Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Tomato and Artichoke Sauce
This sauce is quick and easy. It goes well with other pasta types such as tortellini or penne. I serve this with a good quality, crusty bread.

This was a really good dinner. My husband and Father-in-Law loved the sauce! I used two cans Italian style, diced and peeled tomatoes (undrained) in place of the Romas, and two jars of artichoke hearts because we love them. I also added the liquid from both jars, but next time I will drain the second jar into the sink -- the sauce was just a little too "marinade-y". I used slightly more garlic than called for, but other than that exactly as written. Served over fresh cheese ravioli with sourdough bread on the side --- WONDERFUL!!! And oh so simple!!Read More

One of my favorite quick lunches with friends. I use canned Italian tomatoes with basil and four cheese ravioli. And the oil at the end is essential for keeping the pasta from sticking together. I also saute the garlic in the oil for about a minute before I add the other ingredients. I don't add the marinade from the artichokes.
Great recipe for weekday dinners. Quick and easy to make, yet elegant to serve.
This was a nice change for ravioli and it was quick and easy, but I would not make it again.
I found this recipe a few years ago and everyone in my family still loves it! In the winter we use canned diced tomatoes (and sometimes in the summer when we don't have the time to peel fresh ones). Sometimes the jars of artichoke hearts have really large pieces, so I always chop them up before adding them. Quick and easy, and SO delicious!
We enjoyed this very much but I altered it just slightly. I used one 25 oz. bag of ravioli. I used 4 Roma tomatoes, but didn't bother to seed them, and one can of Italian-style diced tomatoes. I also used 1 whole can of artichoke hearts, sliced up, and used all the juice. I used 4 cloves of fresh garlic, instead of 3. I also added some Italian seasoning and let it all cook down for about 10 - 12 mins., then mixed it with the ravioli. My husband also used some of the sauce on top of some cheesy garlic bread.
This is my husband's second favorite meal - we make it quite often! The first time I made it, it did seem bland so I added premade pesto (Safeway Verdi brand works best) to the tomato sauce for an extra zing ~ absolutely delicious!
MMM so good! I used only one package of ravioli (Light cheese) but the full amount of sauce. I also cut back on the salt, and added sliced black olives, as well as fresh basil (about 2 Tbsps). This was delicious! Perfect amount of sauce for 9 ounces of ravioli. I know that a bunch of other reviewers said that something was missing... try the fresh basil! And if you are using parmesan cheese from a can, dump it out. There is no replacement for fresh parmesan (I spend the extra money for Reggiano Parmesan... it's the BEST and makes such a difference in recipes). Also, the recipe calls for FRESH tomatoes. There is a time and place for canned tomatoes, and this recipe is not the time, nor the place. Quality ingredients are needed to make this dish. Took me a half an hour from start to finish. Thank you for this one, Cathy!
I really liked how easy this recipe was, and that it only took me about 15 min to whip up. I did feel like it was missing something though. I might add some white wine to the tomatoes, artichokes, onions and garlic next time.
Three stars for being quick, easy, and filling! I needed to get dinner ready fast and this worked well. It wasn't knock your socks off wonderful though. It also made a lot, even though I only used one package of pasta (I used fresh cheese tortelini).
I served this sauce over cheese and proscuitto filled ravioli along with fresh asparagus and a salad. I appreciate the fact that it was not time consuming (considereing I started dinner a little later that usual) and it had a pretty good flavor. I didn't have any green onions so I subbed some parsley and Italian seasonings. I did add a bit of sugar because it was really tangy. I didn't peel or seed my tomatoes....(didn't realize I was supposed to until I read the recipe again and had already chopped most of them up). Don't know if I'll make this again or not, but I am glad I gave it a try.
Really excellent in its simplicity.
This was a good basic recipe. I chopped everything very fine in a blender and used a tablespoon of the marinade instead of plain olive oil. It was a bit salty for my tastes and I had cut out the salt. I'll make it again, but will add different seasonings to give it some more flavor.
Delicious! My father, who is the pickiest eater you will ever meet, even went back for seconds. Best of all, it is incredibly simple to make. and you CAN use canned tomatoes if they're the organic steamed kind. Much better than the artificially ripened ones you find in the winter (& you can use the juice to make a delicious tomato soup!).
