    Loves To Cook but NOT clean up's Note:

    This is a variation of a recipe from Giada de Laurentis on "Everyday Italian". She used proscioutto and arugula and I substituted bacon and fresh baby spinach. She only used cheese ravioli but I used beef ravioli too. I also added the green onions because I had some that I needed to use. This turned out awesome and I had to post this to keep for future use. I hope you enjoy!

      I left out the onions, other than that recipe made as written. Good combination of ingredients, and had good flavor. The sauce was good too. Kids really enjoyed too. Easy and nice side dish. Made for Pick a Chef 2012.

      This recipe was super easy, and so much better than eating ravioli with dull tomato sauce or redundant alfredo. I used watercress instead of spinach, and that was great. Bacon was awesome with the chicken and mushroom ravioli I used, and the fresh garlic and tomatoes worked together to make the perfect combination for an exceptional, carefree weekday dinner.
