What I Made for Dinner: August 24, 2010

Frozen ravioli with brown butter-lemon sauce.

This dinner is a good one when you have only fifteen minutes to make it between getting home from work and everyone rushing out of the house to go to a Cub Scout meeting. 

(By the way, I read a magazine article a while back where the writer or interviewee or someone advised that the first thing to do when you come home from work is put a pot of water on to boil.  It turns out, that is excellent advice.)

While the ravioli boils, melt a stick of butter over medium-high heat and let it cook until the foam subsides and it starts to smell nutty.  Take it off the heat and add the juice of one lemon, salt, and pepper.  I think it would be good to add some fresh thyme alone with the lemon juice, too, but I didn't try it this time.  Drain the ravioli and toss it with the butter sauce.
