Patriotic Ravioli with Light Alfredo Sauce

For my 4th of July table, I used my basket of geraniums, with Cody, a Brass Button Bear.

I made this Big Star quilt table topper.

I used one of my favorite sets of dishes, Brentwood, by Adams, which are English Ironstone, insulated red tumblers from Wal Mart and ruby red King's Crown wine glasses, bought off ebay several years ago. The star tealight holders are from Wal Mart and the red flatware is by Cambridge, from Homegoods.

Pitcher is from a good friend and it is from  Marshall, TX.

I saw this fun ravioli at Costco recently and had to buy it.  It is so colorful and really delicious.  I wanted to make a light alfredo sauce to complement it.  Here's the recipe that I put together, after reading several on the internet. 

Ravioli of your choice, cooked according to package directions


1 can evaporated skim milk
1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2-3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/8 t. pepper
1/8 t. garlic powder


Gradually combine milk and flour; stir in broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until hot. Blend in cheese, pepper and garlic powder.

Serve over ravioli or other pasta.

Happy 4th everyone!!

  3. The table is festive, and I just love the table topper.
    Alfredo sauce is my number one favorite thing to eat. I'm always looking for a leaner version so this one is now on my list of things to try.

  12. Kitty~ How fun your patriotic ravioli is! I keep hoping they will open a Costco that is closer than an hour away from us. My sister's pattern is Brentwood by Adams~ I love your ruby glasses topping off your stack :)

  13. Get outta here! Red, white & blue ravioli??!?!?! How fun!!! I love it!!! I didn't see it here at the Costco I go to here in the Kansas City area, but if I do I will most certainly snap it up! There are 3 Costcos within easy driving distance (20 minutes each way), so I hope I can find it! It would be fun for a Labor Day meal. You did such a beautiful job with that quilted topper!!!!!!!! You must have incredible patience as well as skill!!! Very pretty table setting, Kitty! I hope you and your family enjoyed a wonderful holiday!
