Butternut Squash Ravioli- with Basil Craisin Topping

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.  W
hile 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!
