Pasta. That single word can bring so much comfort. It also happens to be easy and quick to prepare. So I can probably say without a doubt, pasta is my go to comfort food. Hands down. Today it’s a 15 Minute One Pan Ravioli Recipe that’s made light and fresh with tomatoes, white beans and basil. You can certainly load up some cheeses, asparagus, broccoli or your favorite pasta toppings here, but since it’s all about simple comfort food, I’m going with the basic simple ravioli recipe that warms my heart 🙂
This post is short, sweet and certainly delicious. I’ve been sick lately and that simply means everyday life is ten times harder. So while it’s nothing major outside of a sinus problem, it still has the ability to slow me down getting the kids ready for school, dropping, picking up, after school activities, dinner, and oh yes, work! As unreasonable as it is to complain about having a flu, I still do. lol. Being a mom and being sick at the same time, needs some adjustments!
So quickly, this ravioli recipe. Yes I needed it. Badly. I just needed to feel like I can throw some good tasting things together in a skillet and wait 15 minutes, then have a big plate of comfort. And I did. For some reason I love one pot ravioli recipes more than I love one pot pasta recipes. Not sure why. So first of all I was thinking of making this 10 Minute Greek Cheese Tortellini which is another one pot wonder burst with flavor. Likewise it’s all in a single pot, quick and easy. But it’s been quite cold here and I wasn’t in a very feta Greek flavor mood, so I swapped that for basil, tomatoes and white beans 🙂
White beans and pasta are a perfect pair for me, however feel free to swap that for some asparagus or broccoli or chickpeas! I think anything you add here will certainly make it taste amazing! It’s all about the base ravioli recipe. It’s briefly a sautee of garlic in butter (or olive oil of course!), the ravioli, fresh baby tomatoes and some fresh basil. Then add in some stock, cover the pan for 10 minutes, add in the beans, some basil pesto and cover that for another couple of minutes.
Another thing I love to add is some chilli flakes and a sprinkle of fresh Parmesan cheese. Seriously the easiest way to make a delicious ravioli recipe. I will say for the record that a touch of cream wouldn’t hurt your ravioli at all. It would make taste even better and add a touch of extra comfort–something like this One Pan Creamy Mushroom Tortellini for example. Another serious mood lifter! Either way, make a one pan ravioli recipe and enjoy!! 🙂 I’ll be back next week with a touch more fresh recipes, if I get over my cough and whining.lol.
