Is there anything better than a delicious bowl of ravioli for dinner? And on the Monday following the long July 4th weekend?

Probably not. This really is the dinner you need tonight. And the good news is that it’s easy enough to make any night of the week, even on a busy Monday. Plus, if you happen to have a summer garden growing, some corn in your fridge, and ravioli stashed in the freezer, you might even have all of the ingredients on hand.

OK, I realize that probably only a select handful of you will have these ingredients on hand. But for me, these are some of my “summer staples”. Either way, this ravioli is worth hitting up the market to pick up fresh ingredients. I really can’t begin to describe just how good this simple summer dinner is.

Every bite truly melts in your mouth and is layered with fresh summer ingredients…simple, easy, and SO GOOD!

So let’s talk details…

On this browned garlic butter creamed corn cheese ravioli. My ravioli are homemade because we don’t have a Trader Joe’s here. And while we do have options at Whole Food, I actually really love making homemade ravioli. We’ve been having a lot of summer afternoon storms, so I’ve found some comfort in rolling out the sheets of pasta dough, stuffing them with my favorite mix of cheeses, and then sealing them up into cute little cheese-filled ravioli.

Whenever I make homemade ravioli, I always make enough to stash at least one batch in the freezer for quick and easy weeknight dinners.

All that said, I get that most of us don’t want to make fresh ravioli on a Monday. Therefore, I recommend finding a simple cheese ravioli…something with a creamy ricotta would be delicious. But really just pick your favorite variety.

PS. I am sharing the ravioli recipe below too, just in case any of you might like to use it!

And now, onto the rest.

Specifically this garlicky browned butter corn in an extra creamy white wine pan sauce. It’s delicious.

Since it’s summer and it’s super hot, I wanted to create a recipe that’s quick, simple, easy, requires no oven, and is still delicious.

It all starts with caramelizing the shallots and corn together until the corn just starts to take on some color. At this point, toss in lots of salted butter, garlic, and herbs and continue to cook until the butter is turning golden, and the corn is crisping on the edges.

Now, this next step is key, or at least to me. I LOVE spooning the crisped corn and butter over the cooked ravioli for added texture. Of course, you don’t have to do this, but the added texture and flavor is really nice.

Once you’ve done that, add a little white wine and simmer together for a few minutes. Stir in a touch of cream, plenty of parmesan, and fresh basil, and then toss in the ravioli.

And dinner is complete. Simple simple, but truly delicious. And the smells coming from the kitchen…yep, just wonderful.

So you see?

Cozy summer comfort food, my favorite! I love lighter summertime dishes, but sometimes I find the cozy recipes are still needed on summer nights. This ravioli is perfect for that.

It’s simple, but yet so full of flavors that everyone really enjoys. I love serving this ravioli with a summery side salad full of garden greens (we have arugula, lettuce, and kale this year) tomatoes and herbs. Just something basic.

I know I say this every single day, but this recipe really is so good. Hands down it’s one of my summer favorites. It’s one of those recipes that you’ll crave time and time again. And really? Corn in browned butter with garlic, thyme, plus basil…and a touch of cream?

As Asher would tell me to say, DELECTABLE.

The Recipe

Cheese Ravioli

Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded fontina cheese or crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • kosher salt black pepper
  • 1 pound fresh pasta dough (or 40 wonton wrappers)

Instructions

  1. 1. In a medium bowl, mix the ricotta, fontina cheese, parmesan, and season with salt and pepper.

    2 Roll your pasta dough into lasagna sheets. Place 1 tablespoon of filling one inch apart over half the pasta sheets. Brush around the filling with water to moisten and then fold the sheet over the fillings, pressing down to seal. Cut into squares. Be sure to keep the ravioli covered as you work to prevent them from drying out. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Alternately, you can make the ravioli in a ravioli press, or use this wonton wrapper method

    3. Freeze or use immediately as directed in recipe.
