The Dark Days Challenge is on! Running until March 31, 2012 over 100 participants will be doing our best to cook and blog about one meal per week featuring SOLE (sustainable, organic, local ethical) ingredients. Recaps will be hosted by the blog collective Not Dabbling in Normal where you can follow along with all of the other participants.
No pictures of this weeks Dark Days Meal as I was feeling a bit lazy and the meal isn't anything to special. I was very much still in recovery mode when I went back to work Tuesday and was looking for something quick, easy, and delicious for dinner. Pasta with sauce and some sort of vegetable or (maybe) meat is a pretty common meal here at Grown Away. Some days we don't want to cook anything fancy, just something warm and filling in our bellies. Tuesday was just that kind of night so I pulled a container of Valicenti Organico beef ravioli out of the freezer and warmed up a jar of our homemade sauce. That is it, nothing fancy but so delicious. I was expecting the ravioli to be loaded with ground beef, which I thought might be a little too much for Gail, but she was willing to give it a try. Turns out there was no need for concern as the consistency of the filling was creamy, and a nice mix of ricotta, beef, and seasoning without any of the ingredients overpowering the others.
Quick, tasty, and simple food to start the year!
look for regularly scheduled posting to start up again next week.
