Easy Cheesy Chicken Ravioli

Sometimes cool things happen and I get all excited and I want to tell you guys about them RIGHT NOW immediately! Because that’s the nature of this relationship here, right?

I write down whatever crazy things jump into my brain, and share whatever delicious foods I need right now this minute in all my various too many forms of social media, and it’s all this very strange instant gratification sort of thing.

It works for me because I am NOT patient by any stretch of the imagination. Nah uh, no way.

But this recipe was an exercise in patience. Not because it’s complicated or anything – I mean, I put the word ‘easy’ in the title.

I was just feeling extraordinarily hyperactive about sharing this recipe with you because I actually wrote this post for BHG. As in Better Homes and Gardens. As in helloooooo awesome magazine. As in – so cool, right?

I feel like I was channeling Mindy Kaling for that whole last flurry of sentences. She’s the best.

Anyway. I have been waiting all this time to share which seemed like for-eh-vur, but was really only maybe 6 weeks tops. And look at this ravioli!

So worth the wait.

Easy Cheesy Chicken Ravioli is made with wonton wrappers for a simple fresh [quick!] pasta. There’s a cream cheesy filling made with ground chicken and vegetables, and it’s all swimming in chunky summer tomato sauce with basil and grated Parmesan cheese. I channeled the BHG recipe dinner gurus for this one and you will love it!

A rich tomato sauce that boasts tender onions and a whole stick of butter. San Marzano Tomato Sauce was inspired by a recipe scribble in the pages of a chic lit book. After reading I just had to bring it to life!

Ingredients

  • 2 cans of San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and cut in half

Instructions

  1. Pour both cans of tomatoes and the stick of butter in a large pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the butter melts. Add the onion halves (don't pull them apart, just throw them in) and bring to a boil.
  2. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for an hour and a half. Serve over your favorite pasta with fresh grated parmesan cheese.
