Pumpkin Ravioli with Sage, Brown Butter, and Toasted Walnuts

Elevate store-bought pumpkin ravioli with a sage-infused brown butter pan sauce. Lightly toasted walnuts add contrasting texture, and a squeeze of lemon juice at the end brightens and brings all the flavors to life. This is the perfect fall-inspired meal!


  • 18 ounces pumpkin ravioli
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10-12 fresh sage leaves
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon


  • Boil a large pot of water. When boiling rapidly, add a large pinch of salt and the ravioli. Cook just to al dente, according to package directions, then drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, warm a large skillet over medium heat. Add walnuts to the dry skillet and toast for 2-3 minutes, just until fragrant and lightly browned. Stir them frequently and keep a close eye to ensure they don't blacken and burn. Remove walnuts to a plate, set aside, and lightly wipe out the skillet with a paper towel or clean dishcloth.
  • Return skillet to medium heat and add the butter. Let it melt, then bubble, then begin to turn brown, swirling the pan occasionally. When the butter is medium brown with darker flecks speckled throughout, and has a nutty aroma, swirl in the olive oil. Add sage leaves, and let them sizzle in the skillet for 2-3 minutes, just until they crisp and turn dark green. With a slotted spoon or tongs, remove the crisped sage to a cutting board, and lightly chop the leaves into smaller pieces.
  • Add cooked ravioli to the skillet, and toss to coat with the brown butter sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle the walnuts and chopped sage leaves on top. Serve immediately with a squeeze of lemon juice, and/or a small lemon wedge on each plate. Enjoy!
