Chef Des Jardins pairs this flavorful and elegant sauce with squash ravioli during the fall, but it also goes well with handkerchief pasta, tagliatelle, or even tortellini.

What to buy: Chicken broth is used in this recipe, but it easily can be replaced with vegetable broth to make the sauce vegetarian.
