lobster ravioli in butter, garlic and olive oil

Very quick, very easy, very yummy dinner.
  • 27-ounce package of lobster ricotta ravioli (I use the Pasta Prima Gourmet from Sam's Club)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6-8 basil leaves, chiffonade
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • Parmigiano Reggiano, to garnish

Gently boil ravioli (about 4 minutes).

In a medium pan, sauté onion and garlic in butter and olive oil until both begin to soften and turn translucent; add salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.

Place cooked ravioli in large pasta bowl and spoon onion and garlic sauce over it; sprinkle with fresh basil and curls of Parmigiano Reggiano.
