Ravioli with Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo Sauce

Throughout my life I've always thought as recipes being things that only counted when you were making them from scratch or 'homemade'. If I was in a hurry or just felt like using store bought products for the ingredients and throwing something together, I never would have thought to write it down or call it a recipe.

So while reading the news, I saw a link that caught my eye and before I knew it I was clicking through to Southern Living and looking at a mouth watering photo of a delicious ravioli pasta meal. When I clicked to see the 'recipe' to make it I saw it used almost all store bought products and it was thrown together in about 15 minutes.

Pasta, a jar of sauce, a little bit of this and that from your refrigerator and/or garden to add to it and you have a simple and fast meal for any week night.
