Rising Moon Organics Butternut Squash Ravioli

Rising Moon Organics Butternut Squash Ravioli

Since I still have a bit of lunchbox fondue left over from my last post, I thought it might go well with ravioli. Someday I would like to try to make ravioli from scratch.

But not today.

Today, I need something kinda quick so I’m pulling out of the freezer a package of Rising Moon Organics Butternut Squash Ravioli. It’s vegan, organic and tasty.

They also have quite a few other vegan ravioli options, so far I like the butternut squash the best. It tastes like a cross between pumpkin and sweet potato.

Cook according to the package directions. Toss the pillowy ravioli with a little vegan butter or olive oil, (basically so the raviolis don’t stick to themselves in a big clump), then serve on a bed of sautéed baby spinach, surrounded by the cheesy fondue sauce. Top with a few basil leaves, and voilà, dinner is served.

    Quick and easy – just how I like it! Thanks for this review. I’ve had other types of their ravioli, but I look forward to trying the butternut squash.

    i’ve seen this in the store but wasn’t sure if it would be good or not…thanks for the review

    i haven’t seen this variety yet at our co-op, but I will search it out. My hubs used to make pumpkin ravioli in alfredo, before we wised up, and this would be a walk down memory lane. Try them in some EB with fresh sage and toasted pinenuts- that’s my favorite way for regular squash, so i bet it would be good for these guys too. Ooh, and some shiitakes!

    great idea to add the fondue! This is the only vegan ravioli I’ve found in the area, so I really appreciate the convenient option.

    barbara – I’ve heard good things about them too.

    Jennifer – I tried the garlic veggies one several times but I still like the butternut squash the best. Although I would like to try some of the other flavors sometime.

    evestirs – Give it a try, I think you’ll like it.

    Claire – Pumpkin ravioli sounds great. Maybe Rising Moon should make pumpkin ones for the holiday, that would be awesome.

    Jessica – Thanks! It is delicious.

    lisa (show me vegan) – I think it’s also the only vegan ravioli around here too, good thing it’s tasty.

  9. Nikki on October 7th, 2008

    I love this ravioli – it looks so great too the way you presented it.

    Oh, I think I had this at a restaurant with a maple syrup cream sauce. Outrageously good. I want to make my own before butternut goes out of season!

  11. Olga on October 7th, 2008

    I actually tried making butternut squash ravioli one time, but they completely fell apart.

  12. chow on October 7th, 2008

    Brooke – Thanks! I haven’t tried their vegan pesto yet. I’ll have to look for it next time I’m at the store, I bet it would be good with the ravioli.

    Nikki – Thank you!

    aleta meadowlark – Maple syrup cream sauce sounds interesting. Someday I’ll try to make my own too.

    Olga – Bummer. I can see that happening to me. Maybe that’s why I put off trying to make it and just getting the raviolis at the store.

    I like them and get them when they’re on sale, but the butternut varieties are far too sweet for me.

  15. chow on October 16th, 2008

    tofufreak – Hope you enjoyed it!

    Judith – Me too, I like to stock up when they’re on sale. Maybe the store will have some of the other varieties I’ve been wanting to try.
