Posts Tagged ‘Marinara Sauce’

I am so loving fall so far, lots of good eats and easy meals. One of my favorite meals lately has been Spaghetti Squash. One squash goes a long way. I made several meals from this one squash. Check it out.

Here’s How I Baked the Squash: 

  • Cut it in half lengthwise (I found this to be difficult. Husband to the Rescue)
  • Scrape out the seeds and pulp as you would with any squash or pumpkin
  • Bake rind side up about 30 to 40 minutes at 375 F
  • Separate strands by running a fork through in the “from stem to stern” direction.

One of the meals I made was spaghetti squash with marinara sauce, kale chips and a side of garlic toast.

The next day I made gnocchi, kale chips, and piled on the left over spaghetti squash and the marinara sauce.

Happy Fall = Happy Eating.

So I have a new recipe that I think will Sell You On Kale, if you haven’t already bought into it.

This recipe was so easy to throw together and fun. I loved making the little ravioli’s.


I made this two-way, as a wonton ravioli and as a mini bite.



Dipped in Marinara Sauce, it’s so hot right now.

So here’s the detail on this little recipe.

Kale and Tofu Wonton 2 Ways:

1 Bunch of Kale Torn from the Stem

1 Block of Tofu

1 Clove Garlic

1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan

48 Wonton Wrapper

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Cooking Spray

Marinara Sauce for Dipping


In a large pot of salted water boil the kale until tender, about 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon transfer the kale to a colander. When cool squeeze out excess water and finely chop. In a medium bowl, mash together the kale, the tofu block, the Parmesan cheese and the garlic.  Season with salt and pepper.

Assemble ravioli, by arranging wonton wrappers on a sprayed cookie sheet. Fill each wrapper with about 1 tsp of  mix.

Wet fingers and run along two sides of the wrapper. Fold over and seal. Spray completed ravioli with cooking spray and Bake on 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

(or) Take a mini muffin tin, spray with cooking spray and then line the tin with a wonton wrapper and then fill with about 1 tsp of mix. Lightly spray cooking spray on filled wontons and bake on 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with a side of marinara sauce.

Have I sold you on Kale yet? I’m telling you, you have to try it, it is so good for you. Kale Rules.

Question of the day: Are you sold on Kale?
