Creamy Raviolo Bake 011

This ravioli bake is so delicious! I like a lot of sauce when I have pasta, so you could probably go easier on the sauce if you like less. Mixing cream cheese into pasta sauce turns this dish into a delicious dish you will come back to over and over again. Plus it’s fast and simple to make.

 

It’s really simple, combine a jar or less if you like it less saucy and cream cheese in a sauce pan until the cream cheese melts.

Add more sauce and top with cheese, bake and top with fresh basil if you have it, Dinner done in less than 30 minutes, and most of that time, you’re not working!

Creamy Ravioli Bake

1 28 oz. jar of marinara sauce

4 oz. cream cheese

1 tbsp. oregano

1/2 package of frozen ravioli

4 oz. grated mozzarella cheese

2 TBSP. Parmesan Cheese

In a sauce pan, combine sauce, cream cheese, and oregano, melt cream cheese.  In a large pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil, boil ravioli 3 to 4 minute, drain.  In a baking dish, add a thin layer of sauce, top with ravioli, add remaining sauce and top with cheese, bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

This makes a great Meatless Monday meal, if you use cheese or spinach ravioli and a tomato and basil marinara sauce.

Triple Berry Smoothie

smoothie & ham cassarole 013

 

This is seriously one of the best smoothies I’ve ever made.  After Christmas, I need some serious detoxing from food and this smoothie, fits the bill!  It’s made with a baby kale & spinach mix, along with a banana, triple mixed berries, almond milk, water and Chia seeds.

The Chia seeds are full of fiber and will help keep you full. With this smoothie, you’re getting great servings of veggies, fruit, fiber & calcium. But the triple berries flavor this smoothie perfectly!

 

Triple Berry Smoothie

2 cups of baby spinach & kale mix

1 cup of almond milk

1 cup of water

1 banana

1 1/2 cups of triple berry mix, or whatever berries you have

In your blender combine spinach/kale, almond milk & water, blend until smooth.  Then add banana and berries, blend.  After everything is smooth, add Chia seeds and blend well. Pour into a Blingy cup you husband gave you for Christmas and take pictures of it with the camera your awesome daughter gave you for Christmas!
