Quick Meal: Ravioli

What do you do when you’re starvin’ on a lazy Saturday afternoon and you’ve had it up to here with take out food? I’d say go pick up your lazy ass and whip something up in the kitchen. Give me just 15 minutes and you won’t be sorry.

Tips for the Lazy:

1. Buy ready-made ravioli. I got this from Bacchus Epicerie at Powerplant. It is my dream to make ravioli/pasta/pizza from scratch but until I get the kitchen of my dreams with all its splendor, then pre-cooked and ready-made would have to suffice.

2. Boil the ravioli according to package directions.

3. Chop some garlic and onions. Open a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of mushrooms (pieces and stems please. We’re on a lazy mode here and cutting up whole mushrooms is a no,no.)

4. In a pan, put some olive oil, about 3 tablespoons. Saute the garlic and onions.

5. Add the mushrooms, cook for 30 seconds.

6. Add the crushed tomatoes. Stir.

7. Season with a little sugar, some salt and pepper. Add herbs of your choice. Here I put oregano, basil and a little nutmeg. Taste. Adjust if necessary.

8. Drain the cooked ravioli and put under running water. Drain. Add the ravioli to your sauce and carefully mix it in. Serve with some toasted garlic bread from your favorite bakeshop and open a can of soda or juice and you’re all set.

I’d say that beats takeout food every time!

Oh, and because I was feeling a bit energized, I threw in this:
