It’s that magical kitchen technique known as the one-pan dinner. If there’s any time of year to take advantage of skillet dinners it’s summer. With this mushroom ravioli we still get a wholesome home-cooked meal without destroying our kitchens and spending a perfect summer night inside scrubbing dirty dishes.
This time of year, when the days are longer, warmer, and, well, just better than they were a month ago, I feel my “must make dinner” resolve drip away like the condensation on a bottle of ice cold beer. Can’t we just have hot dogs and potato chips for the next three months? Must we slave away in the kitchen making and cleaning up dinner? Not at all! Enter the skillet dinner.

One-Pan Creamy Mushroom Ravioli
Let’s not abandon our kitchens this summer, let’s just cook smarter and make this one-pan creamy mushroom ravioli.
It all starts with some simple ingredients like ravioli, mushrooms, and cheese. In one single pan the mushrooms are cooked until meaty and browned and then the sauce is made with milk, a little cream, fresh herbs, and parmesan cheese. A little flour and butter help thicken the sauce before the ravioli and browned mushrooms are stirred in. The whole thing finishes cooking in the oven. All of those ravioli emerge from the oven coated in a creamy cheesy mushroom sauce and dinner is served.
Things You Will Need:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 16 ounces sliced baby portobello mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 2 cups 2% milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- Leaves from 5-6 sprigs of fresh thyme
Tools you may find helpful:
- 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese
- 1 (20 ounce) package fresh four cheese ravioli
- Rotary cheese grater
- 3.5 quart saute pan
- Ove’ Gloves
After you’ve made this, devoured it, and popped the one pan into the dishwasher you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy that warm summer evening. So save the hot dogs and hamburgers for the weekend cook-out and dish up a big o’ plate of this creamy mushroom ravioli during the week.
