“Shrimp Ravioli is the perfect date night dinner. Quick and super easy to prepare but it will look like you slaved in the kitchen for hours!”Do you know why I love this Shrimp Ravioli sooooo much?
- Well … it’s super economical.
- It’s REALLY easy to put together. (I really mean that)

- It tastes like you are dining at a fine restaurant.
I literally think that hits all of the … I HAVE TO MAKE THIS … check points!
This is a three ingredient recipe folks!
- Frozen cheese ravioli,
- Alfredo sauce and
- Shrimp …plus seasonings
Get started by putting a pot of water on the stove to boil the ravioli.
Once you get the ravioli going … pan fry the shrimp with seasonings and a little oil.
After the shrimp are done, remove them from the pan and add the Alfredo sauce to “deglaze” the pan and create a spicy cream sauce to coat the ravioli with.
Frozen ravioli is one of the most versatile frozen foods that I’ve found. They take about 5 minutes to boil and can be used in a million different dishes!
Once they have finished boiling … throw them in the pan with the Alfredo sauce and toss to coat.
Top with the blackened shrimp, chopped green onion and some fresh thyme. Serve with crusty french bread on the side to sop up all that delicious sauce.
And Voila … Date night is on!
