Brussels Sprouts & Caramelized Onion Ravioli with Brown Butter

Ravioli make for a super speedy and satisfyingly delicious weeknight supper. Awhile back I made Giada's Cheese Ravioli with Balsamic Brown Butter and I fell in love. It is a dish that has been repeated over and over again ever since. I even wrote a letter about it.

I absolutely love that meal and thought it was perfect just as it was until I discovered Trader Joe's Brussels Sprouts & Caramelized Onion Ravioli. This ravioli, my friends, is the stuff of dreams. It is cheesy and creamy with the perfect balance of Brussels sprouts and caramelized onions and it goes EVEN BETTER with the brown butter, walnuts, and Parmesan.

It is quite simply a masterpiece! If you can still find this ravioli at Trader Joe's I encourage you to grab as many packages as possible and give this a go. If you love these flavors then you will LOVE this dish!

by Giada De Laurentiis
Serves 4

18 to 20 ounces store-bought ravioli
6 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper, to taste
1/3 cup walnuts
Parmesan cheese, to taste (1/4 cup, or more)
*Optional: Add a splash of Balsamic vinegar to the brown butter if you like!

Bring a medium saucepan to boil and cook the ravioli according to package directions. Drain and set ravioli aside.

In a medium skillet add the butter and walnuts and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter begins to foam. This should take about 2-3 minutes. At this point, the walnuts will be toasted and the butter should be browned. If not, cook the butter another minute. Do not overcook or the butter and walnuts will burn.

Add the ravioli into the brown butter and mix carefully. Add in the Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.


  1. This ravioli has the most unusual green strips of brussels sprouts. Hard to pass this up. Thanks for the tips.

  2. The ravioli sounds wonderful! I can either make my own, or wait until I'm back in the US to visit Trader Joes. What to do...what to do...
