He shows us how to make four-ingredient butternut squash ravioli in a buttery sage sauce and fresh spinach pesto pasta with Pecorino cheese.

Confession: After a long day of cooking on set, the last thing I want to do is cook dinner for myself. I often head to my cousin Tracy's house. One of my favorite things she makes is this creamy spinach pesto — it's so easy to whip up and so delish!

This is the sort of dish you can make after a long day at work (it can be made from start to finish in less than 20 minutes!) but is bougie enough to serve at a dinner party. Although there are only four ingredients, each pairs perfectly with the others. Be sure to use European-style butter which has a higher percentage of fat!
