In grocery stores across the country, frozen and fresh pumpkin raviolis are popping up and selling like hot cakes. The only question is: What kind of sauce do you put on them? I've got a creamy and light crab sauce with a touch of Parmesan and thyme that will blow your mind! Sprinkle with extra cheese, garnish with a sprig of fresh thyme, and enjoy!

  • 1 pound frozen pumpkin-filled ravioli

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 (6 ounce) can crabmeat

  • 2 teaspoons crushed dried thyme

  • 1 pint light cream

  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

  • salt and ground white pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir in ravioli and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until ravioli float to the top and filling is hot, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain.

  2. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add crabmeat and thyme; cook and stir until thyme is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Pour in cream. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, until cream begins to steam, 4 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat and add Parmesan cheese; stir until melted, about 2 minutes.

  3. Ladle cream sauce into the bottom of a serving dish; top with ravioli.

Cook's Notes:

If using fresh ravioli, cook according to package instructions.

Depending on your taste, you may want to double the amount of crab or cheese for a thicker sauce.
