Easy Cream Walnut Sauce for Ravioli

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by the80srule

I got this from my pasta cookbook, almost any kind of nut will work in this but walnuts are the one from the recipe, plus I made this with them and it was soooo good! I used an extra 4 TB olive oil instead of butter, but I'm posting it as is from the cookbook. I used jarred parmesan for convenience. This so FAST and easy, you can make this right when the ravioli is cooking, after it's done cooking, or make it ahead of time. This matches up the best with spinach ravioli and squash ravioli.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grind up the nuts in a food processor completely.
  2. Add the butter and olive oil and pulse a few times until a nice paste forms.
  3. Add the cheese and pulse 2-3 times.
  4. Add the cream gradually and keep it on a continual blend until smooth.
  5. Put the cooked ravioli onto plates, and pour equal amounts of the sauce over it. The hot ravioli will heat up the sauce on its own after a few minutes.
