Cheese Ravioli with Five-Ingredient Homemade Brown Butter Tomato Sauce

Make your own tomato sauce using only tomatoes, basil, parmesan, butter, salt and pepper. Takes less than 10 mins. Serve over ravioli. LOVE this #recipe!!

I am so, so in love with this simple, delicious pasta. And I am so excited to share the recipe with you guys today! First of all, it’s fresh, homemade, brown butter tomato sauce. You had me at brown butter. But second of all, it’s so easy. Like five-ingredient, done in 10 minutes easy. I whipped this up for us after we had been painting the office / scrapbook room all day and we were starving, and I didn’t feel like cooking, and I needed something super quick and easy to make. It’s one of those “I don’t feel like making dinner!” dinners, but it totally knocks your socks off. It is definitely going into our dinner rotation! With fresh tomatoes and basil, it’s the perfect summer meal. But it will also warm you right up on chilly nights as well! It’s fresh, filling, decadent, and divine. It’s everything I want in a pure, simple pasta. And just look how easy it is to make! :)

This incredible pasta recipe comes from the brand new Recipe Girl Cookbook written by my beautiful and talented blogging friend Lori Lange. Her blog, RecipeGirl.com, has over 2,600 of her best recipes and theme menus for entertaining and every day. And now she has her very own cookbook with brand new recipes to share! You may remember Lori from this San Diego travel post a few years ago. We had the BEST fish tacos ever on that trip and and I am still dreaming about that Midnight Madness cake! And to this day, that is one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen. Lori is an extremely talented recipe developer and her book is filled with her fabulous recipes that are tested, tried, and true.

When the butter is melted, add the cherry tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes begin to soften and burst and the butter turns brown, about 7 minutes.

After the seven minutes were up, my tomatoes were soft and perfect, but they were still mostly whole. I wanted them to be a little more saucy, so I gave them each a little mash with the back of my spatula. We loved it like this! But you could certainly leave them whole if you prefer.

Next add in the chopped basil, salt, and pepper and stir to combine.

Serve the tomato sauce over the warm ravioli and top with fresh Parmesan cheese. I used shaved Parmesan here.

I made this sauce tonight for some leftover cheese tortellini we had in the fridge, and it is AMAZING. So easy and so good. I added some fresh garlic to kick it up a notch and it was a perfect addition. I’m not really much of a cook, so if I can make this and it tastes good, anyone can make it!

We had a little sauce leftover, so we put it on Boudin Sourdough Crisps from Costco, sort of like a saucy bruschetta, and that tasted amazing too!! It was so good we didn’t want to stop eating it LOL Thank you so much for posting this recipe, it’s a permanent addition in our house :)

I had to make this today and I’m so glad I did, it’s going into my “half-hour great recipes” file. Had no cherry tomatoes so chunked up whole ones, and I browned the butter first because of the way my stovetop works. Otherwise no changes (except that the cheese-filled ravioli were tortellini in my case) and suffice it to say, it was heavenly.
