I’ve been saying it a lot lately – but it’s true – as a busy mom with hectic weeknight schedule, it’s really important to me to have recipes that are easy to prepare and that taste amazing.
This recipe takes a couple of quick and easy ingredient and dresses it up so that you feel like you’re eating a gourmet meal! Fresh frozen cheese ravioli takes just minutes to cook and a jar of Ragu Classic Alfredo sauce takes even less time to heat – which means whether you’re home late from karate classes or it was a long day in town, you can still have a great meal on the table in 15 minutes flat.
Better yet, this recipe is fancy enough that it’d be perfect at-home date night fare. Hmm, now that I think about it, it’d also be perfect for a ladies luncheon at church, or when your best friend comes to visit over lunch. Really, you can’t go wrong!
Family dinners together are so important! And with great products like Ragu to help you in your meal preparation, there’s no reason not to enjoy good food together every day!
Cheese Ravioli with Arugula, Feta, Pine Nuts, and Avocado
- 1 package frozen ravioli
- 1 jar Ragu Classic Alfredo Sauce
- 8 oz. arugula
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 1 avocado, peeled, sliced, and chopped
- 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
Bring salted water to a boil and cook ravioli according to package instructions. Meanwhile, pour sauce in a small pot and heat over medium low heat, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta and divide between four plates. Top with Ragu Classic Alfredo Sauce then place a small handful of arugula. Then, sprinkle with pine nuts, feta cheese, and avocado cubes.
I especially love the convenience and fresh taste that Ragu offers busy moms like me! And, I love that Ragu has no artificial flavors, colors, or high fructose corn syrup.
I’m sure you’ll love this recipe. My girls said I should make it more often!
