Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage & Brown Butter

This recipe uses store-bought ravioli for a quick and easy weeknight meal 

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage and Brown Butter

I've been traveling a lot for work, and the days that I am here, I've been so busy that it's tough to spend a lot of time making dinner when I get home. On those nights, I often take some store-bought help to whip up quick meals that require minimal clean up. One of my favorite semi-homemade meals is butternut squash ravioli with sage and brown butter sauce. I take frozen ravioli from the store and then whip up a quick sage brown butter to toss it with after it cooks. It only takes about 10 minutes to make but it tastes delicious. Add a nice side salad or roasted green veg and you have a well-balanced dinner that's faster and healthier than take-out.
