Recipe 13: Tortellini and Toasted Ravioli

Prep Time: 3 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins

This isn't really a recipe because everything here is pre-made, but I wanted to offer another pantry-friendly meal for those of us who are iced in.

Dinner at my house tonight

Tortellini, Toasted Ravioli and a nice salad.

AND!! 3 variations of krispy treats. (recipes 14 and 15)


1 tsp garlic salt
1 bag frozen tortellini (any variety)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 jar marinara
1 box frozen toasted ravioli
1 bag pre-cut salad (any variety)

**Parmesan cheese, one tomato, feta cheese and Parsley for garnish

1.) Heat oven to 425 (or whatever toasted ravioli box says)
2.) Follow boiling directions on tortellini, but add the garlic salt to the water before you add the pasta for extra flavor.
3.) Dice one tomato while the pasta cooks.
4.) Drain pasta and add spaghetti sauce. Set aside.
5.) Cook toasted ravioli according to directions on box. For extra crunch,  broil on High for 2 minutes after cook time.
6.) Rinse salad, add diced tomato and feta to salad. I like to add a bit of salt and pepper too because I don't really like salad dressing.
7.) Heat marinara in microwave safe bowl for 1 minute.
8.) Top tortellini portions with Parmesan cheese and parsley and serve!

For those who don't like the gooey stuff inside tomatoes, try this to see if you like this healthy food: quarter the tomato. Use a knife to cut out the seeds, then dice them. This simple step has allowed me to fall in love with tomatoes!
