A trip to Trader Joe's ...
Tom and I took a quick trip to the new Trader Joe's grocery store in our neighborhood this morning. It's always good entertainment for the two of us. We manage to find all kinds of unusual gourmet treats at budget prices and today was no exception. We came home with a bag filled with our usual favorites, plus the ingredients to make this easy supper. Since I don't make homemade ravioli, I bought Trader Joe's fresh jumbo cheese ravioli for $2.50 a package and was pleased with the results.
JUMBO CHEESE RAVIOLI WITH SUN-DRIED TOMATOES AND BASIL
2 - 10 oz. pkgs. Trader Joe's Jumbo Cheese-stuffed ravioli
1/2 jar Trader Joe's Julienne sliced Sun-dried Tomatoes in olive oil
Handful of small fresh basil leaves from my garden
Red pepper flakes
Shaved Parmegiano-Regianno cheese
Prepare the ravioli according to the package directions. Drain pasta and return to cooking pot. Add sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes, fresh basil and shaved Parmegiano-Regianno cheese. Toss and serve with more cheese and red pepper flakes. Fast, easy and delicious!
