Baked Ravioli for Lunch

I woke up extra early this morning for some unknown reason and instead of squandering my time playing my mindless games on my phone and going on Instagram like I usually do when this happens, I actually found some unexpected motivation to make PRODUCTIVE use of the time. I promise, it won't happen again. :)

I've really gotten in a rut of packing the same ol' lunches, day-in, day-out, so I pulled out my inspirational lunch-packing cookbook: The Best Homemade Kids' Lunches on the Planet by Laura Fuentes of Momables, started flipping through the pages and stopped at this one for Baked Ravioli. It looked simple enough and I already had frozen ravioli on-hand as it's in my same ol' same ol' rotation, but with a little extra effort, it was revamped into something new and interesting, for them AND for me!

I of course had to taste test it and man, was it delicious! I used some panko bread in addition to some homemade breadcrumbs I already had on-hand. Good stuff. Both girls were rather interested in what I was doing and said they were looking forward to lunch. Hope it holds up well in their containers and don't get too soggy... I'll try to remember to report back later. :)
