Vodka sauce ravioli: Sexy Vegetarian Thursday!

Can I get a WOOHOO?!

Sexy Vegetarian Thursday is back on track, and I am happy to share this really delicious, half homemade, quick and easy meat-free meal. I had a 10-hour workday today (5 total hours of driving for a 4 hour conference) and it didn't take much effort or energy to make.

Give this a whirl and let me know how you get on :)

Vodka Sauce Ravioli

Boil a package of cheese ravioli and steam some frozen broccoli. Easy peasy!

In a medium saucepan or large skillet, heat 1/3 cup of vodka to simmering. Allow to cook until the vodka reduced by half. Add 1/2 cup of light cream and 1 1/2 cups of tomato or marinara sauce. Stir gently but thoroughly. Bring to a simmer and stir occasionally for 5 minutes. Add 3 handfuls of fresh baby spinach (or any other leafy green you fancy), stir, and allow to simmer for 10 more minutes.

Spoon vodka sauce over ravioli and serve with a veggie of your choice, like broccoli.
