  • 20 ounces refrigerated cheese ravioli
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning or Herbs de Provence
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1-2 tablespoons parsley chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Boil a salted pot of water for the ravioli. Try to time the pasta being ready the same time as the sauce (the sauce will take about 8-10 minutes to make).
  • When the pasta is about 10 minutes away from being done, add the butter to a skillet over medium heat. Once it melts, sprinkle the flour in and cook for about 1-2 minutes, stirring fairly often. Let the roux turn slightly golden but not too dark.
  • Add in the garlic, followed by the wine. Let it bubble until it's reduced by half (this will happen quite fast, so keep an eye on it).
  • Whisk in the cream so the flour dissolves completely, then stir in the Italian seasoning. Cook it for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened up to your liking.
  • Stir in the parmesan cheese and take the skillet off the heat.
  • Stir in the parsley and season with salt & pepper as needed (I am generous with both).
  • Add the drained ravioli to the skillet and toss until coated (add a tablespoon or so of the hot pasta water to the sauce prior to draining it if it's thickened up too much). Serve immediately.
