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!
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!
