June 29th Bento

My first bento since I got back from my week away working!  It was so therapeutic!!
Bento Contents:
-Baked Ravioli (garnished with Parm & Grape Tomatoes)
-1/2 an orange, cut in wedges
-Steamed Broccoli
-Bing Cherries
-1 Dried Apricot (we really ration those things)
-A Hello Kitty Candy (under the apricot)

When we were out in Columbus, OH, one night we went out to a FABULOUS Italian resturant called Bucca di Peppo.  If you've never been to one, and live near one go now, tonight!  Anyway, we had amazing baked ravioli, and that inspired me to try my own when I got home!

Recipe for my Baked Ravioli!
-18oz. Bag Ravioli
-8oz. Bag Shredded Mozzarella
-3 Good Sized Roma Tomatoes Chopped
-4oz. Can of Mushrooms (drained)
-6oz. Can of Tomato Paste
-1/2 of a large onion chopped
-2-3 cloves of galic
-Approx. 1/4 fresh oregano finely chopped
-Palmful of dried parsley
-Seasoned Salt & Pepper to taste
-1-2 T. of olive oil
-Parmesan Cheese (preferably pre-shredded)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F
Follow instructions for preparing ravioli and set aside. 
Heat a large skillet and add olive oil.  When heated, add onion and garlic and reduce heat.
When onions start to become transparent, add mushrooms, chopped tomatoes, oregano, parsley, salt & pepper. 
Once heated through, mash the tomatoes (with potato masher or fork), then add tomato paste.  *You may need to add a little bit of water to keep sauce from burning*
Spray your baking dish with cooking spray (I used a 9x9 glass pan).
Layer ravioli, sauce, and mozzarella/parm (in the 9x9 it made two layers)
Bake, uncovered, until the cheese browns, and enjoy!
