Great recipe

So I foudn this recipe and made it last night I was afraid my kids would not like it but it has somethign for everyone nad it is quicka nd easy.

Ravioli Skillet
1 14.5oz can italian style stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 14oz can vegetable broth
2 medium zucchini, halved lenghtwise and sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 9oz package refrigerated cheese ravioli( I used frozen kind and used half the bag. Works just as well)
1 15oz white kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons parsley

I did not use the last 2 itmes and it cut caloires down by 10 caloires

In a large saucepan combine undrained tomatoes and broth: bring to a boil. Stir in zucchini and ravioli. Return to boil and reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered for 6 to 7 minutes or until ravioli is tender and broth mixture is slightly thickened, stirring once or twice. Stir in beans and heat for 3 more minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley.

ugh ... zucchini ... ick!

Zucchini is good for you. Put a different veggie in.

Wow, you made your blog pretty!!! It's nice like that, but you should put your ticker at the top so I can see it.

You think it would be good with something like broccoli? Hey, something else you could do is make it without the veggie in it, and put corn on the cob nest to it?

No I like it at the bottom so I can't constantly worry about it. Can you not see it.

I think broccoli would be good or maybe squash or carrotts. My kids are not a fan of corn but yeah that would work.
