|Butternut Squash Ravioli- |
with Basil Craisin Topping
It's been so hot, so humid and so uncomfortable these past 3 days. Yup, we are in a heat wave. Last night cheeseburgers on the grill sounded like a really great idea! Topped with a slice of a local fresh tomato sounded even better! Looking online at the weather I saw that our local weathermen warned us of a severe thunderstorm coming to our area. Suddenly, the sky looked not so pleasant and there was a strong breeze. Plans to enjoy that cheeseburger were put on hold and quickly a pot of water was placed on the stove to boil. Luckily, I had a package of fresh Butternut Squash Ravioli in the fridge! I boil it for 5 minutes rather than the 4 minutes that are recommended. While suddenly the thunder and lightning was all around us, it took so little time to get dinner on the table along with a fresh fruit salad. We sat down to eat. Before we could take that first bite, our power went out. About 8 hours later it was restored.
I add dried Basil, Craisins and Olive Oil for a great taste to the prepared Butternut Squash Ravioli. Click here for recipe.
It's always a great idea to have a package of quick to prepare Ravioli in the fridge. You just never know when it will come to the rescue. That cheeseburger with a slice of local fresh tomato? Oh, it's on the menu for tonight!
We will Enjoy!
