Servings 2 servings



  • 9-12 ounces store-bought lobster ravioli (or homemade)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ yellow onion, finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground thyme
  • teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • chopped fresh parsley, lemon zest, grated parmesan cheese and black pepper


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil to cook the lobster ravioli according to package directions. Once the water is boiling, add ½ tablespoon of salt and the ravioli. Once the ravioli is finished cooking, reserve ½ cup of pasta water. Meanwhile, make the lemon cream sauce.
  • Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat until melted. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another minute.
  • Add in the white wine and simmer until reduced by about half, about 1-2 minutes. Add the heavy cream, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and thyme. Simmer about 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
  • Mix in the lemon juice, then the parmesan cheese and stir until melted. If needed, thin out the sauce with a little pasta water.
  • Serve the lemon cream sauce over the ravioli and garnish with fresh parsley, lemon zest and cracked black pepper.
