Ratings & Reviews





This recipe was very easy to make, and I would definitely recommend it to the pasta lovers out there. Instead of fresh dill (the grocery store was out) I used fresh chives, which complemented the herb and garlic cream cheese wonderfully! I added the spinach RIGHT before serving, and it was fantastic. I will definitely make this recipe again. It was very simple and easy, but very satisfying!



Loved this recipe --- and so did my kids!


Wasn't my favorite, I might have added the spinach too early because it got kind wilty & a bit slimy. Not sure if I'll make it again.


Excellent sauce! Replaced spinach leaves with sundried tomatoes, red peppers & red onions. Try layering, it eliminated wilted leaves: Fresh bed of spinach leaves, the ravioli, then the sauce on top. Will try again with a white fish, the dill & lemon were fantastic!


This recipe was quick and easy to make. My family loved it and I can see myself making it again on days I don't feel like cooking.


I thoughly enjoyed it was delicous.and definately would make it again


I was just blown away with how great this tasted! Big hit with hubby & daughter, so easy to make, terrific for summer! Will for sure make again...and again...and again! :)


I really liked this dish. The sauce was very tasty. I cut the sauce recipe in thirds as I was cooking just for myself, so I didn't have the problem of not enough sauce. I love fresh spinach in a salad, but the warmth of the sauce and pasta made it wilt a little which I didn't care for personally. Next time perhaps I'd add asparagus instead.


This was nice with the dill and the lemon. And so quick to make.


This meal is quick and easy to prepare. The entire family enjoyed it. However, it was a bit dry. There wasn't enough sauce compared to the amount of ravioli called for in this recipe.


I enjoyed this very much. I made it for a main dish and used the frozen ravioli with cheese. It was alot less expensive that way. After working all day it was quick and filling.


use less noodles next time
