3 Bento #77 - Spinach Ravioli Pinwheel

Tuesday, May 11, 2010


Another bento plate (you will probably be seeing more of these when school lets out.  I know, I know, it's not "bento" but you know, naming conventions and all....)

E specially requested this spinach ravioli for lunch today.  This is a versatile family favorite of ours, since it can be prepared in a variety of ways - boiled (as I did today), my so-called quick "dumpling method" which gets them a little crispy on bottom (little bit of oil in a fry pan, add ravioli and 1/2 cup water, cover and cook on high for 6-7 minutes) and you can even bread and pan fry them as appetizers.  We like the Pasta Prima brand we get at Costco.  I toss it with a fruity extra-virgin olive oil and the included cheese and spice packet, which has lots of garlic and Italian herbs.  I also like it with bruschetta.
