My family absolutely loved this. I used frozen spinach and cheese ravioli and added fresh basil from our garden. Everything else we kept the same and it was DELICIOUS. Highly recommend and will definitely make again! Read More

This is a very easy yet delicious recipe. It comes together quickly and my husband and I both very much liked it. I did add some roasted garlic (I had some frozen) and that added a bit more flavor. Try it you'll like it! Read More
