Oh, this little neglected blog of mine!
In some ways, I can't believe how long it's been since I was able to post here. But in other ways, I can believe it, and only too well... SO very much has happened in the last year and a half. Rather than one lengthy catch-up post, I will fill you in as I go along. But for now, I want to try to jump back in right where I am! So, I hope some of you will follow along with me, and I hope I can provide you with some yummy, taste-tested new recipes as we roll into a new school year and - my favorite season - fall!
Lately, I have taken on the project of attempting to organize my recipe
As mentioned, I tore this out of a magazine, and I have not been able to locate it online to link for you, but I will post the recipe and some pics for you to enjoy. Hope you'll try it, and hope your family loves it as much as we did!
Ravioli Casserole Uses: 9x13 baking dish or casserole pan
1 (20 oz) package refrigerated cheese, beef or chicken ravioli
1/2, to 3/4 of a (7 oz) jar oil-packed chopped sundried tomatoes, drained
2-3 cups chopped broccoli florets, to taste (frozen and uncooked is fine)
1.5 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1.5 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
2.5 cups milk
Grease pan (I used butter). Arrange ravioli in bottom of pan, and top evenly with tomatoes and broccoli. Combine cheeses and sprinkle these over broccoli. Whisk together milk and eggs (I added a little freshly ground pepper too) and pour over layers. Cover and chill for anywhere from 2-24 hours. Remove from fridge half an hour before baking. Bake uncovered at 350 for 40-45 minutes, or until top is golden and center is firm. Let stand about 10 minutes before cutting.
Notes: I used cheese ravioli this time because the recipe called for it, but I plan to use a chicken and spinach ravioli next time (one that we find at Costco) and I think it will be even more delicious. I'm a meat lover, so just felt like it needed some meat! But it was also great with the cheese ravioli. If you want it to mimic lasagna as closely as possible, try a beef ravioli and maybe some mozzarella cheese on top...it's a pretty flexible recipe!
