Summer is here and sometimes that makes it difficult to want to slave in the kitchen. I use my microwave a great deal, but I use it even more in the summer. My family appreciates the nice meals and I appreciate not having to spend so much time in a hot kitchen. With this recipe you won’t even have to turn your stove or oven on. Give it a try.
I use a Tupperware Rock N Serve large deep container for this recipe. If you can find a similar container give it a try. Just remember that you only want to use microwave safe containers for the microwave. Containers that are not microwave saft can release unwanted chemicals into your food. Glass is usually a safe option if you don’t have the Rock N Serve container or something similar.
1 (16 oz) package of frozen Ravioli
1 qt jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 small can of mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
2 cups of mozzarella cheese divided into 1 cup portions
Place all of the ingredients except for 1 cup of the cheese in your microwave container. Cover the container but try to leave a vent of some sort. This is why the Rock N Serve is good because it has a vent on it and that makes it easy for the steam to release while cooking.
Cook on high for 8 – 10 minutes or until the Ravioli is hot and tender. Stir. Top with remaining cheese. Microwave on high without a cover for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
