Print This Post Print This Post

Sometimes you really just don’t have the time to make dinner, actually probably more than sometimes. Now there are a lot of recipes out there that you can cook quickly, true, but is it also something unique, budget friendly and guaranteed to please? Maybe, maybe not, either way I’ve found a recipe I think will be all of those things for you.

This Ravioli Taco Bake combines two things I never thought of putting together, tacos and ravioli. It turns out they’re a fabulous combo! It’s easy to prep, easy to cook and even easier to eat. You could totally pair this with a little salad or chips and salsa. The kids will love it and I’m pretty positive the husbands/boyfriends, and even the mailman will too. šŸ˜‰

A special thanks to Gooseberry Patch for providing us with this recipe from From 101 Autumn Recipes cookbook. Try your hand at making this yummy dinner tonight:
