Baked Ravioli with Rosa Pasta Sauce

Ravioli with Rose Sauce 6 620

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you had an awesome winter break. I’ve been away for over four weeks and boy am I ready to get back to it. Do you know how hard it was not working in any capacity for over 4 weeks?? I know what you’re thinking and yes, at first, it was totally awesome and very much needed, and as my husband says, “very well-deserved” ( boy, he sure knows how to butter me up), but by the end of the third week I was just like “Whoa! I’m going a little stir crazy here and I need to get back to work.”

By then we were hit with a winter storm that left my tiny city paralyzed under 6 inches of snow! We don’t get much of that fluffy white stuff here in the Coastal South Carolina (think 2nd largest record snowfall in recorded history) – so it was a real shocker to see it blanketing my yard! It was beautiful but the icy road conditions made it treacherous. The record low temperatures combined with the ice and snow had us house-bound for 5 days!

Thankfully, it’s back to business as usual and I’m glad to be able to get back into the swing of things. Today’s featured recipe is Baked Ravioli in Rosa Pasta Sauce – and I just know you’re gonna love it. It’s quick. It’s simple. It’s cheesy. It’s delicious!

Come on over to my kitchen and we’ll get started!
