Pesto Tomato Ravioli

This is one of those embarrassingly easy meals.  But it’s also good, so I’ll share it with you.  All my kids love pesto sauce and pasta, so we ate this up.  You only need 3 ingredients and long enough to boil the ravioli and you’ll have dinner on the table.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • frozen cheese ravioli
  • 1 jar pesto sauce
  • 1 or 2 cans diced tomatoes, drained (fire roasted would be really good)

Cook the ravioli according to the package directions.  Toss with the pesto sauce and tomatoes.  I thought more tomatoes would have been good, but my kids prefer fewer.

This is completely off-topic, but is anyone else bothered by the new packaging that Walmart has given all their store brand products?  Everything looks the same.  It makes shopping a challenge.  I wonder what Walmart was thinking?

  1. Sounds yummy!!
    Did you use both bags of Ravioli?

    • Wendy, I did use both bags of ravioli. If your family is smaller, you probably only need 1 bag. Just use half the jar of pesto and 1 can of tomatoes. I’ve got 6 in my family, including a teenage boy ;-)

  2. I don’t know WM was thinking when they changed their packaging. I think they wanted to simplify…and went overboard! I have a problem with it that’s for sure!

    This recipe looks so delicious! I would love to try it!

    I absolutely can’t stand WM’s new packaging. It is especially difficult to find their cereals now. It took me FOREVER to find their raisin bran when they first changed it.

    I wonder if they are trying to cut printing costs, and by having the majority of the label in white it might be cheaper. I think it just makes their product look cheap (not in price, but quality), and tons harder to find!

  4. I HATE the new Walmart packaging! It is very hard to find anything, especially cereals and canned goods. So annoying. It does make their stuff look very cheap and generic.

    This recipe looks awesome! I love that jarred pesto sauce. I used it to make crostini for a holiday party. Just spread a little on toasted slices of french bread, then top with a strip of sundried tomato. YUM.

  5. Quick, tasty dish! Look’s great!
    I too am bothered by the “too generic” looking logo. I’m afraid I’m going to open green beans and get corn.

  6. The new packaging at WM reminds me of government food that they give out at food pantries.

    Obviously it was done to save money on their part on printing costs. Either that or so a person could easily identify their brand among all the different packaging on the shelves.

    Any which way it doesn’t bother me too much.

  7. I hate the logo and the name of the “great value” too! I liked the other name better, which escapes me at the moment…..Sam’s brand???
    Thanks for showing me some cheaper ravioli! Bertolli’s is pretty expensive! I made “toasted” ravioli last night from a Rachel Ray recipe. It was yum-o! Dip ravioli in egg, then dredge in Parmesan, parsley, and bread crumbs mixture. Then fry in 3 tbsp of EVOO in a skillet. Use spaghetti sauce as dipping sauce, great for appetizers!

  8. Sounds like a great combo to me! I don’t like that new packaging either. I think they went a little too far on the “less is more” side.

  9. I don’t like it either! It reminds me of of the black and white generic labels on groceries when I was a kid.

    I fixed this recipe for the first time tonight and it was a hit! My 9 year old is going through an annoyingly picky stage when it comes to food. Generally tomatoes and pasta not smothered in a red meat sauce is a no-no. However, she loved this dish. She was excited that there were enough leftovers for her lunch tomorrow! Thanks for helping me be a superstar in the kitchen!
