Not Your Momma's Ravioli Lasagna - AMEX 6 Ingredient Challenge and Giveaway

Ravioli Lasagna, Farmers Wife Original

Hey y'all! If you're a Facebook fan, you know I've been working on some really special posts, that I've been DYING to share with you... Well here it is! I was chosen, along with 19 other fabulous bloggers, to be a part of the AMEX Dinner@6 Challenge by FoodBuzz's Tastemaker Program along with American Express to create a dinner with only 6 ingredients!!! I have to admit when I first got the email that I was chosen for this challenge, my emotions went haywire! I very quickly went from stunned, to ecstatic, to downright worried lol! This really was a challenge for me. I've made a few recipes in the past that were 6 ingredients or less, but never as a requirement (though I was relieved when I read the rules that water, oil, salt and pepper didn't count as one of the six so I could use them to my heart's desire! hehe!). So after spending a few days marinating ideas in my food obsessed brain, finally this one came to me at 2 am... Yeah... I told you before I dream in food. ;-) Ravioli Lasagna... Or as I like to call it "Not Your Momma's Ravioli Lasagna" this is unlike any traditional lasagna you've ever had, trust me on this!

For this challenge I had my own criteria on top of the 6 ingredients or less, it had to be easy, full of flavor and kid friendly. Because that's what this Momma needs at the end of the day. Though I have to be honest... I am surprised at how good this turned out. I know, I should wow you and say I knew it would be awesome and blah blah blah... But the truth is I was scared to make this. I've never really had luck with a lasagna before, and this is so NOT traditional lasagna. But then I served it up to my *picky* Little Sous Chef, and after he took his first bite, he closed his eyes... After a somewhat awkward pause... lol! The following conversation ensued:

Me: "So........ How is it?"
LSC: *Stuffs his mouth and says:* "It's so nummy... You're a nice cooker Mommy!!"
Me: "Really?!? Are you sure?"
LSC: "Yup! I'm not allowed to lie remember Mommy?"

Lol!! He cracks me up sometimes, but when a 3 year old pays you such a high compliment it must be taken into consideration. And to my surprise this lasagna really was full of flavor even with such few ingredients, and it held up so beautifully... This is truly the best and easiest lasagna I've ever made and the best part is it came together in under an hour, including bake time! Serve this alongside a salad and some delicious garlic bread, and this dinner would impress even the pickiest eater, or at least it did in my house as my son even asked for seconds... You read that right, SECONDS! Yum....

16 oz. Ravioli, any filling you like I had Cheese on hand
1 lbs. Italian Turkey Sausage (or 3 links *optional, leave out to make this vegetarian*)
3 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
3 Roasted Red Peppers
1 15 oz. Can Italian Diced Tomatoes
3 cloves of Garlic
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

In a large pot boil 6 cups of water, and cook the ravioli about 7 minutes, drain, rinse with cold water and set aside. In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil until hot. Remove the sausage from the casing then add to the pan, and cook until browned. Meanwhile in a blender puree the peppers, tomatoes, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and remaining oil and puree until desired consistency (I like some small chunks). Pour the sauce into the pan with the meat and heat through, once hot add about 1/4 cup of cheese to the sauce and let melt. In a greased 8x8 pan place a small amount of sauce in the bottom, then add a layer of the ravioli, top with more sauce, and a layer of cheese. Repeat layers using all of the ravioli and sauce, ending with cheese on top. Place in a 350F degrees pre-heated oven, bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted. Once done, let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm.

*Don't leave!!! I have something special for you!!!*

    During the summer I really enjoy making sauteed swiss chard and kale and topping it with fresh tomatoes. I use 6 ingredients: fresh chard, kale, olive oil, garlic, heirloom tomatoes and parmesan cheese.

    First I heat up olive oil and cook the green and garlic like I would with spinach. Then, while its still warm I top it with parmesan cheese and slices of tomato. It's always fresh and simple and delicious! I think its best served with a slice of fresh crusty bread.

  67. My favorite six ingredient recipe:
    • • 1 1/2 cups quinoa (see headnote; no need to rinse)
    • • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli
    • • 1 to 2 medium lemons
    • • 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
    • • 5 tablespoons olive oil (may use the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes)
    • • 3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the quinoa and cook uncovered for 6 minutes.
    Meanwhile, cut the broccoli stalks into 3/4-inch pieces and cut the broccoli tops into small florets. Add to the pot; reduce the heat to medium-high and return to a boil. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, until the quinoa has no opaque dot of uncooked starch in the center.
    While the broccoli is cooking, squeeze enough juice from the lemon(s) to yield 1/4 cup. Coarsely chop the sun-dried tomatoes and place in a large bowl.
