ISO A Sauce Idea

I picked up some fresh chicken and prosciutto ravioli while grocery shopping today.

I'm asking for ideas for a sauce to serve the ravioli with. I could just whip up one of the usual suspects but I'm hoping for a new idea for a sauce that will compliment these ravs.

Looking forward to your suggestions.

How about a cream sauce? The kind of cream sauce that southerners use for breakfast and put over biscuits. Some loose sausage meat sautéed first then make the sauce from the drippings. You just have to remember that the ravioli stuffing is going to be a bit salty, so go easy on salt for the sauce.

A sausage gravy like what you'd use with country fried steak. That's interesting. Thanks, Addie.

The Pirate said his mother-in-law used to make a marinara sauce with lots of cream in it. It was almost white, due to the cream. She used to serve it over fish dishes. But it just might be good for the prosciutto ravioli.

I have never been a big fan of prosciutto in any form. I will eat it if served to me, but I would never ask for it. So I would want a sauce I like.

I have one pasta dish I make with similar ingredients. I make a fettucini with pancetta, chicken and mushrooms, and I make it with a sundried tomato rose sauce. I use my little magic bullet blender and puree the sundried tomatoes in their oil and add that to the other ingredients like garlic, cream, a tsp of tomatoe paste, white wine and thyme. There are a few other steps but I'm sure you get the picture.....

My daughter made something similar last year. I think she got the chicken/prosciutto ravioli from Costco and they were delicious.

She browned some butter, crisped up some sage leaves in it, drizzled a little bit over the cooked ravioli, and topped it with toasted pine nuts. It was really good.

I was thinking a parsley or basil pesto would be nice with it. Or a gremolata.

Browned butter and sage, Cheryl J hit it on the head.
