Baked Filled Pasta


Entering into a supermarket, I realized the rows and rows of convenience food products available. Instant noodles, pasta packets and even rice! I am an advocate of “fresh is better”-especially since I have grown to learn how to love food and lose weight at the same time. However, while I like to take time to prepare meals and try to steer my shopping trolley away from them, it is proving to be difficult.

Filled chilled pasta is one of my emergency stash of food, together with instant noodles of course. It’s not a “every week” thing but certainly a packet can help on tired nights. I’m also surprise to see that a packet serves 2, because between AR and myself…we have a packet for dinner AND lunch.

This packet has spinach and ricotta ravioli. What I did was to quickly cooked it and stir through chopped pieces of lean bacon, mushrooms and lots of spinach. Sprinkle with some cheese, push it in the oven for 30 minutes (while u shower or put your feet up) and serve. Easy.
