|My "thrown together" meal: made on the fly|
with convenience in mind, and turned out
DELICIOUS! Bon appétit!
Remember making marinara sauce with me in one of my original blog posts? No? I'll pause while you check it out. It's amazing, if I do say so myself! Remember when I bought the spinach ravioli at Sam's? I highly suggest you run out and buy some if you live near one, too! We originally planned to make spinach ravioli with marinara sauce for dinner one night, but ended up eating at my parent's that evening instead, so we postponed this particular meal. We had dropped chicken thighs into a plastic bag and drenched them with Italian dressing (easiest, best, and fairly low fat marinade!), allowing them to marinate about 48 hours before in preparation for grilling some marinated chicken thighs.
Now what's a girl to do? Because both those sounded amazing to me! Well, we just combined them into one fabulous dinner! We boiled the ravioli up, and we thawed out some of the frozen marinara sauce in a small pot on top of the stove. Meanwhile, J went outside and dropped the marinated chicken onto the grill. We put one thigh in a bowl, accompanied with 4 ravioli (which were topped with the marinara sauce). Dinner, completely ready, in less than a half hour!
I mean, doesn't this look amazing?!
