This Butternut Squash Ravioli is a unique twist on a classic dish. You will love all the unexpected flavor combinations.
Butternut Squash Ravioli
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! I first had this when we were living in the bay area and I fell in love. It is sweet and savory and delicious! This is a great recipe for Valentine’s Day or for anniversaries.
Filling and Fabulous
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!

How To make Butternut Squash Ravioli
- 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!)
