I am often compliment on my ability to cook as if it’s some type of huge surprise. Maybe I don’t look like the type who cooks, I dunno. What I do know is that I’ve always been very good at following directions to create something, and when that something is a food dish, well, I guess compliments mean I followed directions successfully.
The other night I tried something sort of new. I was at Sam’s Club and one of the free sample people gave me a cup of this ravioli that was pretty darn good, so I decided to buy it to make for dinner this week: Spinach and Kale Ravioli by Pasta Prima.
I cook pasta at least once every other week so it’s not a big deal, but for this I decided to try something different. The package of the ravioli had directions for a sauce to be made with it, so I figure why not? Especially since the sauce was really simple:
Toss the ravioli in a pot of hot or boiling water. The package I had was so fresh the ravioli was almost falling apart after boiling for more than a few minutes
1/4 to 1/2 cup of olive oil in a skillet
Add 2 onions and 4 cloves of garlic and onions – diced (my stomach can’t handle onions, so I skipped them)
10 plum tomatoes – diced; add when the onions/garlic are browning
Cook and stir until hot, then add basil and salt/pepper to taste
Add some grated Parmesan cheese and you’re ready for a healthy, quick, easy, and delicious meal:
Even the kids ate it, and when you can get a six-year-old and two-year-old to both like a food, it’s a success. But of course I forgot to take pictures of that. Next time.
