Brown Butter Sage Butternut Squash Cheese Ravioli: Easy vegetarian weeknight meal with roasted butternut squash, butternut squash ravioli, and a brown butter sauce all topped with parmesan cheese.
One of the best things about fall is all the butternut squash.
I’m lazy and almost always buy the pre-cut and cubed squash at the grocery store…so feel free to cheat like I do. 🙂
Roasting butternut squash brings it to a whole new level.
I love the smaller pieces because they get extra caramelized and tasty.
This is one of our go to meals during the week.
We are lucky that our local grocery store makes their own pasta and that they have a butternut squash ravioli.
If you are not as lucky you can substitute cheese tortellini.
Definitely watch the butter while it is browning as it can go from brown to burnt rather quickly and no one wants that.
If you are a meat eater feel free to add some prosciutto to the mix, it will compliment the squash nicely.
