Butternut Squash Ravioli with Basil Craisin Topping

Butternut Squash Ravioli
with Basil Craisin Topping
It had been a while since I had enjoyed Butternut Squash Ravioli!  Too long!  Last month in my local grocery store there were packages of these yummy easy to prepare pastas.  Yes, the Butternut Squash Ravioli drought ended! 

Directions for preparing are on the package, but drizzling on Butter/ Margarine was not the option for me.  Suddenly, I remembered the Plumped Craisins in the fridge.  Butternut Squash & Plumped Craisins sounded like a great duo.  The dried Basil is always in my Spice Rack & Olive Oil for baking & sauteing is also ready to use.  Very quickly I learned that was a great combination for a topping!  Double yum!  So good!
