Sounds too simple to be great, doesn't it? But it really is and comes together in a snap.
Cheese Ravioli with Toasted Walnuts

Wow! I wasn't expecting to like this because I'm not a huge fan of walnuts and it seemed so simple, but it was DELISH! And easy to throw together. My only complaint is that the serving was fairly small - I ate more than a serving and it was 668 cals! I'll have to make a more substantial side next time so that I don't eat as much ravioli. I served it with a spinach salad with raisins, slivered walnuts, and balsamic vinaigrette.

We thought this was really bland. I wanted something quick and easy but this was just too subtle.

Wow. A look at the ingredients and one thinks how simple tasting it must be but this had amazing flavors. One note: I almost doubled the recipe since I had double the ravioli, but I don't think it's necessary to double the amount of olive oil. This is WONDERFUL!

I make a version of this with apples, cut and toasted with the walnuts. Really yummy!

This was very good but i did make a change that was fairly significant... I added a chopped apple to the walnuts as they were toasting (along with some butter). Yummy

Wow! This was fantastic! It was rich and creamy with flavors that blended perfectly together. I never would have guessed such simple ingredients would have exploded with flavor this way. However, next time I'll reduce the amount of olive oil and walnuts to trim the fat content a bit.

Quite good and easy. I made just as written except I used refrigerated tortellini instead of ravioli as that is what I had in. Will make this again. Impressive presentation.

This was delicious. I thought it would be a little bland but the lemon juice made it wonderful and so fresh tasting. Good even cold!

When I was done making this, I swear I've ordered the same thing at Carraba's-- it looks impressive and it tastes great-- and comes together in a flash. I put a little more lemon juice in the sauce, but that was the only change. Watch out when you throw in the lemon juice, use a screen to prevent splash up. I served it with a butter lettuce salad with a lemon, white wine, EVOO, S&P, Dijon, and (a pinch) sugar dressing. A nice tang to the savory dish. Will definitely make this again!
