When Dublin Coddle went on the menu planner, Hubby gave me a look. He thinks I can’t make plain “American” food. While I can, why? How will you know if you like something if you never give it a try? Besides, some day I’d like to visit Ireland. In the meantime, a trip to the Emerald Isle at the dinner table is always nice.
Do you have picky eaters in your house? I think that’s a gimme – we all live with finicky people. Heck, we might even be that gotta have it a certain way or won’t touch that person. While my guys are fairly open minded when it comes to food, Kiddo has a tendency to shy away from asparagus and Hubby thinks Artichokes are a vegetable from hell. If I’m working with artichokes, I either have to leave them out completely on his serving or use giant chunks that he can pick out. I adore both artichokes and asparagus. Believe it or not, I found a dish containing asparagus that Kiddo ate without complaint.
This original recipe was inspired by a recipe I found at Taste of Home for Ravioli with Italian Sausage. Their recipe looked yummy. Cheese Ravioli, Italian Sausage, a meatless Pasta Sauce, chopped green bell peppers and Parmesan Cheese – what was not to like? I put it on my meal planner. Yeah, a quick weeknight supper. And it wouldn’t overheat our cozy kitchen on a warm summer night.
