Dinners on weeknights can be challenging, I know. Especially for the 8-5 er’s. Now that I have eight people living in my house, it takes a lot more food and I have to be creative with it due to children. Mike, my husband will eat anything and NEVER complains so he is easy, but having kids in the house again is another whole ball game. And since they are my grandchildren I try and make things they like. I hate the idea of them having to sit at the table until they eat their peas so, I don’t make peas.
This week I came up with this: Grilled Ckicken Ravioli with Alfredo Sauce, Garlic Parmesan Bread and Salad. Sounds hard and timely, right? Well, let me share my trick.
I bought these at Costco (they come in double packs) We used both for 8 people:
And then made the Alfredo Sauce, homemade (borrowed from Ree Drummond):
1 stick butter
1 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan
In a saucepan or skillet, warm the butter and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Add the Parmesan and stir until melted. Pour over pasta and enjoy.
I double the recipe for the amount of food I made.
Soooooooo easy and so yummy! Then just slice bread, butter, sprinkle with garlic salt and Parmesane cheese. Serve with salad.
This may have taken me 20 minutes. I hope this helps you get dinner on the table.
