Good SUPER foggy 45º drizzling morning.
Friday to Saturday we got just over and inch of rain...
Yesterday, first thing in the morning after all the rain it was clear and beautiful. Then, the fog rolled in again! Ugh. Since then we've gotten another 1/2" of rain.
Picture of the Day ... uh huh!
This frozen cheese-filled ravioli brings this lasagna to the dinner table in 45 minutes..... a spin on the Italian classic featuring spinach,pesto, and jarred Alfredo sauce.
1 6oz bag fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
1/3 cup refrigerated basil pesto
1 15oz jar Alfredo pasta sauce
1/4 cup vegetable or chicken broth
1 25oz pkg frozen cheese filled ravioli (do not thaw)
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
Chopped fresh basil leaves, if desired
Paprika, if desired
Heat oven to 375º. Spray 11x7 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In medium bowl toss spinach and pesto. In another bowl mix Alfredo sauce and broth. Spoon 1/3 of the sauce mixture, about 1/2 cup, into the baking dish. Top with half of the spinach mixture. Arrange half of the ravioli in a single layer over the spinach mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining sauce mixture.
Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer, until bubbly. Garnish with basil and paprika.
** Although the dish calls for frozen ravioli you can let the ravioli sit for about 5 minutes before preparing the recipe to allow the ravioli to separate more easily.
