I used this bag of kale salad mix to make prep super easy, but you can also make your own mix with fresh kale, shaved brussels sprouts, spinach, whatever you like

Fresh ravioli cooks in 2-3 minutes and will keep for days in the refrigerator

When you’re ready to serve the salad, top the ravioli with fresh Parmesan and broil for a few minutes

    Love your salad combo and the peanut lime dressing sounds delicious Jenna! I’ve bought butternut squash ravioli at my grocery store in the fall. Love the idea of a little additional parm and broiling it for crouton!
