Open Ravioli with Pepperonata from Goodtoknow

I went through a phase of not wanting to cook or bake for weeks.

And I felt bad about it. I mean, Mr. Sweets was getting frozen pizza and fresh pasta all the time instead of a home cooked meal!

But let me tell you. When those onions started sizzling in that olive oil, I was in my element.

I sound lame, I know. But if you love cooking as much as I do, you know what I mean!

This is a dish I found on the goodtoknow Recipes website, the same magazine who is publishing my Peanut Butter Cups today! Go check it out!!

On a scale of 1-10, I give this dish a 5. The pepperonata didn't have as much flavor as I though it would, but I loved mixing in the goats cheese and pesto for the extra flavor!

Recipe from here! For 2 people

  • 1 Onion, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Red Peppers cut into strips
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 400g Tin of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 Teaspoons Tomato Puree
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 3 Sheets of Lasagne, cut in half
  • 60g Goats' Cheese
  • Green Pesto
♥ Fry the onion in olive oil on a low heat until soft and translucent

♥ Add the red peppers and garlic and cook for 1 minute

♥ Cover the pan and let it simmer for 5 minutes

♥ Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, salt, pepper, and a small glass of water to the red pepper mixture

♥ Bring up to a boil and let it simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the mixture gets too dry, add a little more water    

♥ While the pepperonata is cooking, cook the lasagne in a pot of salted water and drain

♥ Spoon a little of the pepperonata into a dish, place a sheet of lasagne on top, add more pepperonata, and continue doing that for 3 sheets of lasagne per plate

♥ Place the goats' cheese on top and drizzle some pesto sauce on it!

Voila! All done!!

Smooches! xoxo
