve seen it in the prepared food section as well… even though it’s not 100% prepared – a debate for another time.
I usually use mushroom ravioli (it’s my favorite) and serve it by itself for me (with protein for hubby) but you could also serve it with:
Semi-homemade creamy Tuscan ravioli is sure to wow your guests. Whether it’s for a simple but elegant Valentine’s day dinner, something to serve the family on a weeknight, or for company, you’re sure to leave the crowd wanting more!
And if you want someone else to make this for you, send them a link! Ain’t no shame in telling your S/O what you wish to to enjoy for date night!
