When I bought the Costco Rana Giovanni Butternut Squash Ravioli, I had no idea what kind of sauce to serve with it. After a quick google search I determined that brown butter sage sauce is recommended. I wanted to post the recipe in case you’re also unsure what sauce to make! This would make a super awesome fall or winter appetizer if you’re the dinner hosting type. I’ve never hosted an “official dinner party” but I watch enough Real Housewives of Orange County/Beverly Hills to know what they’re about.

1 package of Costco Giovanni Rana Butternut Squash Ravioli

3 tbsp salted butter

8 sage leaves chopped

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


  1. In a saucepan melt the butter over medium high heat, when the butter starts to turn a light amber or slightly darker yellow, add your sage. When the butter starts to turn dark amber and you see small brown flecks and it starts to smell a little nutty, remove the saucepan from heat. Try not to let it burn.
  2. Meanwhile cook Costco Giovanni Rana Butternut Squash Ravioli according to package directions.
  3. When your ravioli is finished cooking, spoon a small amount of brown butter sage sauce on top and sprinkle with Parmesan. I prefer to spoon it on top. Some people prefer to toss all of their pasta in the sauce before serving.
