Butternut squash has a rich, sweet flavor that pairs unbelievably well with an herby pesto made with slightly bitter winter greens. This recipe uses the slow cooker to cook the ravioli in a simple tomato-based pasta sauce and then tops it with a flavorful pesto and a dusting of Parmesan cheese as the splendid finishing touch.
This recipe is simple to make, thanks to the hands-free nature of slow cooker cooking, and truly dinner-party worthy. It’s completely meat-free, so the dish is an ideal option to offer vegetarian guests at a dinner party or holiday meal. It’s also the perfect meal to dig into on a chilly winter evening after a long day at work.
