Lazy Ravioli (356 calories per serve)

I am in the midst of moving house and there are boxes in my living room, encroaching to my kitchen. The messy state of the house somehow makes me feel really lazy … like I should be a slob to match my environment. It became a battle between my laziness and my hunger … my hunger won. So I whipped up a very quick recipe using ravioli (which I had been craving for a few days) and leek which was on sale at the supermarket. Oh and maybe some mushrooms, bacon, and cream to, you know, make it not so leeky.

Serves 4

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 10 mins


1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 leek, chopped
6 rashers of bacon
12 button mushrooms
300ml light thickened cream
600g fresh beef or chicken ravioli

Boil the ravioli in water according to the packet instructions. Usually around 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat up the oil in a large saucepan. Sautee the garlic and the leek until they soften.

Add the bacon and let it brown a little and become fragrant. .

Add the mushrooms and cook for a few minutes.

Pour in the thickened cream and let it simmer for a minute.

Mix in the ravioli. You can serve as is but if it lacks greenery, you may want to garnish with some parsley and top with some parmesan. But hey, I was lazy, and had neither.
