Leftovers from previous nights dinner of Ravioli & Meat Sauce… turned into Ravioli in a mushroom spinach cream sauce and pasta fagioli, a copycat recipe from the Olive Garden.
Ravioli I added a cream base, sauteed mushrooms, celery and spinach. I added salt, pepper and sweet basil.
Pasta Fagioli I sauteed celery, onion and carrots, added spaghetti sauce, thinned it out with 3 cups of water, added 2 tbs of white vinegar, a home canned jar of navy beans and red kidney beans, and 3 cups of cooked macaroni pasta.
Many people have requested this….. so I will try to remember to add these weekly, just for inspiration and an idea of how I create my weekly meal plans. My goal is to always use up what I have on hand, as well as incorporating any leftovers. I will also make 3 loaves of fresh bread for the week…. 2 plain for sandwiches and 1 cinnamon raisin for breakfast.
