We recently took an amazing cruise from Vancouver through the Inside Passage of Alaska. The views were spectacular, the air was cool and crisp, and the food was to die for. Despite there being world class meals available each night, the meal I remember most as my favorite of the cruise, was a Lemon Artichoke Ravioli. Tender ravioli stuffed with artichokes and cheese smothered in a creamy lemon sauce. It was just amazing.

I knew immediately that it was something I wanted to recreate at home but the artichoke ravioli had me stumped. It wasn’t something I could just pick up at the local grocery store and I certainly wasn’t going to be (gasp) making my own from scratch. So I put my thinking cap on and on the flight home I jotted down my ideas for this recipe.

As simple as basic cheese tortellini might seem, the cream and the lemon and the artichokes and Parmesan all work together in beautiful harmony to create this dish that might just become my signature. The cream is nicely offset by the acid from the lemon and the Parmesan cheese is the perfect finishing touch. It’s such a versatile dish too – you can add some protein like chicken or sausage, or some spinach would be great as well.

  1. This recipe has way too much lemon juice in it. The other flavors in the sauce were very good but the lemon flavor was very tart and overpowering.

    1. I’m glad you tried the recipe. I personally like a ton of lemon flavor but everyone is different. I hope you’ll try it again with an adjustment, it really is one of my favorite dishes.
