Ravioli with Roasted Frozen Vegetables

Ravioli with Roasted Frozen Vegetables is wonderful with soy beans on the side.

Ravioli with Roasted Frozen Vegetables is a quick meal and can be made with any type of ravioli. My favorite is mushroom ravioli but there are a lot of varieties out there. I prefer the ravioli in the refrigerator section versus frozen. 

Have you ever roasted frozen vegetables? I’m not trying to trick you they are not as good as roasted fresh vegetables but I like them better than boiled or microwaved.  Sometimes grocery money is tight and frozen vegetables are my go to. Frozen vegetables are picked and frozen at their peek freshness and are packed with vitamins and nutrients.
