There are some nights I’m so unmotivated to make dinner that I wish my family were cows so I could just send them to the backyard to graze on grass. Since I can’t do that, this is the next best option. Basically, I buy everything almost all premade then add some touches to make it taste better and did I mention it’s affordable?
- Frozen ravioli ($3)
- Loaf of French bread ($1 or 50cents on clearance) (hint: buy it a day old from the bakery. Half price and honestly, just as good)
- Large can of crushed tomatoes ($2.45) you want good quality if possible
- Small block of Mozzarella Cheese ($3)
- Dinner for a family of 4 (mind you 3 boys!) for under $10. And we had leftovers!
What makes this so quick is that ravioli cooks in about 3 minutes. To save more time, buy your cheese shredded, but I just slice mine with a knife. This is a new favorite in our house! Of course you can do variations of this dish by adding basil pesto to you bread or ravioli, using different cheeses, doing meat ravioli, yada yada yada…you are creative. With that said, go eat!
