Okay, I have this crazy idea for exchanging a few recipes. I’m in need of some new ones really badly. So, what I figure is I can post a cool recipe I know to be yummy and delicious and in return… you can leave me a comment with a delicious recipe of your own! But, remember, this works both ways. If you’re grabbing recipes from me… you better be leaving me some, too!!! Got it?!?!?!
So, here’s a favorite of mine (by the way, most of mine are completely and totally EASY!!):
Cheese Ravioli in Basil Cream Sauce:
1 (24 ounce) package of frozen cheese (or beef) ravioli
2 tablespoons of butter
3 green onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning
1 (10 ounce) can of mild Rotel
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
Now, before I go on, I want to let you in on a secret. Most of the time I make this, I use the generic brand of ravioli, minced garlic from a jar, dried basil, and sometimes for a lower-fat version 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. There, I said it!! Do with it what you will!
Okay, so to prepare:
Cook ravioli according to package directions; drain and keep warm.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large pan of medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Saute’ over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in Rotel, basil, and whipping cream. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese; add salt. Stir in ravioli, tossing to coat.
I usually serve this yummy dish with garlic bread (Pepperidge Farm – freezer section) and salad.
Idea!! Be sure to post a link on your blog back to this one so we get a ton of yummy recipes. The more the merrier, right!!! I’ll be posting a new recipe every Tuesday!!!