I love the fresh tomatos and green onions! Yum. Added a couple of ingredients to make it more of a cream sauce but this would be delicious either way! Thanks for the recipe.
Very good and easy as well. I added a bit of tomato sauce and a few extra artichoke hearts as well. The tomato sauce gave the sauce a little body, which I thought improved it a bit. Great recipe!
I enjoyed trying a dish with no meat. It was fresh tasting and the family all liked it. I used to jars of artichokes which was perfect! It was still missing something though. I am going to try fresh mozz next time.
I used the advice of a lot of reviewers on here. Substitute the green onion for a chopped half of large yellow onion. Use two cans of Italian diced tomatoes and something I came up with myself...last 4 minutes of cooking, toss fresh peeled and deveined shrimp in the tomato sauce. I believe that is what was missing from the recipe. Outstanding!!! Thanks for the great recipe.
My husband loved it, I thought it was good but not outstanding. I think I'll add some tomato paste next time to add a thickness to the sauce, but the fresh tomatoes were a hit. My toddler loved it as well. We'll be making it again for sure. Thanks! Danielle
SO GOOD! I made this for myself for lunch. Now I want to make it for my family, it was delicious!
Super delicious and easy to make! I used 2 cans of Italian seasoned diced tomatoes, added 1 small can of sliced mushrooms and used 1 can of artichokes, not marinated. I'm making it again tomorrow!
Made this dish last night and really liked it!! I used tortellini since I didnt have ravioli on hand. I followed the recipe but did a few things different. For the tomatoes I used half of a large can of crushed tomatoes. Also added a can of mushrooms to the mixture since hubby likes them so well. Once the tomato mixture was cooked throughly it still didnt taste quite like I liked so I added just under a 1/4 C of cream cheese (in small chunks) and extra parmesan cheese. Let that all melt and come together. It turned out fantastic!! I will definatley keep this recipe and make the same way. Also love the artichokes in it. Yum!
Easy and delicious! The sauce has such a rich yet clean flavor! Definitely a keeper!
I've made this recipe twice and both times it came out great. I followed the recipe to a T the first time and it was wonderful. The Second time around I added a little hot pepper to spice things up, I didn't bother skinning my tomatoes, added an extra can of diced tomatoes, and it came out just as good. This is the kind of recipe that you always keep on hand for those nights when you don't feel like cooking too much. I paired it with a strawberry and spinach salad and my family loved it.
Flavor was wonderful but I think much of that was due to the marinated artichokes. The brand I bought had a lot of flavor vs many others I've tried that were much less spicy. I used the marinade since there was very little. Only change was the size of hearts-it was a 12 oz bottle. Everyone enjoyed the change and loved it with the broccoli asparagus salad with avocado dressing
I LOVED IT! So fresh tasting! I used halved grape tomatoes in place of the romas because I had them on hand and I only used 1 pkg of raviolis (dinner was just for me). I recommend chopping (I used kitchen sissors) the artichokes up so they go a little further and cooking the "sauce" (it's more of a topping) a little longer than called for to cook the garlic up a little so it isn't so over-powering. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Thanks for the recipe!
this was amazing...! i mixed meat filled with cheese ravies. next time i will deff use more articokes though...
This was good and easy to make. I used tortelloni, instead of ravioli.I also had some tomatoes from my grandmothers garden, which made the flavor amazing!
I thought this was a great dish. I used cheese filled tortillini instead and it was delicious. Very light and healthy!
I didn't have enough fresh tomatoes, so I used a 14 oz can of petit diced tomatoes, strained. It's a great meal for a weekday night when short on time.
This recipe really showcases tomatos fresh from the garden. I make this over and over again in the summer. Very quick and easy to throw together and very healthy and tasty. Best of everything!
A great recipe! It was so easy and inexpensive to make too. I substituted frozen ravioli, 2 cans of diced tomatoes, and some Italian seasoning to make the prep a little easier. I forgot to add the green onions but it turned out just fine. Next time I will drain the tomatoes a little more (the sauce was rather watery), or boil off more of the water. My husband suggested that we try the sauce on chicken breasts sometime. A quick, attractive meal that will definitely be a regular in our home.
Overall, this was good! I did make a few changes... For example, I didn't use as many roma tomatoes. But I don't think it would've mattered. The recipe was easy, and the result was delicious.
