It is Valentine’s Day weekend so I want to make something sweet for my sweetie. Chocolate desserts are so expected for this holiday I decided to try something savory sweet – Roasted Sweet Potato Ravioli with Brown Butter and Walnut Sauce.
This recipe isn’t hard but assembling all the ravioli takes some time. So you might want to save this dish for a leisurely weekend when you have some time.
The first time I had Sweet Potato Ravioli it was served as a main course. I like to serve it as unique side dish. You, of course, can serve it up in any manner you like.
Happy Valentine’s Day weekend everyone!
