Brown Butter and Balsamic Ravioli

Potatoes or rice?

When planning a menu and looking for a side dish, potatoes or rice are usually the first things that come to mind.

I love rice and have shared several different rice recipes with you…

Rice Pilaf

Lime Cilantro Rice

Green Chile Rice

Many of you know that I am not a big potato eater, despite being married to an Idaho Boy!  But I do have a few potato recipes I’ll eat…

Patrice’s Potatoes

Mariner’s Garlic Fries

Today I’m going to share another option to rice or potatoes.  It is actually a recipe I have shared before -it is one of the very first recipes I shared on my blog.  I did not include a picture with the recipe so figured I’d share it again with a picture this time!

This is definitely a Wilkes Family Favorite.  In fact, we usually have to count out the ravioli and divide them evenly so that no one gets more than their share!  Each time Cali has come home from college and I’ve asked her what she wants to eat the first thing she says is “Brown Butter and Balsamic Ravioli!”

I buy the chicken and cheese ravioli from Costco.  It is a quick and easy dish to prepare.  Be sure and brown the butter but don’t burn it!

Do you have a favorite side dish??

    Leigh Anne, this is day #3 that my kids and I have been stuck at home (hubby is out of town, go figure) with the snow and ice and we are running out of interesting things to eat. I have a box of frozen ravioli in the freezer that no one liked the first time I made them, and these look so yummy I’m sure everyone will like these. And I have everything!!!! THANK YOU!
