Chicken and Ravioli Carbonara – refrigerated ravioli and chicken tossed in a quick cream sauce and topped with bacon. Ready in under 30 minutes! Great weeknight pasta dish!
This recipe is adapted from Betty Crocker. I receive their newsletters and it was waiting for me in my inbox last week. I always stock up on refrigerated ravioli when it is on sale at Publix, so I had everything at home to make this for dinner. I used some rotisserie chicken, and this only took about 20 minutes to have dinner on the table.
We both really enjoyed this dish. The recipe says it serves 4, but I would say this serves 3 if you have a salad with it. We just had the pasta and almost finished the whole pot ourselves. I absolutely loved how easy this was to make! You can’t beat a 20 minute hot meal during the week.
Chicken & Ravioli Carbonara
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup cooked, chopped chicken
½ tsp Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 package (9-oz) refrigerated cheese ravioli
¾ cup chicken broth
½ cup half-and-half
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add chicken and Italian seasoning to skillet. Heat 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds.
Add broth and ravioli to skillet. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered about 4 minutes or until ravioli are tender and almost all broth has evaporated.
Stir in half-and-half; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 5-8 minutes or until sauce is hot and thickens to coat ravioli. Sprinkle with bacon, cheese and parsley.
Um how many raviolis come in a 9oz bag? I can’t find a small bag like that anywhere!
This looks good, going to try it with gluten free pasta and shrimp instead of chicken.
this looks awesome gonna try it!! i'm going to add an egg in there with it to make the sauce. and extra bacon!!!
you can't go wrong with extra bacon!
Holy mother….this looks simply amazing! I am taken away by all of these great recipes! I will probably be trying this one out this next week!! Can't wait. 🙂
This is good..I sauteed some chicken breasts (about 1 lb) and seasoned them with salt, pepper, and a little Italian seasoning instead of using rotisserie chicken
Made this last night and it was delicious! It is definetley going into my regular rotation of meals. I used frozen raviolis instead of refrigerated ones, so I upped to simmering time a bit. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
This looks RIDICULOUSLY GOOD Steph! Carbonara is already my favorite but this is even better. Frick!
Oh my goodness this looks amazing! Best part is that it seems simple enough for me to make when I get home from a 10 hr work shift.
Oh gosh, this looks sooo good! Must try soon but at least I can pin immediately 😉
I love carbonara sauce. It's one of my favourites, but never thought of having it with ravioli.
I have been enjoying your recipes for quite sometime. Until recently I was able to read the recipe in my inbox. Now I can see the pictures and I have to “click here” for the recipe. I much preferred being able to access the recipe without clicking on the link. Just curious why this has changed.
oh golly, this sure looks wonderful
