Lobster Ravioli Sauce

At Takeout Food, we believe in making the most of every culinary opportunity, and lobster is no exception. We understand that lobster is often seen as a luxurious ingredient, which is why we encourage maximizing its potential. For instance, when making a Connecticut lobster roll, we always use the shells to create a homemade lobster stock, which can then be used to make a delectable lobster bisque.

While lobster ravioli may seem more accessible compared to other lobster dishes, the choice of sauce is crucial. While there’s no definitive answer since taste is subjective, we do have a preference at Takeout Food.

Sure, you could go for a simple brown butter sauce or even a sweet potato gnocchi-inspired sauce, but for lobster ravioli, our top choice is a creamy bisque-like sauce that truly enhances the succulent shellfish and tender pasta. It’s the perfect complement to the natural flavors of the lobster.

How to make creamy sauce for lobster ravioli

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil to cook the ravioli noodles (remember, you’ll need some pasta water for the sauce).

  3. Add tomato paste to the onions and stir, letting it caramelize for about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Incorporate crushed red pepper flakes and stir to combine.
  5. Deglaze the pan with vermouth, then add kosher salt and pepper.
  6. Ladle in some pasta water and stir, cooking for 1-2 minutes at a rapid simmer.
  7. Add heavy cream and heat through for another minute.
  8. Use a slotted spoon or kitchen spider to transfer the cooked lobster ravioli to the sauce in the pot, tossing to ensure the pasta is coated. Serve and enjoy.
