Lobster Ravioli with Saffron Cream Sauce

Everyone needs a quick but really impressive meal in their cooking arsenal. My go-to is usually ravioli; it cooks in a few minutes and all you really have to do is make an awesome sauce. You can make the meal in a half hour, and most of the ingredients are relatively easy to have on hand. (I know it’s a bit odd to have saffron threads in my spice collection but Trader Joe’s sells some that isn’t terribly expensive.) You can buy lobster ravioli if/when it goes on sale and store it in your fridge until needed.

I was pretty excited when I came across this recipe because it sounded amazing. Um, it was beyond amazing. Seriously. This is one of my favorite sauces I’ve ever made. Mmm. Ok, sorry. I should probably share it with you now.
Ingredients:
  • 1 package lobster ravioli
  • 2 tablespoons Melt buttery spread (you can use butter if you can’t find Melt)
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 2 pinches saffron threads
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives, for garnish

Make the pasta according to directions.
While waiting for the water to boil, make the sauce. Add Melt to a saute pan over medium-low heat.  Add the shallot and cook for 2-3 minutes or until translucent.
Add the wine, stirring until the wine evaporates, about 3 minutes.
Add the cream and saffron, lower heat and simmer.
Cook until the sauce has reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
Add the cooked ravioli to the saute pan and stir to coat.
Add the ravioli to a plate and spoon with more sauce. Garnish with a little cayenne pepper if you like some heat and some chives.

The saffron turns the cream sauce a wonderful light yellow color and can be tasted throughout the dish.

It works SO well with the lobster, who knew? I strongly suggest a little sprinkle of cayenne, the little bit of spice brings out all of the other flavors.

I made this for my boyfriend and when I walked away after finishing my ravioli, I caught him spooning out my extra sauce and just eating it. That’s right. (Not that I blame him).
