Seviroli Cheese Ravioli - Che bello!
Posted by on 04/28/2008
We'd planned on dinner out tonite, nothing fancy, dollar beers and a burger dinner at Fudruckers. The batphone rings - the wife's gotta stay late saving the world and I get an eyefull of 120.00 barrel crude on tele. That conspicuous concoction of inconvenience and woe compel me to "go to the bullpen" and see what I can prepare @ home for dinner - heck I did have a cooking class or two in college (to meet girls but that worked out as well as my souffle.)
So I'm diggin' through my freezer and spy a pizza - but a tombstone ain't gonna get it on a "I worked out today and need a stick 2 your ribs meal" and want something better than a 3 dollar pizza night. I see the same "face" staring up at me that's been doing the same for a month or so that the wife bought and stuck in there when she was bored and bought something neither one of us had ever had, or tried before-but bought because she was bored and wanted to go shopping at Costco or Sam's.

*cue violins and Dean Martin singing* "On an Evening in Roma" I grab this bag of frozen Seviroli frozen Cheese Ravioli and consider this for dinner - heck how hard can it be to boil some water and heat some bottled spaghetti sauce? The picture on the bag sure looked appetizing, if the product sucked, I could just eat the bag.
So I boil some water, kinda followed the directions, heated some bottled pasta sauce, added some ground beef and some herbs and spices - come on, admit it, who doesn't doctor bottled sauces? The wife comes home to a dinner that will go down as a great one in memory. The pasta simmered for about 10 minutes - longer than recommended but I never follow directions that much in the kitchen - look where just "going for it" has gotten Emeril? I simmered the ravioli's until they puffed into little pillows of heaven filled with molten cheese - good thing I worked out today because the saturated fat content is enough to send any cardiologist to the ICU.
I ladled on a splatter of my doctored up pasta sauce, poured a glass of merlot and had a surprisingly great meal at home and didn't have to tip some schmo at a restaurant where I have to wait for bad service, pay double the amount for dinner and triple or better the amount for a glass or 3 or wine that set the whole thing off as something worth writing about.
If you're a fan of Italian - I'm not really as like "Mexican" I think it's comprised of the same 4 or 5 ingredients mixed in different orders and shapes - plus that Italian girl I dated for awhile left me years ago and I never was successful "finding America" if you will, then consider giving this Seviroli Cheese Ravioli a try - it's not like a weekend in Rome, but taste and calories enough to make you wonder if you went there. UFP.

....In other words...Pirate made Seviroli Cheese Ravioli and liked it...LOL!

Thanks Pirate...but to answer your question, "who doesn't doctor bottled sauces".....ewwwwww...not this Italian girl, NO JAR SAUCE in my house...it's homemade or naked pasta! But, since you "added" your own touch, I guess I'll ok it, after all, your a guy!

Well, even if bottled it still turned out pretty good! I don't have time to plant tomatoes and peel 'em and stew 'em - STEW!?

Yeah, I worked out today too. I'm so ripped I'm busting out of my shirt right now. Thanks for the green light on this. Us studs shouldn't feel guilty to indulge every now and then after a day on the free weights.

Wooo Hoooo...Slim's bustin' out of his shirt!!!

That's right basher. Every inch is chiseled right now and those pillows of heaven ain't no ravioli.

Slim I'm fairly certain the only "free weights" you got goin' for you are the ones you're trying to tuck beneath your belt.

Buono, molto buono!

Well pirate, I'm not the one who can't have a plate of ravioli without doing 3 sit ups first or who recently wrote another review about Weight Watchers TV dinners, am I.

Guess some of us are into fitness and exercise and some of us aren't.

Good post. Not totally homemade, it's called "Semi-homemade!" See Sandra Lee on FoodTV

Seems you're jealous again, why doesn't that surprise me.

No, I just would like to hear about you impressing the Pirate household with something out of the FRIDGE and vegetable tray instead of the darn freezer. The way you describe what you have in the freezer it sounds like you are either SINGLE or some poor schmuck living in a studio apartment. C'mon Justin!!!!

Uh, it's pretty clear who's a homeowner between us. *smirk*
