Ravioli with Mushroom Red Sauce (Quik and Easy Meal)


I always keep something for quick and easy meals in my fridge, so in case when I come home late from work we can have something in fast for our dinner. (Tom said: If I tried to cook, we'd have frozen burritos and canned peas.)

We bought a pack of grilled chicken with mozzarella cheese ravioli from Costco last week. Since I got home late today and was so tired from work, I decided to cook this lazy meal for our dinner tonight. It only took me 5 minutes of preparation, and 30 minutes for the cooking time.


I have also included a pasta/noodle machine in my wish list - so I will make my own version of ravioli from scratch one day! :-p (editor's note: Sounds like the kind of present we'd all enjoy! hehe!)

1. 1lb of grilled chicken with mozzarella cheese ravioli

2. Mushroom sauce
i) 1 tbsp olive oil
ii) 1 cup of chopped sweet onion
iii) 300g fresh whole white mushroom
iv) 1 can - 751g Hunt's Garlic and Herb spaghetti sauce
v) Some basil and parsley flakes (dried or fresh)
vi) some black pepper and salt to taste
vii) Some shredded mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese for topping

Steps :

1. Heat a sauce pan, add in olive oil.
2. Fragrant the chopped onion, stir in whole mushrooms. Cook for 2 minutes.
3. Pour in spaghetti sauce, bring to boil, add in basil and parsley flakes.
4. Simmer for 30 minutes, pepper and salt to taste.
5. Meanwhile, boil a quart of water, cook the ravioli for about 3~4 minutes or until it reach your desired tenderness. Drained and set aside.
6. When the sauce is done, top the mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese on the ravioli, scoop the mushroom sauce to the top of it.
7. Serve warm

  4. I made homemade raviolis once and they were so good! I am plannig on making some more soon... The great thing is that they freeze well. You can make a huge batch! :)

    I hope you are going to get a pasta machine.
