Let's face it, a lot of times we are in a hurry to eat, hence fast food and the boom we've seen in this industry. Take out has become ever more popular, especially as we were trying to get our fix of our favorite restaurants during COVID. We want food, and we want food now!
Our family is on the go a lot, like many of you I'm sure, we have club soccer 4 times per week with a total of 5 practices, we also have chorus after school and games and tournaments on the weekends. In turn, when I go shopping I am looking for a variety of things, including fresh fruits and vegetables which can be eaten raw or cooked into meals, other fresh ingredients whether it be meats, fish, or other sources of protein, and then I am looking for quick meals. Something I can make relatively fast, that is so simple my 11-year-old daughter could make it without any trouble.
I bring to you my 5-minute Ravioli! No, I am not making the pasta from scratch, that would take a bit longer than 5 minutes. I am simply using a fresh, unfrozen store bought ravioli and a few simple ingredients you probably have laying around the house.
5-minute Truffle Ravioli
This is about as simple as it gets! When you're looking for something fast, easy, and filling, this will check all of the boxes.
I use store bought ravioli. Otherwise, this recipe would be much longer and more time consuming. With that being said, I used the Kirkland Brand Organic Spinach Ravioli from the refrigerated section at Costco. You can feel free to use this with just about any fresh or frozen ravioli you purchase, just know the cooking time might change, especially if you are using a frozen ravioli.
This is one of my favorites for quick food, not only because of how easy it is, but my daughter and wife would much prefer this made without the truffle oil. For theirs, I easily substitute a plain extra virgin olive oil and mine gets the royal treatment of truffles. All the while, there is really no added time from cooking them separately as I can cook all the ravioli in the same pot and do two separate bowls when prepping! They always said think smarter not harder.
Enjoy this simple and tasty meal!
Fresh Ravioli (I used Kirkland Brand Organic Spinach Ravioli)
Truffletopia White Truffle Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Gruyere Cheese, finely grated (you can substitute other cheeses like parmesan and more)
Italian Seasoning (herbs)
Fresh Ground Pepper
Parsley as a garnish
Cook ravioli per instructions on package, mine was 3 minutes
Add to a bowl that's large enough, and toss with Truffletopia White Truffle Oil, cheese, and seasonings. (for a more pronounced truffle flavor, use more oil and less herbs) I use about 3 squirts per piece of ravioli.
Plate the ravioli, give it a few extra squirts of Truffletopia White Truffle Oil, finely grate a little extra cheese, and add a pinch of parsley over the top. Enjoy!
