Have you settled into your back to school routine? We have and I am *finally* getting use to homework time, dinner prep, and then gym time. However, there is always that one thing that seems to stick a fork in meal time plans during the week. Whether it be extra homework, work, or unexpected visitors we all have them “where did the time go moments”.
Since my husband and I sometimes eat after the gym when the kids go to bed, I often struggle with meals for them. Since they are so picky meals like hot chicken, and mashed potatoes are off the menu choices. I suppose they are typical kids and prefer kid-friendly foods like Chef Boyardee Ravioli.
While they would eat this quick meal idea straight from the can I feel “mom guilt” so I figured out a way to make an Upgraded Chef Boyardee Cheesy Ravioli Bake in a pinch!
To make this Upgraded Chef Boyardee Cheesy Ravioli Bake I literally just dumped two cans of Chef Boyardee Meat Ravioli into a small casserole dish, added 1/2 cup of cheese, and about 1/4 cup of fresh basil leaves (4 chopped and a few for garnishing).
Having fresh basil in my window box is such a lifesaver when it comes to dinnertime. It is pretty much one of the only herbs my little pickies enjoy!
The best part was the kids loved it and I was saved a ton of time in the kitchen.
