What makes this an easy quick cheat recipe

I call this my Super Easy Wuick Cheat Garlic Butter Pasta, because I usually like to cheat and serve it with storebought ravioli. Although I sometimes make my own ravioli (and it’s absolutely amazing) I don’t always want to spend the 2 hours it takes to make my own. But luckily there’s always a quick and easy cheat for those days – and that’s called “a trip to the grocery store”.
This garlic butter sauce can be served with any type of pasta, and I also make it with spaghetti…but my very favorite way is eating this sauce with ravioli. There’s just something about those stuffed pasta pockets filled with mushrooms or creamy spinach and ricotta that’s when it’s accompanied by my garlic sauce takes me straight to foodie heaven. It’s that buttery, cheesy, garlicy and absolutely mouthwatering sauce combined with al dente pasta that’s irresistibly good.

What type of pasta should you use

You can use any type of pasta for this recipe. I like to use the traditional spinach and ricotta stuffed ravioli pasta, but you can just as easily serve this sauce with spaghetti or your preferred pasta type. There’s no rules or limits. The creamy garlic butter sauce brings out the best in any pasta, enhancing the flavors of the butter and parmesan.

Types of pasta that goes amazing with this sauce:

  • Spinach and ricotta ravioli
