Family Size Ravioli… For Two

Just one pack of ravioli with two servings unfortunately does not fly in this household of two.

When Ryan and I enjoyed ravioli for dinner the past two weeks we’ve purchased two packages so my manly man could get his fill of the good stuff.

Yesterday at the grocery store we stumbled upon a family size pasta pouch with one pound of pasta.

Spinach Ricotta Pasta

I don’t know about you, but I just love knowing how much weight I will gain by eating my dinner. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since we’ve loved all of the other Monterey Pasta Company ravioli varieties, Ryan and I had high hopes for the family size spinach ricotta pasta poofs.

Boilin' Ravioli

I used my “fill up on veggies, not pasta” stragegy to the fullest tonight by incorporating lots of spinach, portobello mushrooms, onion and broccoli into my pasta bowl.

Veggie Topped Pasta

Veggies in my pasta = good. I think it makes me appreciate bites with ravioli even more.

Ryan and I enjoyed our ravioli in his and hers bowls… blue for the boy and pink for me.

Of course we had to add pasta sauce to our mix before diggin’ in.

Tasty fun!

Holiday Happenings

As I was driving home from work today I saw a Christmas tree in the window ofย a nearby business. The lights were on and dazzlin’ and it got me super excited for the holiday season.

Ryan already gave me the okay to decorate for Christmas this weekend since we’ll be gone for Thanksgiving and I want to come back to a festive Christmasy apartment! Hooray for the holidays!!!

Also, my girlfriends and I selected our Secret Santas today. Holiday cheer is in the air.
