We didn’t make the ravioli from scratch because we are focusing on quick and easy. If you have time and want to make homemade ravioli, go for it, but sometimes it is nice to have a bag of cheese ravioli in the freezer. There is nothing wrong with cheating a little:)

And I promise you, once you pour the lemon basil butter sauce over the ravioli, it will taste homemade. The sauce is the star in this dish!

To make the lemon basil butter sauce, we used two Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt Half Sticks. We love using half sticks because they are individually wrapped to keep the butter tasting fresher longer.

Once the butter was melted, we added shallot, lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, and basil. That is it! So simple and SO good! I mean, can you really go wrong with a butter sauce? I don’t think so! Bring on the butter:)

We drizzled the lemon basil butter sauce over the cheese ravioli and sprinkled fresh Parmesan cheese and a little more basil for garnish. The flavors are light and refreshing, which makes this recipe perfect for summertime!

We are going to plant a ton of basil in our raised herb garden so I know we will be making Cheese Ravioli with Lemon Basil Butter Sauce all summer long! It’s a winner!
