  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt
  • 18 ounces fresh or frozen spinach-cheese or other ravioli
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh chives or green onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  1. In small saucepan, heat oil over low heat for 3 minutes. Add red pepper, and cook 2 minutes. Set aside.

  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook ravioli until it floats to the top, about 6 minutes for fresh. (For frozen, cook for 6 minutes after the pasta floats to the surface.) Drain, and return to the warm pot. Gently toss ravioli with flavored oil, chives, parsley, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

    This was a good change from having red sauce like we usually do. My husband liked it because it was a lot lighter this way.
