Creamy Ravioli with Peas and Salami


            Sometimes I'm just a busy mom with not a lot of time in the kitchen.....this is sad
     but true. I love to cook at home. I enjoy it much more than going out. But, some nights
             dinner needs to be simple and easy. This is one of those recipes. You can also
              make a lot of adjustments to fit to your liking....I love this dish. The salami
           gives a little extra depth. Dinner doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious.

                                                   Creamy Ravioli with Peas and Salami

            1 20oz package of four cheese ravioli
            1jar of alfredo sauce
            1 can diced tomatoes, with garlic, basil and oregano
            1/2 package frozen baby peas
            6 slices of salami, cut into chunks.

        1) In a pot boil salted water...add ravioli cook according to package.
        2) Add peas to the boiling pasta and cook for 2 minutes.
        3) Drain and put back in pot.
        4) Add alfredo and tomatoes and heat until hot. Enjoy.
        Note, you can add parsley and parm cheese.

  36. Yes, simple and easy is definitely the way to go when you get home late from work and you don't feel like cooking. Ordering takeout not only gets expensive but it's also so unhealthy for you.

    I love this recipe, and I'm sure it will come in handy during my weeknights!

  37. Everyone needs a few quick dinner recipes to put together on busy days. This does look so delicious and the peas make it so springy and beautiful.

  38. I love this easy dinner! Such a nice way to dress up ravioli. I'll admit it, sometimes I don't want to prepare a giant meal when I come home from work, and this sounds like the perfect alternative :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. What a super yummy way to prepare ravioli! Love this, Val. You always come up with the best flavor combinations!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Mmmmmmm.... this looks soooo comforting and wonderful. It's kind of a dreary day and I may just have to make this tonight.

  41. Simple yet gorgeous and delicious meals are great. My kids went through a salami phase where they could not get enough. I went to Costco and bought an enormous amount the exact day they decided they were over salami. This is the perfect way to use up my salami and reintroduce my fickle kids to an old love.

  42. I love everything you conjure up. You give me ideas I never would have come up with on my own, thank you! =) Looks DIVINE!! =)

  43. This is a perfect weeknight (or in-a-hurry) dinner, which means it is right up my alley! Not to mention this looks WAY more appetizing than 95% of the food I can eat out here in our new little town :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. This looks so delicious! Salami in our household usually wanders onto some fresh baguette and is then gobbled up, but I need to save some and try out this recipe

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've been scrolling through your blog in awe at your gorgeous photographs...I love this one, but they are all just beautiful! And all of the food looks absolutely scrumptious! Makes me want to cook everything here! ♥
