If you're getting a little tired of having ravioli with tomato sauce, cream sauce or pesto, then it might be time to try something a bit different that will leave you just as satisfied. This dish features store bought ravioli (or by all means, make ravioli yourself if you feel up to it!) along with onion, mushrooms and a sauce with white wine and butter. The result is just as elegant and delicious as it sounds, plus it's pretty quick and easy to make. When it comes to the wine, buy something reasonable – don't go overboard and buy a fancy bottle, just buy something that you would like to drink alongside the meal.

4 servings


  • 1 pack of ravioli (or enough for 4 people)
  • 1 bunch of mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups of wine
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh herbs (parsley or basil)


In a sautee pan, use two tablespoons of the butter and sautee the mushrooms and the onion for about 10 minutes, or until they are soft and slightly browned. Add the garlic and cook for another couple of minutes. Then add the wine and let simmer slowly for about 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile cook the ravioli in boiling water. When the ravioli is almost done, whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the sauce, taste with salt and pepper and add the cooked ravioli to the pan. Add some fresh, chopped herbs.

Serve with some nice Parmesan or Asiago cheese and some additional freshly ground pepper. Sit down, enjoy and finish the bottle of wine alongside the meal.
