Best Sauce For Ravioli Tips
- Don’t overcook the ravioli – This is a KEY step! Overcooking the ravioli will lead to a mushy dish that isn’t appealing. So, cook the cheese ravioli until it’s al dente.
- Garnishes are fun – Not only do they taste great, but they make the mushroom ravioli cream sauce even fancier. Parmesan cheese, oregano, parsley, and some sauteed mushrooms all make fantastic garnishes.
- Tortellini works too! Want to change up this mushroom ravioli recipe? No problem, swap the ravioli for tortellini instead.
