Candle Cafe in Your Home!
So I found a bag of Candle Cafe frozen ravioli in my freezer that I forgot I had. They are filled with Portobello mushrooms, and Kalamata olives. I got them awhile ago at Whole Foods, and they somehow got shoved in the back of my freezer. I didn't have any jarred tomato sauce, and no canned tomatoes to make my own sauce, so I decided to get crazy. While the pasta was boiling(only five minutes) I sauteed five or six garlic cloves in olive oil, added some crushed red pepper, salt and pepper, and about half a can of chickpeas. I sauteed this for a few minutes, turned off the heat, added the juice of half a lemon, and a ton of chopped parley and dill. I tossed it all with the ravioli, and added some nutritional yeast. Kind of like a chickpea scampi, minus the white wine!
If you see these in your Whole Foods, I can't stress enough- try them! You won't be disappointed.
Even though tomorrow is Friday, I will have some fun things to show for my late MidWeek Munchies post. I'm going to find a bulk bin source today, and I'm sure I'll get one or two treats along the way!
