Speedy Pasta In A Pan

So here it is, the first recipe taken from The Family Dinner (and adapted slightly).
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 400g tinned tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons mixed herbs
1 250g pack of cheese ravioli
half cup of grated Parmesan
2 cups tomato sauce, home-made or shop bought
8 slices fresh mozzarella, or 3 cups shredded mozzarella

Makes 4 generous portions.

Method:
Heat a large saucepan and drizzle in the olive oil.  Over medium heat, saute the onion and garlic until golden.  Add the tinned tomatoes and mixed herbs.  Stir and simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove half the tomato mixture.  Top the tomatoes in the pan with a layer of uncooked ravioli, then a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese, a cup of the tomato sauce and the remaining tomato mixture.
Add the remaining ravioli into the pan, topping with the tomato sauce and the mozzarella.  Cover the pan with a lid or tin foil and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
Serve straight out of the pan.

And DS?  He had seconds.

Ruth, this sounds like such a wonderful book. Jamie Oliver's 30 minute meals is a good family friendly one too - though, I am yet to make one course of his in under 30 mins!

Great to see you over on the SAG blog - it should be a lot of fun and I really appreciate, so do the other girls, that you have the button up on your blog :-)
