"This recipe is for a sweet 'sage' cream sauce that we serve over butternut squash ravioli. This sauce has a unique taste that we first tried at a local Italian restaurant. This is our version of their sage cream sauce (even though we don't use sage in our recipe). It is basically all the sweetest tastes of Thanksgiving in a ravioli dish. If you prefer a thinner sauce, add a little more cream."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
salt and ground black pepper to taste
very sweet and rich, but goes well with pumpkin or squash ravioli
Nice flavor, just not intended for pasta.
I omitted the oil, used soy milk instead of cream, and omitted the brown sugar. This was great on beet raviolis! I can't wait to top other kinds of pasta with this sauce!
Very good. A little too thick, though. Would use more milk next time. Served it over Trader Joes honey roasted pumpkin ravioli. Yum! Perfect meal on a cool, fall night.
I must say...I did make a few changes, and wow! I did add 1/2 tsp. sage as others suggested (if you like it, which I do); I took others' suggestion and only added 1 tsp. brown sugar instead of 1 tbsp., and used 1 c. skim milk plus 1/2-2/3 c. half and half. For the finishing touch, I thought "wow, I have a bottle of whiskey just sitting there, I wonder how that would be??" So I added 1/4 c. whiskey....Let me tell you, that was the best way to finish this sauce!! Terrific! We served it on Trader Joe's Butternut Squash ravioli with grilled chicken breasts and fresh butternut squash chunks. Amazing!!
This was great with our homemade acorn squash ravioli. It was quite thick and next time I would add more cream or milk. I also added walnuts to the dish as a final touch.
Followed the recipe and I loved it! Easy to make with ingredients I typically have in the kitchen. Went perfectly over some butternut squash ravioli.
This was good, it is pretty sweet but it pairs well with butternut squash. I followed the recipe except I did add some dried sage & I used skim milk and then thickened the sauce with cornstarch. Next time I think I will reduce the amount of brown sugar to make the sweetness a little more subtle & add a bit more pepper, but otherwise we liked it.
