My husband is a total carnivore, and me not so much. Since we’ve been married I will say that I have improved a lot in the meat eating department but it still isn’t my very favorite food. Poor Sam, he probably doesn’t get to eat meat as much as he would like. However, I don’t think he minds the meatless meals when they taste as delicious as this creamy ravioli. Seriously this is one tasty dish and it is very filling as a main course, especially when paired with a side salad. And also as a side note writing this post has taught me that I cannot spell the word ravioli. Because every time I type it, no matter how slowly I sound it out, that dang little wavy ride line appears. Sigh…my spelling hasn’t had a chance since that time I got a nosebleed in the first round of the fourth grade spelling bee.
Anyway, back to this yummy dish! You’ll start with a package of frozen ravioli and simply cook according to the package directions.
After the delicious smell of garlic has filled your kitchen add in some light cream and milk.
Heat through and season with salt and pepper.
Next slowly add in cheese from your favorite Italian blend and stir it all up until the cheese is fully melted. Throw in a little bit of parsley and basil, just because you can.
Yum-o. Look at that thick and creamy sauce. Toss your ravioli with the sauce and top with a sprinkle of pine nuts. This dinner comes together in a matter of minutes making it perfect for busy weeknights. Some steamed veggies or a salad are great sides and what more could you want from this meal?
