Then there are your restaurant-style pillows of perfection – hand cranked homemade pasta dough delicately rolled, cut, and stuffed with imported meats, cheeses, veggies and herbs, all tossed in a light-but-not-too-clingy sauce with just the right amount of seasoning. YUM. Factor in convenience and you can’t deny the open-up-a-can-and-heat version. Factor in price, and you can’t always afford the restaurant version.
Then there’s the Cooking Light version: Heirloom Tomato and Spinach Ravioli. It’s a happy medium of convenient, healthy, delicious, and affordable. The classic combination of fresh, juicy heirloom tomatoes and part-skim mozzarella cheese make even the coldest days seem brighter, made creamy and rich with light ricotta cheese and sautéed spinach. Just pop these guys in boiling water for a few minutes and before you know it you’ve got a pot of elegantly delicious ravioli surrounded by a feather-light dough. Fill up on the warmth of our heirloom tomato and spinach ravioli, and make it yours with a splash of extra-virgin olive oil, freshly ground black pepper, and a sprinkle of rustic Parmesan cheese. Serve alongside (or on top!) of a bright, crisp green salad, and an even crisper glass of white wine for a fancy restaurant experience without all the fuss (or bill!!).
