Raviolis anyone?

Next time you go to your local grocery store you may see packaged raviolis, pick up a bag and follow my easy recipe for a delicious lunch or dinner. It may seem easy to purchase a bag of these and simply add in your favorite sauce… right?? Well don’t. I always think about how can I change this dish or personalize it. That can be achieved by basically adding in your favorite veggies, some more garlic or fresh herbs.

Never settle is what I’m saying ;)

I've made this recipe with the mini cheese raviolis from Trader Joes & with the Frozen Spinach & Cheese Raviolis from Costco.. and both made a yummy dish.

Cheese Raviolis in a Veggie Tomato Sauce

1 Jar (favorite) Tomato Sauce
1 lb. of  Cheese Ravioli
1 or 2 Yellow Squash (diced)
1-2 Tb of Grape Seed oil or Extra V. Olive Oil
1 garlic glove (minced)
3 slices red onion (diced)
3 stems of Scallions (chopped)
2 Tbsp of Fresh Basil
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Parmesan Cheese

Boil water in a large pot for the Raviolis and season with salt.
**Always season water when cooking pasta
Add Raviolis and cook accordingly. Meanwhile, chop the veggies and saute in a large skillet. Adding in garlic, onion, & scallions cook for 2-3 minutes ( lightly season with Salt & P).

Transfer cooked raviolis to a strainer or colander and set aside.
Add tomato sauce to veggies and bring to a boil (about 5 mins.)
Chop your basil!
** Taste sauce & adjust seasonings to your preference

Add Raviolis and toss to combine, sprinkle in cheese and basil.

SERVE & Enjoy!
