Workin' It Out

Melting Away & Finding Myself

What I Made Monday

I’ve decided I will never have time to post what I made Monday ON Monday… but that is ok, because I like the title. For all you know, I could have made it Friday! Anyway, I made a very yummy, healthy & super easy recipe Monday.  SO easy.  If you can boil water and turn on the oven, you can make this.  If you trust your kid to handle boiling water, they can even make it.  E-A-S-Y.

I would say the recipe is courtesy of Emeals, but I have made this before I knew Emeals existed, they just put it in my recipe rotation for this week.  (I still love ya Emeals and truly appreciate the recipes you list that are just so easy I can replicate it from memory in the future.)

Baked Ravioli (made by me, re-inspired by Emeals)
1 package of frozen cheese ravioli (or meat filled, I have used both), about 24 oz.
1 jar of pasta sauce (I personally love a good garlicky pasta sauce)
1 package of shredded mozzarella, about 2 C.  If you want to make it skinnier, reduce to 1 C.

THREE ingredients – what is easier than that????

Cook the ravioli according to package directions.  Drain. Place in sprayed 9×13 baking dish.  Open jar of pasta sauce, pour over cooked ravioli.  Open package of mozzarella, sprinkle over pasta sauce.  Stick it in the oven. Bake about 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees or until bubbly.

If you wanted to get all wild & crazy, you could probably sprinkle on some extra Italian seasoning or fresh basil from the garden (which I just remembered we have in our garden… that would have been so good!) or add some chopped green peppers, fresh mushrooms, etc.  But the 3 ingredient version is pretty darn tasty!

I was enjoying making such an easy recipe that I forgot to take pictures until I was pulling the gooey cheesy yumminess out of the oven:

 

I served it with a simple lettuce & tomato salad:

I didn’t enter this recipe into MyFitnessPal to calculate nutrition info, but the entire recipe makes 6 servings and I estimate it to be about 325 calories per serving, depending on how much cheese you use!

Enjoy!

What was for dinner at your house?
