  • 500g fresh ravioli (mushroom or cheese-filled)
  • 200g mixed mushrooms (button, shiitake, or cremini), sliced
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving



  1. Cook the Ravioli: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the ravioli and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. Sauté the Mushrooms: In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their moisture and begin to brown, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add Garlic and Herbs: Reduce the heat to medium, then add the minced garlic, fresh parsley, and thyme to the pan. Cook for another 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the garlic is fragrant.
  4. Deglaze with Balsamic Vinegar: Pour in the balsamic vinegar and stir to coat the mushrooms. Let it simmer for 1-2 minutes until the vinegar reduces slightly and coats the mushrooms.
  5. Prepare the Herby Butter: In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until it starts to bubble and turn golden brown. This should take about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and add a pinch of salt and pepper.
  6. Combine Ravioli and Sauce: Add the cooked ravioli to the pan with the mushrooms. Pour the browned butter over the ravioli and gently toss to combine, ensuring the ravioli is well coated with the sauce.
  7. Serve: Transfer the ravioli to serving plates. Sprinkle with additional fresh parsley and grated Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy the rich, herby, and tangy flavours of this exquisite dish.
