Cheese Ravioli with Garlic Clam Sauce


When I made this we had 2 weeks to eat as much food left over in this house as we could before we moved. Which is where this beautiful little concoction came from. I literally just threw stuff into a pot and prayed that it didn't taste disgusting. I was a little weary at first because it wasn't looking overly appetizing but once I dug in, I was hooked. Think shrimp scampi but with clams.


  • 2 lbs. cheese ravioli
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter
  • 1 can clams
  • 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  1. Cook ravioli according to package.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter into a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic, clams, clam juice, bay leaf and thyme and let simmer until the ravioli is cooked.
  3. Drain ravioli and pour the clam sauce over the ravioli. Serve hot.
