  7. Butternut Squash Ravioli Recipe

One of the many unique things about this dish of Butternut Squash Ravioli is the Brown Sugar Glaze and Shaved Chocolate. Yes, you read that right. I know it sounds weird – Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Sugar Glaze and Shaved Chocolate? But I am telling you, it is AMAZING!

It is sweet, savory, and delicious! This is a great recipe for Valentine’s Day or for anniversaries. No need for a stand mixer, microwave, food processor, or a large pot. This is a simple recipe that only needs the oven and dinner is ready in 30 minutes.

Filling and Fabulous Butternut Squash Ravioli

When making this dish, keep in mind it is as filling as it is fabulous. Because of the sweet, slightly savory flavor, you might be surprised by how filling it really is. You can use unsweetened or semi-sweet dark baking chocolate, although we prefer the semi-sweet version.

Another great recipe that uses this same butternut squash idea is our Creamy Butternut Squash Soup. Once again it combines those sweet, savory flavors that seem synonymous with fall. Perfect!

Ingredients for Easy Butternut Squash Ravioli

Create a brown butter sauce and add the butternut squash ravioli in for extra flavor. This is a simple and easy recipe that will be a fall favorite. Once you taste this ravioli your tastebuds will be thanking you!

  • Butternut squash ravioli – Costco or Trader Joe’s has a package that is already pre-made or you can make your own homemade pasta dough ravioli.
  • Butter – In a saucepan melt the butter.
  • Brown sugar – Extra sweetness added to the butter making a brown butter sauce.
  • Parmesan cheese – Grated cheese like the powdery kind in a large canister.
  • Pine nuts – Roast these nuts in a pan until they are golden brown. Toss them on top of the ravioli as a garnish!
  • Dark chocolate – Ghiradelli is always a great choice. This is a MUST topping! You will add this at the end and makes an impeccable combination.

Health Benefits of Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is known to be an important source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is high in protein, fiber, and calcium. Helps aid vitamin C, cholesterol, and sodium levels. In addition to helping loose weight and protects against cancer, heart disease, and mental decline.

Homemade Butternut Squash Ravioli

Make your own pasta! Homemade ravioli from scratch tastes amazing and comes together perfectly. You will need to make a butternut squash puree to fill in the squared or circular pasta. Wonton wrappers can be used too.

  1. Mix together in a bowl eggs, butter, and all-purpose flour to create a dough.
  2. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. Press down using a ravioli mold to form shapes. Then add in mounds of filling! About a tablespoon will fill the middle.
  3. Boil water and use a slotted spoon to dip the ravioli in and let soften, then remove quickly. Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper to let dry. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to cook according to the recipe.

  • 1 package Butternut Squash Ravioli I can usually find it at Costco
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup grated paremsan cheese the powdery kind
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts – toasted
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate I like Ghiradelli


  • Boil the ravioli. In a seperate sauce pan combine the butter and brown sugar on medium heat til they dissolve together, then simmer until the sauce thickens (it will thin out when you stir in the ravioli).
  • Remove from heat and add the parmesan and pine nuts. Drain the ravioli and gently stir it in with the sauce.
  • Place ravioli on individual plates and top with additional parmesan cheese and grated dark chocolate. (The dark chocolate really brings out an amazing flavor to the dish, don’t skip this part!)


Storing Butternut Squash Ravioli

    This is right up my alley! I love using the premade butternut squash ravioli (I get a great one at Trader Joe’s) and the combination of pinenuts and chocolate?! Mind blown! We think alike, this is genius. And those pictures, my mouth is watering right now. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Butternut squash is one of my favorite foods to use during the fall months. The fact that you made a ravioli with it is just genius. Can’t wait to try this yummy recipe!

  4. Oh my. I imagine this being slightly sweet, but not overwhelmingly so…is that correct? Would this be eaten more like a dessert dumpling or do you serve it as a supper dish?
