Super simple ingredients!
All you’ll need for this ravioli recipe is a package of Chicken and Cheese Ravioli (I got mine from Costco) and Bacon. For the sauce, you’ll need Heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, Salt, Pepper, and a Garlic clove.
- Partially freeze the bacon- Having the bacon partially frozen will make it much easier to chop. This will make the pieces more uniform in size and also save you time.
- Don’t curdle the cheese- When it comes time to add the cheese, take the sauce off the burner because high heat will cause the cheese to curdle.
- Add spinach- For some added color and flavor, add spinach. This green goes well with the other ingredients in this ravioli dish.
How to make it
- Cook the bacon. Chop the partially frozen bacon and then place it in a skillet. Cook it over medium-high heat until crispy.
- Add garlic. Stir in the minced garlic for a few seconds, until it becomes fragrant.
- Add the heavy cream and cheese. Pour in the heavy cream and allow it to come to a simmer. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese.
- Cook the ravioli. Cook the chicken and cheese ravioli in a pot of salted boiling water according to the package directions. Drain it in a colander.
- Combine. Add the ravioli to the cream sauce and stir. Serve immediately.

How long will it last?
This Chicken and Cheese Ravioli can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 3-5 days. When you are ready to reheat it, place it back in the skillet with a little extra cream to help the sauce come together.
Can I freeze it?
Yes, you can freeze this ravioli. If you plan to freeze this Chicken and Cheese Ravioli, try cooking it a little less so it is slightly underdone. This way, the ravioli does not become mushy as it thaws. The ravioli and sauce can be left overnight to thaw in the refrigerator, then reheated on the skillet with a little extra cream.
