Variety of Food, Day 15: Ravioli Pomodoro

Tonight's my first night in a span of nights cooking for myself. BORING. Cooking for two is hard enough (I think I'm only capable of cooking for 4 or more), so cooking for one is nearly unbearable. Tonight I made an easy sauce, and put it with some prepared chicken and garlic ravioli. Wanna see how easy that sauce is?

Ravioli Pomodoro
New recipe from Giuliano Hazan's The Classic Pasta Cookbook
In a saucepan, put a large can (24 ounces) of chopped tomatoes, 6 tablespoons of butter, an onion cut in halves, and a bit of salt. Simmer over low heat until the tomatoes break down and separate from the butter (20-40 minutes). Cook the pasta, and toss the sauce and 4 tablespoons grated parmesan with the pasta.

Total Kitchen Time: 10 minutes

That's it. I might even put this on the list for easy lunches to make in the future. I hope the leftovers freeze okay, because I can't bear to have any more leftovers in the fridge at this point.

That sounds good! I didn't even realize you could buy prepared ravioli like that. Guess I should open my eyes at the grocery store...

Have you thought of creative sandwiches? Cooking for one and all, perhaps a new sandwich recipe??

Good luck cooking for one!

I'm with you on the cooking for one. Most nights I'd rather eat a bag of chips than cook for myself, but since I dont see you quiting this challenge, you might try fish or chicken that can be easily portioned *before* cooking so you dont have as leftovers.

And just think, your half way there!

steph, my only issues with sandwiches is that I don't like them. I think I may have eaten too many of them growing up.

rosa, I was thinking along those lines, but you'll just have to wait and see if it works
