Lobster ravioli is a rich and decadent dish, so here are some tips to help create a well-balanced lobster ravioli meal. Feel free to adapt and modify them to suit your taste.

  • Portion control. Be mindful of portion sizes. While lobster ravioli can be delicious, it’s important not to overindulge. 
  • Lighter sauce. Consider opting for a lighter sauce option for your lobster ravioli. Instead of heavy cream-based sauces, choose a tomato-based sauce or a light herb and olive oil dressing.
  • Fresh vegetables. Include a generous serving of fresh vegetables alongside your lobster ravioli. 
  • Side salad. Start your meal with a side salad (like simple green salad with a light vinaigrette dressing) or serve it alongside the lobster ravioli. 
  • Citrus garnish. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon or a sprinkle of lime zest over the lobster ravioli.
  • Whole grains. Incorporate whole grains into your meal. Serve a small portion of whole grain bread or include a side of quinoa, wild rice, or couscous.
  • Hydration. Drink plenty of water or enjoy a glass of sparkling water with a slice of lemon or cucumber to stay hydrated and refresh your palate between bites.
  • Light dessert. Fresh fruit, a fruit sorbet, or a small piece of dark chocolate can provide a satisfying and balanced ending to your lobster ravioli meal.

What To Serve With Lobster Ravioli

What could be better than serving a type of Italian bread with an Italian entrée such as lobster ravioli? You can soak up that delicious ravioli sauce with a soft and spongy Italian bread such as a Ciabatta or a Focaccia. 

You can also prepare Italian bread at home with some flour, salt, sugar, and active dry yeast. 

Ingredients include: Bread flour, active dry yeast, sugar, olive oil, and kosher salt,

Cippolini onions are the tinier, flatter, and paler counterparts of regular onions. These tiny onions are full of flavor, which makes them the perfect lobster ravioli side. They have a sweet flavor, which makes them taste truly delicious when roasted. Roast them whole in balsamic vinegar or sauté them in some butter for a tender and caramelized side dish. 

The sweet flavor of these onions goes perfectly with the savory flavor of lobster ravioli.

Ingredients include: Cipollini onions, butter, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, thyme, and sugar.

Also known as caked rapini, this veggie is quite similar to broccoli, but the only difference is that its stems, leaves, and buds are all edible. Mix broccoli rabe with roasted tomatoes and peppers and coat them in romesco sauce for a bold and savory side dish for your lobster ravioli.

Ingredients include: Broccoli rabe (rapini), lemon, olive oil, garlic cloves, and salt.

Looking for the best and most delightful lobster ravioli sides? Look no further than creamy, rich polenta! After all, lobster goes well with corn, and the creamy and buttery polenta is essentially made with cornmeal, which makes it the perfect side dish for lobster ravioli.

Ingredients include: Cornmeal, milk, butter, parmesan cheese, and salt.

Char some snap peas to bring their natural sweetness to the forefront. The bright peas and creamy burrata will look so good with a large bowl of lobster ravioli and will taste even better!

Ingredients include: Sugar snap peas, burrata, mint, dijon mustard, lemon, and honey.

If you’re looking for a crispy and savory side for your rich lobster ravioli, then look no further than asparagus wrapped in prosciutto. Steam some asparagus and wrap it in smoky prosciutto for a delicious side dish.

Ingredients include: Prosciutto, asparagus, black pepper, and olive oil.

Even though oven-roasted veggies are pretty simple, they have an unmatched rustic and sweet flavor that goes so perfectly with lobster ravioli. Sweet potatoes, carrots, turnips, beets, and parsnips all taste delicious when they are roasted, as that brings out their natural sweetness.  Simply coat the veggies with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, and then roast them in your oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. 

Ingredients include: Cherry tomatoes, cremini mushrooms, garlic, red onion, and zucchini.

Zook chips are an absolute delight to have on their own. They are blocks of Parmesan cheese that have been toasted or fried perfectly. These chips taste even more delicious when you pair them with zucchini. They act as an absolutely scrumptious lobster ravioli side dish thanks to the combination of soft and crunchy textures.

Ingredients include: Zucchini, parmesan, olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, and salt.

My love for garlic bread knows no bounds! This side dish is just so delicious and versatile that it goes well with so many dishes. However, when paired with lobster ravioli, it’s truly a match made in heaven! After all, it’s pasta, lobster, garlic, butter, bread, and cheese! 

Perhaps the best bit about garlic bread is just how easy it is to prepare. This recipe has herby garlic butter layered on thick. THICC. Do you want your garlic bread healthy, or do you want it delicious?

That’s what I thought.

Ingredients include: Parmigiano Reggiano, butter, parsley, garlic, olive oil, and French bread.