This was OK. The recipe didn't say whether or not to drain the marinated artichoke hearts. After reading the ingredients in the jar, I decided to drain them (but didn't rinse them). As I'd drained the artichokes, I added a little more olive oil. I used parmesan-romano cheese to give it a little more of a kick.
Yummmm! This is the tastiest dinner entree I have prepared in a long time! I personalized it just a bit. After tossing the ravioli in a little oil, I also gave it a few shakes of italian seasoning. I also added fresh chopped spinach to the sauce to increase the vegetable content. I omitted the green onions because, for me, it just didn't seem to work with this dish. It tasted divine and was pretty healthy too!
This was really easy and simple, but it had a lot of flavor. I used romano cheese instead of parmesan. It's sharper with a little more flavor.
I love this gravy (as it is called here in South Philly!) I did tweek it a little. Instead of green onion, I used shallots. I also added a few anchovies in with the oil, garlic and onion that way there they literally melt. I also added a few chopped black olives, 2 bay leaves and fresh oregano and basil. YUMMY!!! No cheese was added to mine. It tasted liked an authentic Italian gravy!
Yummy combo of flavors! I love artichokes and don't really have many ways to serve them. Only changes I made were: I used frozen raviolis, a 14oz can artichoke hearts; and because I didn't have any fresh tomatoes, 14 oz can diced italian tomatoes with ~ 1/2 c spaghetti sauce. Next time will also make sure to chop up artichoke hearts. Overall quick, simple and tasty!
Tasty, simple dish to change up dinner. fast too in a pinch. If I don't have green onions, I use the same amount of regular onions. Recipe as-is is well received by family.
Great flavor. I substituted canned Italian style tomatoes as others suggested, which made this a quick and easy meal to prepare.
This was my first attempt at cooking in nearly 10 years. Easy and yummy! This is also very good with summer squash instead of the marrinated artichoke hearts.
This was INCREDIBLE! I used canned tomatoes and 4 cloves of garlic instead of three, and it was simply the easiest and most delicious meal I've prepared in weeks. Thank you so much, Cathy! Definitely worth the five star rating!
Mmmmm.... really yummy for a quick meal. I didn't have Roma Tomatoes so I used Italian Diced Tomatoes (included liquid) and didn't have green onion so I used a sweet onion. Turned out great. Will do this one again.
Very good. A quick throw-together meal that's fit for company, too. Although fresh tomatoes taste better, canned diced tomatoes work well, too. I've also added a small can of sliced black olives--very good.
This was really fresh and not too heavy. My husband really enjoyed. We will be making this again.
EXCELLENT! I loved this dish and so did everyone else in my house. I used two cans of diced tomatoes peeled and seeded, and added the garlic/basil juice from each can also. I used the marinated Artichoke hearts from Costco chopped in half lengthwise. I added a tiny bit of chopped onion and some mushrooms since it seemed they would go well with this. I sauteed the garlic and Olive oil for a minute to let the flavors mix, then sauteed the onion and mushrooms for a minute before adding the tomato and artichoke. I let it all cook down while I cooked the raviolis. I served with warm green beans and homemade garlic and herb bread. FANTASTIC!
This recipe was wonderful!!! I was worried that it wouldn't have much flavor but it tasted great! And it was super easy! To save dishes I heated the tomatoes and artichoke while the pasta drained. We will make this again!
I didn't really like this dish. It was okay as a one-off random dinner, but definitely not going to be a regular. Thanks for the recipe!
A Nice light dinner. bumped up the garlic and added fresh basil and a little white wine. Sourdough makes a nice side
This ravioli was a hit at my house. :) Very fast and easy to make and a nice, light tasting flavor. One thing that's not clear in the recipe is whether to drain the artichoke hearts. I didn't and it created a wonderful sauce for the vegetables. :) Excellent, I'll definitely make this again!
This is so good! I followed the recipe exactly except that I added a can of tomato puree to make it a little more "saucy". I chopped up the artichoke hearts and added all of the oil from the jar. Delicious!
THis recipe was great!! It was so easy to make and it tasted great!!!
This was a great dish because it was so easy. I did add some spagetti sauce (about 1 cup) to bring out the tomato sauce. I can't imagine it without the tomato sauce, it was very good.
