15 minute meals: Ravioli with Sausage

HAPPY SPRING!! Yay! I am so excited that Spring is here! All the produce is super fresh, mellons are coming into season, tons of fruit is crisp and juicy. I just love spring! And since the wather is so beautiful, who wants to be cooped in a kitchen all day, right? So I came up with a recipe that is SOOO delicious, AND SOOO quick! Just 15 minutes from start to finish! You just cant beat that.

Ravioli with Sausage
Grocery List:
2 bell peppers
1 small onion
1 pkg cooked Italian chicken sausage (turkey is great too!)
2 pkg refrigerated cheese ravioli (or one large frozen bag)
2 tsp oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup chicken broth
10 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

How to make it:
1. Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a 12-in. deep-sided skillet. Meanwhile, halve peppers and onion crosswise, then cut into thin wedges. Cut sausages into 1/2-in.-thick slices.

2. Add ravioli to boiling water; cook as package directs. Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté peppers and onions 4 minutes. Add sausage; cook 2 minutes. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds.

3. Stir chicken broth into sausage mixture; remove skillet from heat. Drain ravioli; add to sausage and peppers. Sprinkle with basil.
