When it comes to dinner, I have an evil twin. The "good" me believes in cooking whole foods from scratch, every damn night. Then we sit around the table and eat like civilized people with cloth napkins and conversation and everything.
But a few nights a week my evil twin comes home from work with something different in mind. She's tired. She's hungry. She's late. No time for "real" cooking -- I've got to whip up something fast. But I hate craptastic "processed" food because it tastes like genetically-modified iguana tears and will give me cancer/diabetes/gas/a bad disposition.
Except for my arsenal of super-duper, surprisingly-nutritious, not-craptastic secret weapons! Here are some evil-twin ready-made meals that even the "good" me approves of.
You can get it fresh or frozen, and in Italy it's considered more of an appetizer, but at my place ravioli is dinner. I'll drizzle with olive oil or melted butter, grate some Parmesan, and maybe, if I have time, snip some herbs over it. I especially like ravioli made with spinach or pumpkin.
