I was up for the challenge! Who knows, maybe I'll even win the grand prize of $1,000 worth of must-have kitchen tools?
One can dream, right?

I decided to use the Grilled Chicken and Mozzarella Ravioli and combine it with Summer fresh vegetables and blue cheese. Note that the packaged ravioli came with Parmesan & Herb mix, but I left it out.
Grilled Chicken Ravioli with Vegetables & Blue Cheese
8 ounce package of PastaPrima Grilled Chicken and Mozzarella Ravioli
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 cups snow peas, ends trimmed, cut in half on diagonal
1 yellow pepper, sliced thinly on diagonal
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
6 basil leaves, chopped
1/4-1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
1. Cook ravioli according to the directions on the package.
2. Heat olive oil in a pan. Add garlic and saute for a few minutes.
3. Add snow peas and saute for 2 more minutes. Do the same with yellow pepper.
4. Add cherry tomatoes and drained ravioli. Let everything warm through for a few minutes.
5. Turn off the heat, add the blue cheese and basil. Let the blue cheese melt into hot vegetables and ravioli.
6. Serve immediately.
How incredibly simple is this dish? Of course you can use any pasta/ravioli you have on hand. Feel free to add zucchini, green onions and or mushrooms. If you think blue cheese is too strong, go with mozzarella.
What's your favorite way of cooking/eating pasta that is not your typical pasta + sauce?
PS see the little fork in the first photo? I found it in a 2nd hand store with Jenna for $2! And I also found a cute little spoon there for another $2. What a bargain ;)
