Baked Ravioli Salad

Last time I told you I handed my master's thesis in. I made it sound all simple and joyful.

Real talk; things got ugly. The paper got stuck in the printer, I had to cut off the front page with a knife and I cried at the copy-shop. On the upside of all this: the nice lady at the counter gave me a pity-discount.
{Is that a real upside? I'm not sure...}

On days like this; the only thing that keeps me going is a pasta-heavy meal, shared with the people I love the most. So that's exactly what I did.

This is a recipe that you'll see me bringing along on the next pick-nick/barbecue/potluck for sure. It's so easy, great to make ahead and a creative turn on the casual everyday (mayonnaise loaded) pasta salad. It's also a great excuse for eating pasta everyday of the week: "but I'm eating a salad?!"

Spinach, mushroom and ricotta cannelloni

So... It finally happened. I submitted my Master's thesis!
It feels surreal, amazing and totally normal at the same time.

So now you know... the reason why this blog was on stand-by modus for the last couple of weeks was mostly because the amount of proof-reading, referencing and rewriting that was happening on this side of the screen. 

Not much fancy cuisine happened. Microwave and pizza happened. 

Lucky enough I could also count on both Marjan and mr. Boyfriend who prevented me from starving. 
Both of them did an awesome job at keeping a real foodie satisfied and happy.

Marjan made this super-tasty cannelloni with spinach, mushrooms and ricotta. It's an absolute classic for dinner parties at her place and always seems to blow away her guests. I also love the simplicity of the recipe; it's fairly straightforward and healthy.
