To make the best sauce for cheese raviolis, you will need the following ingredients:

How To Make Ravioli Sauce?

Making this ravioli sauce recipe is easy by following these simple steps:

  2. Whisk in the chicken broth until no lumps remain. Pour in the half and half and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer.

What Kind Of Sauce Goes With Ravioli?

If you like creamy sauces, Alfredo sauce is great with ravioli. I like to add a bit of chopped spinach to make it more appealing. If you like tomato-based sauces, Marinara or Puttanesca are great options. Personally, I like a combination sauce like this pink sauce that is both creamy and tomatoey!

How To Serve Ravioli?

I like to begin my meal by serving a salad. Tomato, cucumber, and Onion Salad is one of my favorites. If you like to have protein with your dinner, Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken is a great option, as well as Lemon Butter Chicken and Olive Garden Chicken Marsala. If you like fish, Parmesan-crusted tilapia or Garlic Parmesan Flounder are delicious too.
