lemon-basil-sage ravioli.

I find myself being drawn to the same food blogs over and over again. Whatever it is, there are certain people who I find myself thinking, “Yes, I could eat in your house every night and be perfectly content.” Two Peas and Their Pod is one of those blogs.

A few weeks ago they had a post on ravioli. Growing up, ravioli was one of my favorite meals. Cheese-filled pasta? Yep! I can’t eat pasta in such quantities anymore, but the husband would be happy if I made it every night! So I made this ravioli as a nice treat for him, and for myself!

This ravioli is nothing special but SO special at the same time! It is quick and easy and delicious. The ravioli is store-bought – ain’t nobody got time to make that (just kidding … it would really fun to make ravioli some day)! But this sauce makes your pasta taste fresh, homemade, gourmet, and other good food words.
