Need a sauce recommendation!

I recently bought (on an impulse) 2 packs of frozen raviolis that sounded really delicious. However, when I finally wanted to make it, it seemed to me that regular tomato-based pasta sauce didn't go with the the flavors of the ravioli, which are 1.) butternutsquash and maple syrup ravioli and 2.) feta, hazelnut and butternut squash ravioli.

I thought of making a pesto, but I'm not sure. Any recommendations? Thank you!

  • 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter, let it slowly melt - about 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage, and add 2 tablespoons of heavy cream, add 1/2 cup grated parmigiano reggiano, and mix. It should be soooo buttery and creamy, perfect for ravioli

  • Here's another;
    For the sauce:
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 large shallot, diced
    2 cups light cream
    2 tablespoons maple syrup
    1 teaspoon thyme
    salt and pepper

    For garnish:
    1 slice of bacon per person being served, cooked to desired crispness

    Melt the butter over medium high heat. Add shallots and cook 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients and lower heat to a simmer. Cook about 5 minutes.

  • Melt butter and olive oil in a pan, add chopped garlic and let get foamy. Serve over the raviol with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. I would not use tomato sauce on these flavors either.

  • With butternut squash, I recommend a butter-sage sauce. Melt some butter , add fresh chopped sage and chopped walnuts or hazelnuts and toss the ravioli. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Some goat cheese would be good also (obviously not for the goat cheese filled ones, though). If you want it creamy, add some heavy cream before tossing in the ravioli.
