Last week was one of those crazy busy weeks for me. I was scheduled from morning until bedtime every single day. Exhausting! I had hardly any time for food which is painful for me. My time in the kitchen is my happy time. It relieves my stress and is my creative outlet. I guess I still did a lot of cooking this week, but it wasn’t fun cooking and nothing was new which means my creative side is bursting! Watch out for some fun recipes when I get my hands back in the kitchen!
So on one of those crazy nights where I literally had 15 minutes to get food on the table I whipped out some pre-made raviolis, cooked them (which takes, what, 3 minutes?) and made a brown butter garlic sauce. The longest part was waiting for the water to boil to cook my raviolis so the whole thing came together in less than 10 minutes. Awesome sauce! It gave me 5 minutes left to shoot a few quick photos and wa-la! I was eating and back out the door. I know I’m a bit of a “from scratch” snob, but there are a few things I can feel okay buying premade. Raviolis are one of them. And dang, the kind I used were SO good! You can always make your own and freeze them, too. All I know is, that when I’ve only got 15 minutes, I can still bust out something way better than the drive-thru.
4 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
1. Heat a small saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter. Stir or whisk it and cook for 2-3 minutes after it all melts, until it starts to brown. When it starts to get those brown flecks, remove it from the heat and stir in the crushed garlic. Stir or whisk for another 30 seconds. Done.
