How to Make Lobster Ravioli Sauce

Follow these simple step-by-step instructions to whip up this incredible lobster ravioli sauce:

  1. Cook the lobster ravioli according to the package directions in a large pot of salted water. Drain and keep the ravioli hot, ready to be added to the sauce later.
  2. In a pot, sauté the shallots and garlic in olive oil over medium heat for 5-10 minutes until the shallots turn translucent without browning.
  3. Add the flour, dried basil, Old Bay seasoning, dried parsley, and dried thyme to the pot. Stir well, then gradually pour in the broth and milk while whisking to prevent lumps. The sauce should thicken quickly in around 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until melted. Add black pepper and remove the pot from the heat. The Old Bay seasoning provides enough salt, so no additional salt is necessary.
  5. Lastly, mix in the lemon zest, cooked lobster ravioli, and cooked chopped lobster. Serve the saucy lobster ravioli garnished with fresh basil and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Expert Tips from a Dietitian

As a level 3 recipe suitable for weight maintenance and active lifestyles, this creamy lobster ravioli sauce offers a luscious lemony flavor with a hint of Old Bay. Compared to butter or cream-based sauces, it contains lower saturated fat and overall calories. However, it may not be the best choice for weight loss due to its relatively high fat and carb content with minimal fiber.

For those trying to watch their weight, consider pairing the lobster ravioli with non-starchy veggies like a garden salad with a low-oil dressing. This will enhance the meal’s volume and satiety, offering additional fiber and essential nutrients absent in the ravioli.