One of the things I like about Caprese Salad is that it’s almost as much fun to make as it is to eat.

If you do end up making the salad, I suggest using fresh basil. The aroma that’s produced from prepping this dish will permeate your whole kitchen, if not the entire house: this gives you a preview of how it’ll taste once the whole thing is done!

Ingredients include: Tomatoes, mozzarella balls, fresh rosemary, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.

Why spend all that time in the kitchen? Here are some side dishes for lobster ravioli that you can easily buy at the store. Remember to check the availability at your local store, as products may vary.

These Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red Lobster are the number one reason people keep coming back to their establishment.

Ingredients include: Olive oil, lemon juice, honey, arugula, and honey.

This Jiffy Corn Casserole recipe is a Southern classic that we can’t get enough of! It goes well with just about anything and is pretty easy to prep.

Do take note that cornbread is usually eaten by hand, but not so much with this recipe. The delicious end result of this recipe has a pudding-like consistency, which requires it to be eaten with a spoon.

Ingredients include: Jiffy cornbread mix, canned cream corn, canned whole kernel corn, sour cream, and cheddar cheese.

This recipe for Seafood Chowder is one of my go-to’s! Melt-in-your-mouth tender shrimp, fish, and scallops combine in a creamy white wine broth with veggies.

Ingredients include: Cod, sea scallops, shrimp, bouillon chicken, and canned corn.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy side dish/appetizer that’s a sure crowd-pleaser, look no further than these classic Maryland Crab Cakes. These delicious bite-sized cakes are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and will complement your lobster ravioli perfectly.

Ingredients include: Saltine crackers, onion, butter, old bay seasoning, and mustard.

Is it citrus season and you’re looking for something to do with all that fruit you have on you? Then this recipe for Citrus Salad is for you. We’ll maximize your selection of fruit; anything from blood oranges to grapefruit can be used, and drown them in a pleasantly sharp, ginger honey dressing emulsified in quality olive oil with the juice from the leftover citrus peels.

Give it a generous sprinkle of crumbled feta and pistachios, and you’re done!

Ingredients include: Grapefruit, mint, oranges, pistachio, and avocado.

I randomly chanced across a recipe for Camembert Pretzel Bun sandwiches on the internet and was honestly shocked at how many people in the comments were asking for the recipe for the Pretzel Buns alone!

So if any of those people are currently reading this, here’s the recipe for Laugenbrötchen (Pretzel Buns). It (the recipe) results in a delicious bun with a crust that’s beautifully browned, with a soft, buttery center, and crowned with rough sea salt.

Ingredients include: Flour, yeast, sea salt, baking soda, water, and butter.

Next up, we have Shrimp Scampi: the iconic Italian-American dish that prominently features large, juicy shrimp in garlic butter white wine sauce. It tastes amazing and will pair nicely with your lobster ravioli!

Ingredients include: Large shrimp, lemon, parsley, dry white wine, olive oil, and butter.

Not only does this recipe for Shrimp Toast taste amazing, but they look amazing as well. The recipe originates from Hong Kong and features shrimp paste, which is a common Cantonese staple, slathered over white bread and then toasted until golden brown.

Yes, it tastes as good as it sounds! 

Ingredients include: Shrimp, tortillas, arrowroot powder, sesame seeds, and coconut aminos.

This is my sauce, and it’s a good starting off point for a creamy, tangy, Italian-cheese heavy sauce that rivals the famous restaurant’s—the OG, if you will.  There are also tips here for thickening an alfredo sauce if yours has come out too thin and isn’t clinging to your pasta very well.

Ingredients include: Heavy cream, butter, high-quality parmesan, asiago, and black pepper.

Rich, robust, and spicy, this arrabbiata sauce has all of the tomato-y goodness of the finest marinara with a noticeable kick!

Ingredients include: Tomatoes, basil, garlic cloves, tomato paste, and olive oil.

This is the brainchild of Renee and our photographer, Tabitha. It’s so easy; you’ll wonder why you haven’t been making a simple lemon and garlic butter sauce all this time. It goes beautifully over cooked vegetables before serving, over chicken, simmered with nearly any fish filet, and more. 

If you like it lemony-er, use the lemon zest, not the juice, because you don’t want it to get too thin.

Ingredients include: Lemons, butter, garlic, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.

Skip the lemon and go straight for the sage! Sometimes you gotta pick one, and sage pairs up well with the light sweet flavors of seafood, too. Butter is my theme here and I’m not afraid to admit it. 

This recipe uses aromatic fresh sage and minced garlic, and you can totally swap that out if you want. It’s not that easy to find economical fresh sage where I’m at, so I go for the spice jar when I really want that special flavor.

Ingredients include: Fresh sage, unsalted butter, minced garlic, and pepper.