I used canned tomatoes with some roma tomatoes from the garden. Next time I'll use the canned ITALIAN tomatoes to give it more flavor. I'll make it again.
A nice, light and very tasty sauce for ravioli! The whole family was more than happy.
Yummy Yummy! I used tortillini and added the basil. I also used just over a pound of tomatoes. My husband loves basil and so loved the addition. Other than that I followed the recipie. I usually like more sausy pasta, but the flavor made up for it. Yummy. I think I might try it next time with caned diced tomatoes, just for conviniance. I like meals the faster the better
This was very good! The only alteration I made was using an Italian Seasoning mix. Just using salt and pepper didn't seem to make sense for something like this. It turned out very good and we also used cheese-stuffed tortellini instead of ravioli. When we first started eating it, we felt something was missing... then I realized I forgot to put a little parmesan on top. Boy did that make a huge difference! Once we added it, it was perfect. :) Both my hubby and I have left overs for lunch today! We will definitely make again. Thanks!
This recipe is a keeper. I made this for a non-vegetaian crowd and it was a huge hit. Very light and filling. I garnished with feta and followed other reviewers advice and simmered the sauce longer. This recipe is all about fresh tomatoes. Don't even think about using canned!
This recipe turned out better than I had imagined! Instead of fresh ravioli, I used dried spinach/cheese tortellini. Also added about 8 large quartered fresh mushrooms, a handful of fresh basil, capers and substituted regular minced onion for the green onion. Oh and I didn't bother with seeding or peeling the tomatoes - I just chopped them and threw them in the saucepan. Superb and so easy to make -- will definitely be making this again.
The sauce is fresh and light. My entire family loved it! The recipe didn't specify but we poured all the artichoke marinade in the pan also and it was perfect!
Really liked this recipe. My husband doesn't even like artichokes but he liked this. I added a whole can of artichokes and it was a bit too much, half would be better. Very tasty!
This recipe made a very quick and delicious meal. I used canned, diced tomatoes instead of fresh to make it even quicker and also added fresh basil for more flavor. This one I will definitely make again!
No cheese ravioli at the supermarket so I used gnocchi instead, and substituted canned diced tomato for fresh ones. Very delicious!
How easy was that?? (And tasty, too!) Great for lunch or a quick dinner. I used a can of whole, peeled tomatoes and a can of artichoke hearts. This way I didn't have to worry about the veggies spoiling before I used them. Everything else, except for the pasta, you should have on hand. Thanks, Cathy!
We enjoyed this quite a bit. I used a 24 oz package of ravioli, which I boiled and drained, then cooked over an olive-oiled skillet with 1 T of onion powder until the ravioli browned up a bit. Seperately, I cooked the tomatoes, artichokes, onions and salt/pepper. Then I mixed the pasta into the vegetable mixture, minus the extra 1 t of olive oil. We usually eat the ravioli by itself and it's great, but this was a very nice change of pace.
I followed many of the suggestions in the reviews. I used fresh roma tomatoes, but I think it was a little bland. Hubby liked it more than I did. I'm not a huge fan of jarred artichokes, which probably affected my enjoyment of this recipe. If I made it again, I would use freshly grated parmesan instead of the pre-grated stuff in the container.
Oh yum! This was excellent!!! Even my artichoke-hating hubby ate this right up! Other than opting to not peel my tomatoes (no need to, IMHO), I made no real changes. I usually tinker with every new recipe I try, but this is the one rare time I didn't. This is simply perfect as is! A touch of fresh chopped basil MADE this dish (try it!). Thanks SO much for sharing your recipe, Cathy. I'll be turning to this often for sure! :-)
This was a good refreshing summer dish, however I didn't use the fresh tomatoes, but one can of diced tomatoes and next time I would use one more can of tomatoes because it needed more. Other than that it was a great falvor, love the artichokes!
This was very good. I used two cans of zesty tomatoes and I added a dash of red pepper flakes to liven the dish up.
Very good---but I agree it was missing something. Not quite sure what it was. But it was an excellent meal--very easy to make, and quick!
