Baked Ravioli


Sometimes the best dinners are the kind you just throw together. Since we have just gone through the loss of power, and mess that Hurricane Sandy (no relation!) sent our way,  I decided to make the good ol’ standby… frozen Ravioli. I made some of my home made Fresh & Simple Marinara (it only takes 15 minutes), and boiled some water for the ravioli. Then I thought, I’m going to make mine Baked Ravioli. The generator kept the fridge going during our loss of power, so I had plenty of Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese to use.

I used my new Lodge cast iron individual bakers and simply layered the sauce, ravioli and cheese. I baked some Ciabatta rolls I had in the freezer, and made garlic bread out of them. Viola! dinner!
