Ravioli with Tomato Sauce

Ravioli with Tomato Sauce is a simple weeknight dinner recipe for the most delicious cherry tomato sauce made using fresh tomatoes and cheese ravioli.

Ravioli with Tomato Sauce
Don't underestimate the power of a simple tomato sauce. It's suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and even meat lovers appreciate it. However, the key to an outstanding tomato sauce lies in the quality of the ingredients. By opting for high-quality ingredients, you can ensure a phenomenal end result. For this recipe, we used fresh, locally-sourced cherry tomatoes from Lušt, along with larger tomatoes for added juiciness. We also included fresh garlic, basil, and olive oil. Beyond that, there's not much else required. As for the ravioli, we made our own Ricotta Ravioli from scratch. We've just shared the recipe on our blog, and it's truly amazing. We strongly recommend making two batches, as they can be conveniently frozen and kept on hand for those hectic days. Definitely better than store-bought options.

Essential ingredients

Simple and delicious—that's what we love most, right? First, we made some homemade Ricotta Ravioli, which is divine. But when tossed in a beautiful tomato sauce, you're in for a treat—so much goodness. Here's more information about the ingredients.

Tomato - cherry tomatoes Lušt and large tomatoes create an exceptional juiciness, lightness, and freshness in this sauce.

Garlic - garlic, tomato, and basil are best friends. Use fresh garlic in this recipe.

Basil - be generous with the amount of basil in this recipe, and save some to sprinkle over the ravioli just before serving.

Oil - olive oil and tomatoes are best friends, and we used olive oil in this recipe, too. Feel free to use canola oil if you don't have it at home.

Ravioli - While we highly recommend our homemade Ricotta Ravioli , we understand that time is a precious commodity. That's why we've got you covered with a time-saving tip: feel free to use store-bought ravioli if you're in a pinch. The result will still be delicious.
