easter ravioli for dinner

There's an artisan pasta company next door to us and they occasionally give us a few packages of pasta. Nice perk, but it doesn't really make up for the noise and traffic we have to deal with.  But we won't have to deal with that for much longer; we're in the process of buying a house.

Tonight I cooked the two packages of Easter ravioli they gave us a month or so ago.  It's egg-shaped and comes in green, yellow, and pink pastel colors. Pretty interesting too look at and quite colorful.  

I made my own marinara sauce and served it over the pasta with some grated Parmesan cheese.  As you can see, I only put three of the raviolis on my plate.  I'm really not supposed to eat pasta, and I normally don't, but I wanted to try these.

The cheese inside was delicious and they were much better than the standard store-bought ravioli.  But I found myself squeezing out the cheese and leaving the pasta behind.  I ate one and half raviolis and ate just the cheese from the rest.  And I ate the sauce and Parmesan cheese, too.

I'm just not a pasta person.  Never was.  But even less so after surgery.  It's lost it's charm.  But give me a manicotti or stuffed shell and I'll suck out all the cheese!

Looks kinda pretty, doesn't it?

  1. Both the pasta and sauce was good. I was full after 3/4 plate, but of course i ate it all...