This was an awesome recipe. I added chicken and instead of Roma tomatoes, I used a can of Rotell (Italian style) to add a bit more flavor. My family LOVED it and we will make this again for sure. Thanks so much!
this is a pretty standard summer italian dish. no wow factor until added a good handful of freshly torn basil from the garden.. curious why the picture is of tortellini instead of ravioli..did anyone else notice that? Tortellini will hold the sauce better then ravioli especially after coating it with olive oil as suggested in the receipe --can anyone give me a reason to make the ravioli non-stick by adding the oil??
It was pretty good...nothing special that I will be keeping the recipe. I did add mushrooms to mine and that was a nice addition.
I used 2 cans of diced and seasoned tomatoes instead of roma, and I used a white onion instead of scallions. These were the most delicious raviolis I have ever had in my entire life - and Boston's North End serves some really good ones! I just made it last night and I'm already craving it again.
Exceptional - add white wine
This was soooo GOOD. My husand compared it to the kind of pasta that the expensive italian restaurants have, so it must have been good because he's not a pasta lover.
I've made this sauce twice and loved it both times. It is very simple and quick to make. Both times I've served it with pasta rather than the ravioli. A nice change of pace.
Great recipe and very fast and easy to make. I feel the sauce should be used for only 1 package of the ravioli though. I made the full sauce recipe for one 9 oz. package and it was perfect. I also add 3/4 cup chopped basil and 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes to give it a little extra flavor.
It is good but not over the top... What was nice is that its light and refreshing. Not a heavy meal at all!
This is good but next time i will try red bell peppers instead of tomatoes.
Absolutely delicious. Only change was that I used Chicken & mozerella chesse raviolis. Served to company and everyone loved them. Super easy!
A perfect blend of flavors, and a really nice presentation, especially with 3-coloured tortellini. Use fresh tomatoes straight from the garden for an even more divine flavour.
Good! I added dried basil and red pepper flakes. Very easy, will make this again. Thanks!
I added an extra clove of garlic, and some liquid that was left over from the artichoke hearts. I also added a couple of octoberfest sausages barbecued and cut up. It added to the flavour. Delicous meal.
This sauce was unremarkable.
I make my own ravioli from scratch which also makes this better. 3 cheese, spinach, mushroom, onion ravioli. I use thyme and oregano in them so it gives it more flavour. I use lots of garlic in the sauce. With just a few minor adjustments, this is amazing.
I thought this was super yummy! My husband didn't care for the artichoke, but that just meant more for me.
This was simple, quick and delicious and will be a permanent part of my recipe collection.
this is a wonderful, easy dish that comes together quickly. The only change i made was to use tortellini instead of ravioli. Make this when you have beautiful, flavorful tomatoes and I'd recommend adding just a pinch of crushed red pepper if you like your food spicy; it gives the sauce a nice kick at the end without taking away from the other flavors. Thanks for sharing!
This was delicious. Sauce would go great over boneless skinless chicken breasts also!
This recipe was awesome! Being into convenience I also used canned tomatoes, but changed it a bit. I used 1 can of Italian recipe peeled tomatoes (I poured out some of the liquid) and 1 can of the peeled and diced tomatoes, drained and I also used bottled garlic instead of fresh. It still came out excellent and was gobbled up quickly. My 1 year old even loved it! Thanks to Cathy for sharing this one with us, we'll defintely be using it again.
This recipe has become a family favorite. My five year old daughter loves it! I found that the sauce is kind of dry, so I used a can of Italian diced tomatoes. I poured out some of the juice, but next time I think I might try it with more. I loved the artichokes!
Very good recipe. The sauce is not too heavy and the dish is very easy to prepare.
As is I give this 4 stars only because I think it's slightly bland on it's own. However I think this recipe is a great "base" and is very versatile, in addition to being very quick & easy. I used canned diced tomatoes with green chilies for some kick. I also used fresh garlic, onion powder since I had no scallions and added a few squeezes of lemon juice. My whole family really enjoyed this meal and I will definitely make it again!
used can of diced tomatos instead of fresh and added a box of thawed spinach. Will definitly make it again.
We have added this simple but delicious recipe to our regular line up
Yum! My entire family loved this. I love that the sauce was light and the house smelled amazing while it was cooking. We used diced tomatoes but other than that, kept the recipe the same. Thank you!
I really enjoyed this recipe. It was fresh,easy, and not to heavy. I will definetly make this again.
I love this and make it often. Usually have all the ingredients on hand if I sub canned tomatoes and it's so quick and easy to make.
