…That thing where someone brings over something yummy (in this case, peppers), but you don’t eat all of it, and it’s not really a meal all by itself.
As far as I can tell, the mixture was originally sliced bell peppers and white onions that were sauteed in a lot of olive oil. I was looking for something that would absorb the oil, while providing a little balance to the dish. I had frozen ravioli- large or small to choose from. I went with the smaller ones, based on my desire for balance. This is not all that complicated, but here goes…
…Removed the container with the leftovers. Btw, olive oil coagulates like woah in the fridge. Some say it hurts the taste, some say it doesn’t… but so far, no one has said it can hurt you. I will tell you it looks very funky, but don’t let that deter you.
…Started up the pot of water to boil.
…Put the peppers & oil into a metal mixing bowl. (Metal conducts heat. Science!)
Once the water was boiling, I dropped in the ravioli. They took another 5 mins or so to cook.
…Strained the ravioli & then placed them on top of the peppers.
…Let them sit like that a minute while I rinsed off the pots & pans…
Which made the oil melt- more science! Then, I stirred them,
…and that was it! It didn’t require any seasoning (but feel free to jazz it up if you like, you know I skew bland!)
You can’t beat leftovers that turn into 4 more meals. Yum!
