Summer Corn Cream Sauce

Submitted by Alfresco Pasta

Great sauce to go with ravioli—featuring summer corn.  Even though it is a cream sauce, it comes out very light and everytime we make it people can’t seem to get enough!

Best with:  Lobster & sweet corn ravioli, spring pea and marscapone ravioli, and shrimp and langoustine ravioli
