I came across this before I quit editing. I wanted to share it with you. My editor shared this over on Facebook –
Your friendly neighborhood Editor is back. Today, I have an easy recipe to share. This is something I imagine Hope and her friends at the church serving sometime. It’s a great way to dress up a simple can of Chef Boyardee Mini Ravioli. There are many variations you can use for this, but all are delicious. I usually use Italian Sausage, but you can use any meat of your choice or no meat at all. I love it because it’s quick, easy, and no measuring required. All ingredient’s are added to your desired taste. Here’s what you need:
1 large can of Mini Ravioli (any brand works, but i prefer CBD)
2-3 Italian Sausages (or your choice of meat)
1 small can of mushrooms (pieces and stems, or slice up some fresh ones)
A dash of chopped onion to taste
A healthy sprinkle of basil
About a teaspoon of minced garlic (can also use fresh or from the spice rack, again – to desired taste)
A generous amount of shredded mozzarella (or other favorite cheese)
1 deep frying pan/skillet (Not the one you use to smack those frustrating characters over the head! You might need it, and it would really make a mess if it was full of ravioli at the time.)
First, cook the sausages about 85-90% done. You want them solid enough to cut easily without the insides squishing out. Remove from pan and slice into bite size medallions. Return sausage to pan and add mushrooms, garlic, onion, and basil
Add can of Ravioli, stir in until mixed well. Bring to a low boil and simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Top with shredded cheese and serve. From prep to table is less than 30 minutes.
An alternative to the stove top method is to prepare ingredients in a baking dish, except cheese, and bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes. Turn off oven, add shredded cheese and return to warm oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted on top.
I recommend doubling the recipe for more than 2 adults. Hubby and I usually eat an entire can for dinner for just the two of us.
What would you serve if you were in Hope’s little group?