Here’s a perfect side for absolutely any meal: Garlic Knots. They’re scrumptious little knots of dough that are smothered in butter, garlic, and parmesan cheese and then baked to golden-brown perfection!

Ingredients include: Pizza dough, butter, dried oregano, butter, and parmesan cheese.

If you’re serving guests and suddenly realize you need soup to complete the meal, never fear. This recipe for New England Clam Chowder is quick and easy to make! Juicy clams are bathed in a creamy white soup together with bacon, which lends its distinct flavor and adds some contrast to the dish.

Reap the compliments and bask in the knowledge that the soup your guests are thoroughly enjoying was a last-minute addition!

Ingredients include: Clam juice, bacon, canned clams, russet potatoes, and celery.

Are you interested in #26, but the white sauce doesn’t appeal to you? We got you covered! This recipe for Manhattan Clam Chowder calls for tomato sauce, which results in a delicious, savory red sauce that’s sure to fill the bill.

Ingredients include: Vegetable broth, bacon, bay leaf, carrots, and canned clams.

This recipe for Italian Crab Salad On Greens is all about, you guessed it! Crab!

Sweet and juicy crab meat is perfectly accentuated by crunchy greens and earthy avocado, resulting in an explosion of texture and flavor that’s oh-so-refreshing with an ample infusion of seafood savor.

Ingredients include: Lump crab meat, avocado, baby arugula, cherry tomatoes, and green beans.

It’s amazing how versatile vegetables can be once they’re roasted: made into salads, as side dishes, or perhaps as a quick meal. Green beans are an excellent example of this.

They come out crisp-tender when roasted, and the seasoning doesn’t run off as tends to happen with other veggies, they bake in instead, resulting in a potent flavor bomb!

Ingredients include: Green beans, garlic powder, olive oil, parmesan cheese, and salt.

I’m a fan of offering many things to eat at dinner.  It doesn’t even have to be a special occasion. But having a variety of foods means we get to try things and keep them fresh and new. 

This is one of those times when you get warm, homemade bread, a yummy seafood-forward appetizer, and a filling side all in one.

Ingredients include: Lump crab meat, old bay, Worcestershire sauce, crescent rolls, and cream cheese.

If you liked the idea of #29, but want to grill instead, this one’s for you! Not only do you get that crisp-tender feel you’re after, but you also get a nice char on the outside of your veggies that’s simply irresistible!

Ingredients include: Red bell peppers, orange bell peppers, corn, red onion, and zucchini.

Fresh and flavorful, the recipe for Lemon Parmesan Kale Salad is a guaranteed hit! It’s lemony and garlicky, coated with parmesan, and dusted with crushed croutons for added texture.

Ingredients include: Kale, garlic, lemon juice, black pepper, and salt.

Stir-fried vegetables have always been popular as the resulting dish is often tasty enough to convert a good percentage of the picky eaters out there.

Stir-frying add this smoky, savory flavor to the irresistible dish. Yet this recipe calls for mustard greens, which are quite bitter. That can be offset by adding just the right amount of sugar, not only eliminating the bitterness but resulting in a unique flavor combination as well!

Ingredients include: Mustard greens, red chili peppers, garlic, chicken bouillon, and sesame oil.

If you liked the idea of #32, but don’t have any kale and aren’t exactly looking for a salad, then this recipe for Quick Collard Greens will be perfect for you! When collard greens are sauteed in garlic and olive oil and then splashed with lemon, the dish almost tastes like something from the Mediterranean.

Ingredients include: Collard greens, garlic, lemon, red pepper flakes, and sea salt.

I was surprised to find that a lot of people aren’t willing to give Shrimp Cocktails a try. The hesitation is understandable; I mean, who would want to get drunk on something with meat in it?

But it’s all a big misunderstanding since, despite the name, Shrimp Cocktails are actually appetizers, not drinks, and there isn’t any alcohol in them. It’s a subtly sweet, spicy jumble of all your favorite Mexican flavors! 

Ingredients line: Tomatoes, shrimp, cucumber, hot sauce, and cilantro.

This recipe for Grapefruit Salad is a perfect example of contrasting flavors complementing each other. The bitterness from the grapefruit is offset by the earthy sweetness of the avocado, in turn, the tanginess of the grapefruit livens up the earthiness from the avocado, while the feta’s saltiness acts like a referee in between.

Ingredients include: Grapefruit, avocado, baby greens, honey, and lemon juice.

I can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia whenever I see the pinned image for this recipe. Taking you back to a time of carefree days, home-cooked meals, and vehement refusals to eat veggies.

In hindsight, I wonder why the refusals were so ardent back then, given that peas taste so gosh-darn good. In any case, this recipe for Sauteed Peas is simple, rustic, and delicious.

