Using premade or frozen ravioli makes this dish so quick to put together, which is helpful with a menu this large. I love butternut squash, especially with this simple sauce.


  • 2 9-ounce packages of butternut squash ravioli
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 20 fresh sage leaves
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 2 amaretto biscuits, crushed (optional)
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the butternut squash ravioli per package directions and drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.
  2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat, and add the sage. Add the cooked ravioli and a few tablespoons of the reserved cooking water. Toss to coat the ravioli with the creamy sauce.
  3. Transfer the ravioli and sauce to a platter and garnish with the Parmigiano-Reggiano and amaretto, if desired. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve 2 or 3 ravioli per person, depending on size.

Sanity Saver: I’m a firm believer in embellishing prepared foods or store-bought ingredients to make them special yet really take the pressure off party prep. This pasta is a perfect example.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

About Martina McBride
I am a singer/songwriter who some have praised as the "Celine Dion of Country Music" for my vocal range and big-voiced ballads. You might know some of my songs like "Concrete Angel," "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" and "A Broken Wing." I was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1995. The Country Music Association named me Female Vocalist of the Year four times and the Recording Academy has nominated me for 14 Grammy Awards. When I'm not working, I like to spend time with the special people in my life, cooking for and entertaining my family and friends.
