    I have some crab-filled ravioli with ricotta, parmesan and Grana Padano. Any interesting ideas for a sauce to go with?

    Sage brown butter
    Brandy cream sauce (just like vodka sauce, but brandy to deglaze)
    Tarragon cream
    Lobster chili sauce
    Artichoke pesto
    My list could go on and on... I do pastas at the restaurant i work at haha.

    If you can find Pomi brand Alfredo in the box mix it with a can of Cento white clam sauce then season to taste.  If you're not cooking too many ravioli you can cook them right in the sauce.

    The Nantua Sauce sounds wonderful.  I'm thinking of serving the ravioli with asparagus..

    The Tarragon Cream grabbed my attention, as well.

    I have pasta in one form or another (tortellini, etc.) often, so I will keep all of your yummy ideas in mind.  Thanks a bunch. :)

    If you have any mushroom ravs, i highly recommend cooking more mushrooms with garlic, shallot, thyme, a little port whine to deglaze then demi glaze. "Whisk" in a small amount of butter with your tongs off heat at the end. Of course salt and pepper. We do something similar where i work, but we add truffle pate and i sear scallops with it. It didnt like mushrooms until then.
