The last few weeks have been about going out, working late, and eating out of the pantry and our half-empty fridge. I was so behind on grocery shopping, I even asked the husband to step in. He did. And although his intentions are good, he lacks the vision for meal planning while shopping, and buys random vegetables without having something in mind. However, since I didn't really give him a list, I couldn't complain (much). So we ended up with a little bit of everything. And it was up to me to make use of his selections.
For this meal, we kept things super simple. We grilled squash and asparagus with salt, pepper and olive oil. On the side, I prepared some Trader Joe's refrigerated butternut ravioli. Doesn't get much easier. I boiled the ravioli first, then sauteed the little pillow triangles in butter and olive oil. They were topped with freshly grated Parmesan.
When we finished eating, we felt super healthy. No heavy sauces, and plenty servings of vegetables. And of course a glass of wine for good heart health.
