Dinner Challenge – Night Two

Tonight we scraped through the fridge and freezer and put together a simple, but very satisfying meal.

Cheese Ravioli with Garlic Bread and Red Peppers

Tristan made some frozen cheese ravioli and topped it with Wegman’s vegetarian-friendly “Grandpa’s Sauce” (one of the best pasta sauces I’ve ever had from a jar!) and fresh red peppers. He also made a few pieces of garlic bread using fresh garlic. Here’s to a successful second dinner using odds and ends from the kitchen!

Plat Du Jour: Zesty Ravioli

Last night, Ambre and I spent most of the usual allotted cooking time doing some much needed grocery shopping. Therefore I decreed we eat a fast and simple meal: Zesty Ravioli. Utilizing canned diced tomatoes with garlic and onion, frozen cheese stuffed ravioli, fresh spinach and some heavy cream produces a very tasty and very quick meal. The original recipe calls on Jalapeno to add the zest but I found that since the heat varies much between each Jalapeno, it is much easier on the cook to use cayenne pepper and get an effect just as good.