Ingredients include: Frozen peas, fresh dill, onion, chicken broth, and garlic.

Straight out of the can and into the pan! This is our very own recipe for Skillet Corn, which you can prep quickly and cook even quicker. Or you could choose to cook it a little longer to let a little char form for that smoky, tasty flavor. Whichever path you take, the results are ultimately the same: delicious.

Ingredients include: Canned sweet corn, salt, pepper, butter, and oil.

Grilled Tomatoes go with everything. Not at all surprising since it’s the vegetable (it was ruled a vegetable in terms of culinary application) from which one of the most popular condiments in the world is derived: ketchup.

Grilled Tomatoes are awesome since they can go on anything from burgers to soups to salads or as snacks on their own.

Ingredients include: Beefsteak tomatoes, garlic powder, parsley, salt, and pepper.

To marinate something is to let it soak in a flavoring liquid of some sort for a period of time. This results in whatever you’re marinating to acquire the flavor of whatever you were marinating with.

This means that in this recipe for Marinated Tomatoes, your tomatoes, already tasty to begin with, take on even more pique from the marinade, resulting in a positive flavor bomb!

Ingredients include: Tomatoes, basil, garlic, rosemary, and red onion.

Baked Zucchini Fritters are easy to prep and make great appetizers or snacks. These come out cheesy, crisp, and with the idea that you are eating an actual vegetable alongside a big plate of delicious lobster ravioli carbs.

Perfect as a smoky side to lobster ravioli, this BLT Salad is a delicious and easy way to enjoy the beloved flavors of a BLT without the bread.

Ingredients include: Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and croutons.

We’ve been eating this caesar salad like crazy the last few weeks. Something so lively and crisp about the dressing, with the simple addition of croutons and parmesan cheese. Of course it goes with nearly everything (like our lunch of chicken nuggets, even), but with a lobster ravioli, it’s going to be great.

I think it’s the pop of lemon, mustard, and Worcestershire. 

Ingredients include: Romaine, dijon mustard, shaved parmesan, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon.

Beer bread was the first bread I ever made, and the beer is what gave it all that lift instead of yeast.  So it’s in the category of quick bread, but it is still a sturdy, easy bread that holds butter like crazy. 

Ingredients include: All-purpose flour, beer, baking powder, sugar, and unsalted butter.

These little bell peppers are the perfect size for an air fryer. So if you are looking at the bottom of a bag and you could use a simple veggie option with a nice char on it, this is a good one.

Ingredients include: Mini bell peppers, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Savor a nourishing Winter Salad with Tangy Homemade Vinaigrette. Make a big one and divide into a side salad for lobster ravioli. Packed with nutrient-rich greens, this salad features a delightful mix of textures and flavors, including crisp apples, juicy pomegranate arils, creamy goat cheese, and crunchy pecans. 

The tangy homemade vinaigrette, made from red wine vinegar, honey, and Dijon mustard, ties the ingredients together with a burst of flavor. This colorful, delicious, and easy-to-make salad will brighten any table. 

Ingredients include: Napa cabbage, kale, pomegranate arils, carrots, apples, and dijon mustard.

Bloody Marys aren’t just for brunch; this zesty recipe is going to hammer home some serious flavor. From the seafood-supportive Old Bay to the horseradish, citrus, and a bunch of other incredible spices, if you want a memorable drink to come alongside that lobster ravioli luncheon, wow. 

Plus a drink with bacon? 

I’m in!

Ingredients include: Bacon, coriander, celery salt, Old Bay, V8, and red peppers.

So one of the great things about the perfect cocktail that goes with pasta is that it has to do several things:

  • Accentuate the flavor
  • Either cut through the richness or be mild enough to not compete with it
  • Stand on its own or stand aside

And an Aperol Spritz has all of the sharp, citrus, sweet, and even bitter notes that a drink really should have when coming alongside a plate of your favorite lobster ravioli.

Ingredients include: Aperol, Prosecco, tonic water, citrus juice, and orange slice.

Lobster and corn go hand in hand, and this simple skillet side dish has both the seafood’s signature seasoning and fresh corn off the cob. Yeah, it’s going to add a touch more starch to your pasta feast, but it will be so worth it. 

Ingredients include: Corn, Old Bay, butter, salt, and pepper.

While we have put lots of grilled foods here for the taking, this one is a bit different. Instead of breaking out the smoker, just add drops of liquid smoke to this simple cream cheese spread. 

Include your favorite dipping vegetables, flatbreads, or crackers alongside this rich, wonderfully seasoned spread, and you have a nice appetizer that appears before your lobster ravioli makes its way to the table.

Ingredients include: Cream cheese, liquid smoke, garlic seasoning blend, and salt.
