Creamy Tomato Ravioli Sauce

Upgrade that store-bought ravioli to something you'd get at a restaurant with this rich and creamy tomato ravioli sauce with spinach and parmesan.

You can get it on the table in 15 minutes, and best of all, you can make it all in one pan.

This is perfect comfort food for busy weeknights! I've yet to find a store-bought pasta/ravioli sauce that tastes great. This means fresh ravioli often gets overlooked, because it's not going to match that restaurant experience.

And yet I really like the ravioli itself. So that set me on a course to make a really quick and easy, but really tasty sauce for ravioli. Best of all, you cook the ravioli in the sauce you're making - no need to boil it in a seperate pan. Italian herb mix: This is a ready-made mixture, usually consisting of oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, sage and parsley. If you can't get hold of it, then a mixture of oregano and thyme works well as a replacement.

Roasted tomatoes: I buy the ones at the deli counter (sometimes called 'sun-soaked' or 'semi-dried' tomatoes) that are bright red or orangey colour and are marinated in oil (rather than jarred sun-dried tomatoes, which are often a bit more brownish in colour). You can replace with the jar version if you like them more.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion - finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic - peeled and minced
  • 500 g (1.1lb) fresh ravioli - (use your favourite flavour)
  • 1 red bell pepper - sliced
  • ½ tsp Italian herbs
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes (red pepper flakes)
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • a pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree (paste if you're in the US)
  • 90 ml (⅓ cup) white wine
  • 100 g (3 ½ oz) roasted cherry tomato halves - (you can buy these from the deli counter)
  • 120 ml (½ cup) chicken stock
  • 90 ml (⅓ cup) double (heavy) cream
  • 90 g (3 packed cups) baby spinach
  • 50 g (½ cup) parmesan - grated
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley - finely chopped
