Ravioli are always a hit with kids and parents alike, especially because dinner's on the table in a flash. The healthy whole wheat in our ravioli will go unnoticed in this colorful dish featuring fresh, flavor-packed ingredients. If heirloom tomatoes are unavailable, ask which variety is most flavorful and substitute! Serve with a green salad and you've got a meal.
1 package premade whole wheat cheese ravioli
3 small ripe heirloom tomatoes
1/2 bunch spinach (about 5 ounces)
1/2 cup lightly packed basil leaves
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons pine nuts
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add ravioli and cook, gently stirring once or twice, until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Reserve 1/3 cup of the pasta water and then drain ravioli well and transfer to a large bowl. Add tomatoes, spinach, basil, vinegar and reserved pasta water and toss gently to wilt spinach. Transfer to plates, top with pine nuts and serve.
