Ravioli In Spinach Pesto Sauce

Ravioli In Spinach Pesto Sauce

There have been comments on my blog being very "baking centric" and honestly the baker in me does not mind it actually ..... but to be fair to the food I cook (rarely) these days, there is more that never gets photographed and blogged about. There is all the pasta, the baked fish and all the pasta .... occasional pancakes with a maple blueberry sauce ..... I think you get the picture.

I invite you to try this one ..... its delicious, healthy and a welcome addition to your usual repertoire of sauces. And feel free to use a regular fusili or bowtie, add your favorite grilled veggies, chicken or even garlic shrimp. Its all about experimentation ..... for the carboholic in me, it will be a pack of pillowy soft gnocchi, thank you!


  • 1 pack (250 gms cheese ravioli)
  • 1 cup white sauce
  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves - blanched in boiling water for 15 seconds and ground to a bright green puree
  • Freshly grated parmigiano reggiano cheese (1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper powder
  • Salt to taste


  1. Bring plenty of water to a boil and add some salt to it. When the water is boiling vigorously, add the ravioli to it and cook as per package instructions. 
  2. In another pan, heat up the white sauce. Add the spinach puree, pesto, salt and pepper. If the consistency of the sauce is very thick, add a little chicken stock or milk to make it thinner.
  3. When the pasta is cooked, drain it and add to the sauce and cook for a couple of minutes. 
  4. Add 2/3rd of the grated cheese and stir through. Adjust seasonings if needed. 
  5. Transfer to a serving dish, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and serve hot.
So here I am .... blogging about the one recipe I've made thrice recently .... a delicious spinach pesto white sauce with Ravioli, tortellini and my all time favorite gnocchi. And I always try to make my pastas healthy so omit the cream and replace it with the white sauce in this baked vegetable recipe. I know this is not a traditional white sauce but it works for me and the guilt is much less!
