We got more snow today! We had about 2 more inches at our house when we got home, and then we had rain and a little sleet on top of that!
I was hoping it would get bad enough that work would close this afternoon, but no such luck :( I’m just happy the roads weren’t icy on the way home today.
Work was pretty uneventful today – especially this afternoon since I was basically the only one in the office. Almost everyone left early because of the weather, so I was actually able to get some stuff done and enjoy the quiet.
But I was so ready to come home, and ready for this dinner.
I finally made a dish that’s been intriguing me for a few weeks: A Lasagna with Ravioli.
Lasagna, with Ravioli?
I’d never tried it, but it definitely didn’t sound like a bad idea!
I’ve seen a few recipes for this (one is a Rachael Ray recipe), but I kind of just made it up as I went along tonight.
I picked up some frozen cheese ravioli this weekend, so while that was cooking, I mixed up a simple red sauce:
- 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
- 14 oz. tomato sauce
Once the pasta was finished, I layered the following in a baking dish:
- Layer of sauce
- Layer of ravioli
- Layer of spinach
- 1/2 cup of cheese
- 1/2 – 3/4 cups cheese
After layering everything in the dish, I baked it at 400 for about 25 minutes until the cheese was melty and browned :)
I definitely wouldn’t compare it to a normal lasagna, but it was pretty good. And I like the idea of baking ravioli in a sauce like this because you can add tons of veggies and have it all in one dish.
Time for me to get in pajamas and get ready for LOST. We are SO excited that it’s starting again tonight – we’ve been watching since the very first episode, and I can’t believe this is the last season!!!
I’m thinking there will be some popcorn during LOST and White Collar tonight ;)
What’s your favorite type of pasta?
