  • One 14– to 16-ounce package cheese ravioli
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup (2 ounces) walnuts, roughly chopped
  • Juice from one lemon
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the ravioli according to the package directions. Drain, reserving a half cup or so of the cooking water.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and walnuts and stir until the nuts are lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the parsley and give it all a good stir.  Drizzle in enough of the reserved cooking water to make a light sauce.
  4. Add the ravioli and toss to coat. Divide among warmed plates, sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and a little parsley and serve!
