My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Pesto Ravioli with Chicken Sausage

I love the colors on this dish! It's extremely easy to prepare and tastes great reheated the following day.
{ Prep Time: 5 mins / Cooking Time: 15 mins / Difficulty: Super Easy! / Yields: 4 servings }

12 oz refrigerated ravioli
1 cup frozen peas
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
6 oz (2 links) fully cooked Italian style chicken sausage links, thinly sliced
1/3 cup pesto
1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1. In a medium pot, cook the ravioli according to the package directions, adding the peas about halfway through the cooking time. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the cooking water; drain the ravioli and peas, then return to the pot.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until browned - about 6-8 mins.
3. Add the pesto, Parmesan and the cooked sausage to the ravioli and peas and toss to combine.
