Lobster Ravioli with Bacon, Corn, Basil, and White Wine Butter

Ravioli and I have had several steamy affairs over the years. It’s such a wonderful flavor that can be paired with all kinds of sauces, veggies, or whatever you want. That’s my kind of affair. CALM DOWN. It’s wink-wink-tongue-in-cheek so get your mind out of the gutter.

This ravioli?! OMG. It’s everything I’m currently crushing on served on one plate. It’s perfect for a summer date night at home. I had a rough night last night full of my own ridiculous nonsense of second-guessing, omg-I-suck-at-errthang, and my overall anxious-hot-mess-of-a-probably-undiagnosed-ADHD-brain, and all I wanted to do was stay under the covers indefinitely watching trashy television… but then…

I remembered I had leftover lobster ravioli in my fridge and just like that, up and at ’em. I mean really at ’em. I did laundry and cleaned a little. Instant mood lifter, this ravioli is.

So if you want to eat your emotions, this is the proper way to do it. Perhaps I should start a Master Class on that very subject. I think I will call it: ‘Don’t waste your emotional eating on some drive-thru nonsense: do it up right!’

  • Do it with pasta.
  • Do it with bacon.
  • Do it with seafood.
  • Do it with corn.
  • Do it with fresh basil.
  • And for heaven’s sakes do it with butter.

For the ravioli:

  • 13 oz lobster ravioli (I found mine at Costco)

For the sauce:

  • 2 slices thick sliced bacon (diced)
  • 1 shallot (very finely diced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • ½ tsp lemon oil
  • ¾ cup corn (from about 1 cob)
  • ½ cup dry white wine (tested with Pinot Grigio)
  • 4 Tbsp salted butter (cubed)
  • ¾ tsp black pepper

To finish:

  • 3 Tbsp fresh basil (chiffonaded)


For the ravioli:

  • Cook ravioli according to package instructions. Drain and toss with sauce.

For the sauce:

  • While waiting for water to come to a boil to cook ravioli, make sauce.
  • In a very large sauté pan, cook bacon over medium heat until crispy, remove bacon and set aside. Add shallot and cook for 1 minute. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add lemon oil and corn. Cook until heated through. Add wine, scraping up browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook until most of the wine has evaporated, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, add in butter and pepper, stirring until melted.

To finish:

  • Toss ravioli with bacon and sauce until well mixed. Top with basil. Serve warm.

I do prefer fresh corn over frozen for this recipe. Corn from the freezer just will never compare to in-season corn from the cob. Click here for a corn zipper that makes removing fresh corn from the cob a piece of cake!
If you don’t want to purchase one of those corn zippers, a great hack for getting corn off the cob is to do it in a bundt pan. Place the pointy end of the corn in the hole of the bundt pan and stand it up vertically. Carefully stabilize the other end with your not-dominant hand. Use a knife in your dominant hand to cut corn from top to bottom to remove kernels. The kernels should fall right in the pan.

    I thought this was very good! I made it for a girls night in. I added fresh grape tomatoes (halved) when I added the corn and also added some lemon zest and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice when I added the lemon oil. I would perhaps pull the bacon out next time to keep it’s crispyness otherwise 5 star yummyness.
