Best Toasted Garlic-Butter Ravioli with Spinach Recipe (Delish.com)

Ingredients:

kosher salt
16-18 oz. cheese ravioli
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
freshly ground black pepper
5 oz. baby spinach
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese (we chose Pecorino Romano)

Directions:

Bring 12″ sauté pan of water to a boil and generally season with salt.  Prepare a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper.  Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente.  Remove ravioli using a slotted spoon and place in a single layer on the sheet pan, then discard water. 

Place the pan over medium heat.  Add oil, butter, and garlic; stir with a rubber spatula.  Add half the ravioli and stir gently until well coated; immediately add the balance of ravioli and repeat.  Flip the ravioli gently as needed to prevent them from sticking.  Cook ravioli until golden brown, about 5 minutes. 

Gently toss in the spinach, then garnish with parsley and parmesan.  Serve immediately!

Elevate the look by placing the jars on a gorgeous tray.

♥♥♥

If you have a candle obsession like we do, then we’re guessing you’ve got plenty of empty jars laying around the house.  Maybe you’ve been saving the jars because they are so pretty and were expensive? With a few simple steps, it’s easy to reuse those jars and create a fun storage solution for the kitchen, bathroom, and home office! 

To remove the leftover wax, start by placing the candle jar in hot water.  Fill the kitchen sink with enough water that at least half of the jar is submerged but not spilling into the jar.  Once the wax is melted, remove with kitchen utensil (ex: knife), then clean. You may also place the jar in the freezer for a few hours.  Again, using a kitchen knife, pop out the remaining wax and then clean the jar.  These are both great ways to loosen up any residue!

To glam up our jars, we added cabinet knobs that we picked up from T.J. Maxx Homegoods.  For under ten dollars we personalized them by adding bling to the lids!  All you need is craft glue and a glue gun to attach the knobs, which you can find at any craft store. Now for the fun part…Organizing!  The ideas are endless of the items that you can use to fill the jars.  Simply choose your favorite things/supplies and you’ve got a colorful and organized display of containers!

 

Watch how we turn our empty candle jars into useful home decor with a few simple steps HERE!

The Winter Solstice Mini Lip Strobe Collection, by Huda Beauty, is ideal for fans of bold and shimmery looks. These iridescent beauties are simply gorgeous! Lauren has worn them on their own and over her favorite lipstick and she was impressed with the performance. They are very flattering!

Don’t let the appearance of the packaging fool you, these cool and luminescent glosses are very pigmented.  You will find that they also pair very well with the Huda Beauty Highlighter Palette (Winter Solstice Palette).

There are four stunning icy colors such as Charmed, Bewitched, Starcrossed, and Hypnotic. This collection is perfect for the ultimate winter lip.  They are easy to apply, the strobes feel comfortable,  and don’t get sticky at all. A single swipe of the gloss is enough to turn any base lip color into incandescent hues and shades.

Wear it alone or on top of your go-to lipstick to see that infinite array of frosty shades. Keep that frosty, festive makeup look all winter long with the help of these semi-sheer glosses.  Get them before these limited-edition metallic glosses are gone.
