This Cheese Ravioli with Homemade Tomato Sauce is magnificent! It’s a super simple dinner recipe that will have your family rushing to set the table every time!



  • 2 (9-oz) packages fresh ravioli
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 cups cherry or pear tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup fine chopped fresh basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the ravioli according to package directions.
  2. While the ravioli is cooking, prepare the sauce. In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.

Season the sauce with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Serve the brown butter tomato sauce over the freshly cooked ravioli. Sprinkle individual servings with cheese.
