Microwavable Ravioli with Tomatoes

This Summer has certainly been a hot one, and if you are still getting a bit of sun where you are you might want to head on over to Busy Moms Recipes where they have put up a few easy recipes that wont heat your house up too much!

This crazy heat is driving everyone out of the kitchen, so this week we’ll feature some alternatives to using a hot stove or oven. Here’s a quick and easy recipe that everyone will enjoy:

2-3 ripe tomatoes, chopped (can also substitute 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes)
2 tbsp. snipped fresh basil or 1 tbsp. dried basil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. lemon pepper
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 bag microwavable cheese ravioli
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste

Combine chopped tomatoes, basil, garlic, lemon pepper, and olive oil in a large bowl. Let tomato mixture sit at room temperature for approximately thirty minutes.

Heat ravioli in the microwave according to the package instructions. I like the Rosetto All-Natural Steam ‘n Eat™ cheese stuffed ravioli that can be found in the freezer section of your local supermarket. And right now they also have a $1.50 coupon off of their products!

Finally, carefully add the hot pasta to the tomato mixture and gently toss to coat. Spoon on plates, sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese, and serve.
