Ravioli with Pesto, Green Beans, and Bacon

Sometimes you find yourself in a carb-conscious crowd. But a tray of these Spinach and Cheese Ravioli’s tossed with fresh basil and cheese pesto, green beans, and bacon is such a delicious combination that all the rules of the carb-conscious crowd seem to totally go out the window!

Just one more. Just one more. Just one more. In mere minutes the whole platter is gone!

In fact, I think this dish seems to cause the carb-conscious crowd to lose some sense of consciousness since no one can stop eating them. I ended up preparing a tray of this dish more than a few times with the same results each time. 

You can easily pick up this particular ravioli at your local Costco in double pack packages covered in hard plastic. You can also use any type of ravioli you choose, though I highly recommend these round spinach and cheese variety. It’s the common-sense knowledge of cooking an excellent meal to use the best ingredients. And these ravioli are all that. 

Besides everything is better with bacon. Other best ingredients in this dish include a combined fresh basil and parsley pesto which lends a little more mellow flavor from the boldness of using only basil in the pesto preparation.

And then you have the green beans. Hmm. Maybe it’s the eye pop between the green beans and the halved multi-colored tomatoes that makes this dish appear ah… a little less ‘carby.’ Is that a word?

A colorful and tasty winner, perfect even for the carb conscious crowd in your life, Ravioli with Pesto, Green Beans, and Bacon! Manja!
