I have some King Crab Ravioli from Legal Seafoods that I will be preparing for Ash Wednesday. Any suggestions for a tried and true, killer sauce for this? The recipe on the package doesn't really appeal to me.

If I can't find anything that sounds promising, we'll probably just do a light butter sauce. I'm hoping to find a light white sauce that goes great with seafood.

TIA!

I'd saute fresh garlic in butter, add some chopped green onion, salt and pepper and just pour that over your ravioli. Then top with fresh grated Parmesan.

I have a super easy garlic cream sauce:

4 T butter
3 cloves of garlic, minced
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese, cold, cut into small cubes
1/2 to 1 cup milk
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Melt butter in saucepan. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about one minute. Add cubes of cream cheese and whisk until cheese is softer in consistency. Add milk a little at a time and whisk until smooth. Start with 1/2 cup and keep adding until you get the desired consistency. Add salt and pepper and serve over ravioli.

(If you wanted to make this an alfredo sauce, just add 3/4 grated fresh parmesan or romano cheese and stir until smooth)

I'd do a light wine white sauce with some garlic, but not too much. I'd stay away from any cheese or any heavy cream sauce - I personally don't care for stronger cheeses like parm with delicate seafood flavors.

Or, maybe a lemon butter.

I'm thinking I don't want anything as "heavy" as alfredo.

I'm leaning towards a butter sauce at this point. Probably with lemon, since we will be all garliced up with the garlic bread LOL.

The only thing I don't like about a butter or oil sauce is what it does to the ravioli. I think it looks unappealing...
