Heart Ravioli and Creamy Marinara


  • premade toasted ravioli
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onions chopped
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 jar marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Hiland Dairy heavy cream


  • Cook the ravioli according to the box instructions. While the ravioli are cooking, in a large skillet over medium/high heat, drizzle the olive oil. Once hot, add the onions and cook for about a minute until soft. Next add the garlic and stir together, heat for another minute.
  • Add the marinara sauce to the pan. Then add the basil, oregano, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir together and heat until the sauce just begins to bubble.
  • Turn the heat to low and then add the heavy cream. Stir together. Let simmer on the stove while you prepare the ravioli.
  • Once the ravioli are cooked but cooled enough to handle, use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to punch a heart shape into the middle of the ravioli. Use a toothpick, if needed, to press out the small middle heart. Continue for each ravioli until all are done.
  • On a plate or bowl, spoon some of the marinara onto the plate then top with both the large raviolis and the heart shaped middles. Top with parmesan cheese and enjoy!
