Freezer staples—frozen bell peppers with onions and individually quick-frozen spinach—give a simple tomato-based pasta sauce complexity and a big boost of nutrients.


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary, divided
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen stir-fry vegetables (bell peppers and onions)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 cup individually quick-frozen spinach
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 24 ounces fresh or frozen cheese ravioli
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Put a large pot of lightly salted water on to boil for cooking ravioli.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and 1 teaspoon rosemary; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add stir-fry vegetables and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer. Cook until vegetables are tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook until tender, about 2 minutes more. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon rosemary and season with pepper.

Meanwhile, cook ravioli in the boiling water until they float, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with the sauce. Serve with Parmesan.


In place of the frozen stir-fry mixture, use 1 onion and 2 bell peppers, sliced.
