Comfort Food is Cool!

Stacey Crew Wellness - Comfort Food

There was a time when cooking was really not my thing! (Anyone who’s known me for a long time, knows this.)

So, I try and find easy recipes that I LOVE in order to simplify, but still, enjoy delicious meals. Also, I love to NOT have to use a recipe (this speeds things up on busy days) and this one is easy to memorize, which means I’m more likely to make it!

So here it is. A recipe that originally came from Health Magazine way back in 2004.

It’s an easy meal for a cold winter night that takes about 8 minutes to prepare and 12 minutes cooking time.

Ravioli with Tomatoes, White Beans and Escarole (or fresh Spinach)

1 (9-ounce) package fresh four-cheese ravioli

1 (15- to 16-ounce) can Great Northern or navy beans, rinsed and drained

1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

6 cups chopped fresh escarole or spinach

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Asiago cheese

How to cook it:

1. Cook pasta according to package directions

2. Combine the beans, tomatoes, basil, oregano, and red pepper in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil; stir in escarole (or spinach). Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes or until escarole (or spinach) is wilted. Stir in pasta and 1/4 cup water; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with cheese.

Yield: 4 servings

Best part: Only 329 calories and 7 grams of fat per one cup serving. Not too shabby!
