Lemons+Ravioli: A match made in Trader Joe’s heaven

5 Nov

It was another tasting bar moment. One paper-cup-sized bite and I knew what was for dinner.

The TJ’s staffer added some prosciutto and dressing to her sample. I tried something different. (My recipe’s below.)

Ricotta and lemon filled ravioli = tasty wonder

Lemony, cheesy, ravioli-y


My recipe for delicious ravioli from Trader Joe's

This is how my mixture looks in a square bowl.

JA’s TJ’s Lemon Ravioli Recipe:

Bag of Girasole Ricotta & Lemon Zest Ravioli
Bundle of fresh asparagus
3-4 Tbl fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
Drizzle of olive oil
Sprinkle of salt
Juice from half a lemon
To make it meaty, add half of TJ’s flat of “Just Chicken”

Combine. Serve. Enjoy!

Trader Giotto’s: How to make frozen vegetable lasagne good

3 Aug

With lasagne, it’s all about the cheese and the sauce. Additional fillings are a bonus, but if the cheese is too bulky or thin and the sauce is too spicy or bland, you’re sunk. In Goldie Lock’s terms, TJ’s Garden Vegetable Lasagne is just right.

Trader Joe’s Garden Vegetable Lasagne

This is another in my line up of hot-meal/cool-kitchen food. In 100-degree Midwestern heat, microwaving has reached mantra levels this summer. It’s a little heavy to make a staple right now, but I’ll definitely be considering this lasagne one of my cold weather go-to dinners. Bonus points for all the organic ingredients, too.

Gracie, Trader Giotto’s!
