Hello! How’d your Monday go?

Mine was good except I’m still sitting all day at work and (TMI?) my buns are sore! I don’t know how I used to do it because sitting in a chair for 8 hours is just not for me. The good news is that they’re finishing (hopefully!) my new cube tomorrow, which means I’ll have sweet, sweet standing freedom at work soon enough! :mrgreen:

Tonight I revisited the pasta feast I was going to make for dinner last Friday, but got too full on chips and granola bars to make, Chicken & Prosciutto Ravioli with Marinara Sauce!


I picked this up because I actually thought it was Butoni pasta and I had a free coupon for it. The cashier at the store gave me the discount so I didn’t think anything of it until I got home and realized it was a completely different brand!

I pressed on because, Buitoni or not, it still looked pretty scrumptious. :)


Plus it was filled with prosciutto and two types of cheeses. Hello!


A couple minutes in some boiling water is all it took to go from package to plate!


I topped the ravioli with my favorite marinara sauce, Gino’s.

Gino’s is a local restaurant that sells their sauces, salad dressings and other foods at grocery stores in the area. Everything I’ve tried has been completely to die for.

I actually had the pleasure of dining in their newest restaurant location for work last week and was in HEAVEN! Fried ravioli, homemade cavatelli, sauce galore – and the crème brulee. THE CREME BRULEE!!! Locals, it’s in the West Glen Town Center – go NOW!

Anyways, the sauce turns anything it touches to pure gold – not that this ravioli needed it.


It was salty from the prosciutto and cheese, and the bed of sautéed spinach I served them on lent a bright, fresh flavor to the whole dish.


Sprinkled with a parmesan herb blend on top, this was a fantastic, easy meal that came together in minutes. Word to the wise – the package says it’s two portions, but it’s two small portions. Plan to have something else to serve!  


Other then that – two thumbs up!


Well it’s looking a wee bit cloudy out there, but I think I’m going to take a chance and ride my bike up to the library to return Twilight. Lord knows I don’t need any late fees! ;)

Tonight I’m also helping Ben make salsa for a "Salsa-Off" at work tomorrow. He’s debating putting in a habanero pepper. I’m scared!

Have a good night!


What’s your current favorite restaurant? What type of food do they serve? What’s your favorite dish?

I think my favorite restaurant is Miyabi 9. I could eat their salmon nigiri all day, every day!
