Instant dinner tonight: Trader Joe's ravioli. The package instructions require that you boil them, but I was curious if it would work to fry them instead. I tried this, using butter and a little garlic on low heat. The ravioli skins are soft, so I didn't think boiling was essential. I liked the result, though care is required to avoid scorching them. It's faster than waiting for water to boil. Lazy, too. Full disclosure: I have never made ravioli from scratch. And probably never will.
The TJ's sample that inspired me to buy these ravioli was served with Marinara Sauce as illustrated. I had tried the ravioli before, though the sauce was new to me. Both were fine. I suspect that several hours of work using garden-fresh local summer tomatoes would be better. But there are still a few weeks of winter before any plants could even be in the ground.
