Need a sauce for a delicate lobster ravioli? Here's your sauce! This sauce can also be used for mushroom or butternut ravioli's with equal success. This sauce is definitely not for dieters, but shines at a formal Italian dinner where calorie counting is not heeded. Make sure you use a good parmasen cheese (not something out of a box). A nice Sauvignon Blanc is a great accompaniment to this sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a suce pan over medium heat.
  2. Add mascarpone cheese into pan after butter has melted, and stir until the mascarpone has all melted.
  3. Add the parmasean cheese at once and stir to mix off the heat (the sauce will clump up if it gets too hot with the parmasean added).
  4. Stir in the nutmeg.
  5. If needed, adjust the sauce's thickness with heavy cream.
  6. Season to taste with pepper.

Yum, what an excellent tasting sauce! Mascarpone in a savory sauce is great. A lot of people limit mascarpone to sweet recipes, which is a big mistake
