Hello everyone! How was your Thanksgiving?? Did your Turkey turn out? What about those side dishes? I hope you all had an amazing holiday, I know I did! Anacortes is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, especially when your family lives there . Anyhoo, we’re headed into winter, so I figured we’d do one more straight up Autumn recipe before the crazy holiday season begins. How about Sage Brown Butter Sauce Butternut Squash Ravioli to round out the fall??
- 16 ounces butternut squash ravioli
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- coarse salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
- 2 tablespoons fresh sage, minced
- 3–4 extra fresh sage leaves for garnish if desired
- Cook butternut squash ravioli according to box instructions. Drain.
- Make the sauce: While cooking ravioli, melt butter in a large, preferably light colored, skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently and swirling the pot to ensure even cooking.* After about 5 minutes, the butter will start to foam up. Add the minced sage and continuing stirring and swirling the pot. Golden brown flecks, milk solids, should start to form on the bottom of the pan. Continue stirring to make sure these don’t stick and burn. When the butter is nutty in aroma and golden brown in color with plenty of flecks, about 2 more minutes, remove from heat and cool for 2 minutes.
- Slowly pour the chicken broth and whisk frequently, as the butter will foam up, until completely incorporated. Repeat this process with the cream. Be careful of splatter!
- Add the lemon juice and parmesan cheese, whisking until completely combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Stir in the cooked ravioli. Garnish with extra parmesan cheese and fried sage if desired.
