    TAKE 5: Frozen Cheese Ravioi

    xxxxxx

    Any pasta lover is aware of ravioli – a yummy filling wrapped in a pasta cocoon. While I have specified cheese ravioli the title, any ravioli may be used – and they come with a variety of fillings. Frozen ravioli are available in 25-ounce bags. When they are on sale, stock up and stack a few in the freezer for those nights when you are desperate for dinner ideas. Ravioli are also available in the refrigerated section. Generally, the fresh ravioli take a bit longer to cook than the frozen ones so you will want to allow for this. Just follow package directions.

    Ravioli are just nuggets of pasta and cheese making them a blank slate waiting for the flavor of a good sauce. Whether you use the search box to search “sauce for ravioli,” or use the URL below, you will find any number of delicious sauces. Can you believe Creamy Pesto Sauce, Red Clam Sauce, Creamy Tomato Sauce (from Giada DeLaurentiis), or Yellow Split Pea Sauce? I say, let’s try them all! Here is the URL that contains lots of sauces for ravioli:

    I had difficulty limiting myself to just one sauce for sharing, but with autumn coming up, this seemed to be the perfect one. But try some of the others too. So many delish sounding ones!

    One more way to use ravioli – as an appetizer. These recipes are from the food network. In one the ravioli is given a coating and in the other it is fried plain. Either way, these ravioli are a bit difrerent and not hard to make at all.

    Here are some fantastic ways to use ravioli for a fast and delicious dinner menu. This stuffed pasta gives you a head start on your meal preparation! The first recipe includes a simple recipe for a not-too-spicy chili which makes up more than you need for the meal. You’ll use about 1/2 cup over each serving of ravioli; you can freeze the excess or carry the leftovers to lunch the next day. Or plan a chili meal for later in the week.

    Chili With Ravioli ~ A tomatoey, beany, and not too spicy chili is served over the ravioli.

    Ravioli Casserole ~ If you love cheese, you’ll love this one. There’s cheese in the ravioli, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese all mixed together in this one!

    " Not" Lasagna ~ Not real lasagna, that is, but a simple knock-off that has all the right taste and none of the time-consuming preparation.

    Greek-Style Beef and Cheese Ravioli ~ Greek olives in an Italian-style dish. Is this what they mean by “fusion?”

    Ravioli & Cabbage Soup ~ A hearty soup you’ll enjoy during the upcoming cooler weather!
