I’ve been meaning to tell you something. I’m kind of on a low-calorie, but more importantly, low-carb(ish) diet. I’ve been making just TONS of zoodles, and making Main Squeeze eat quite reasonable, healthy dinners. Don’t worry, he’s lost 5 pounds, and wasn’t even on this low carb train. Unsure of my exact scale progress, I’d call it infinitesimally slow to quite infinitesimally slow. Ughhhh.

Naturally welcoming any opportunity to stuff face with carbs for heaps of internet fame, I gleefully accepted Giovanni Rana’s offer to participate for the second year in their annual Ravioli Challenge – you know, the one where they send the blogger crew amazing, delicious ravioli, and for every time we (and our adoring fans – hi, Mom!) use the hashtag #RanaRavioliChallenge, they’ll donate a pound of pasta to our local food bank, in my case, the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

Due solely to the fact that I am on low-carb(ish) diet, I decided I couldn’t eat all four bags of ravioli they sent me by myself, so Main Squeeze and I hosted a ravioli dinner party. We dinner party quite well.

And, oh yeah, it was kind of a St. Patty’s Day party as well.

So, onto the ravioli. IT’S SO GOOD. It has REAL CARBS in it. And CHEESE, GLORIOUS CHEESE. And, dude, the PESTO SAUCE. Pesto sauce is what 97.6% of what my dreams are made of.

We tried the mushroom ravioli, spinach and cheese, and just cheese. We also made homemade Bolognese, which I’ll be revealing as a recipe sometime soon(ish) on this very blog.

It was a triumph. Additionally, we left the cheese ravioli alone for those who wanted to choose their own sauce adventure, and I have to add, it was just as delicious sans sauce, as with, which I believe is a true testament to how top notch those carbs are.

I’m not the only super famous blogger who participated in this challenge. Take a look at some of the other blogger babes (lots of cool ladies from the Chicago blogger crew, too, yay!) who rocked this ravioli challenge, and don’t forget to give ravioli the righteous attention it deserves on its name day, and get your hashtag on – #RanaRavioliChallenge.
