Tonight’s dinner was really easy. I mixed it all up, put it in the oven and had time to take Brooklyn for a walk!
Recipe (From Taste of Home Casseroles)
1- 25 oz package frozen cheese ravioli
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups milk
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup minced fresh basil (I cheated and just added dried basil)
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided into cups
3/4 cup grated parmesan, divided
2 1/2 cups marinara or spaghetti sauce
1. Cook the ravioli according to the package directions
2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, salt and nutmeg until smooth; gradually add milk and wine. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in the basil, 1 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
3. Drain ravioli; toss with sauce mixture. Transfer to a greased 13-in x 9-in baking dish. Top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce; sprinkle with remaining cheeses.
4. Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover, bake 5 – 10 minutes longer or until bubbly. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
For dessert… a leftover lemon poppy seed bar topped with some strawberries!
OUTFIT OF THE DAY
I’m a convert… a jean convert. I’ve worn them to work everyday this week. It’s not like I’m NOT wearing my other clothes though- I actually haven’t worn the exact same outfit once for over a month now.
