About the recipe
Okay, here’s the secret to this stupendous recipe – use store-bought ready made ravioli. That’s right, just pick up a pack of fresh ravioli from any grocery store in the deli section. Get any variety you like – butternut squash and caramelized onion? Cheese ravioli? Mushroom ravioli? Artichoke ravioli? Any variety will do. Then grab a bag of baby spinach, garlic cloves, and a little Parmesan cheese. All you need now is olive oil and chili flakes. The rest is easy as can be.
Start with warming the olive oil. Saute garlic, chili flakes and spinach until the greens are wilted. Next boil the ravioli according to package directions – it takes just 3-5 minutes for the pasta pillows to cook! Drain and add them to the spinach and gently toss together. Top with Parmesan and sprinkle of black pepper. That’s it! Super delicious, comforting and you get a good dose of healthy greens too.
