Another Back-to-School bento idea for today’s post. How about ravioli and sausage? Yes!!!
And packed in one of my most favorite Elph boxes from Japanistic.
Today’s bento is filled with mushroom ravioli, vegetarian sausage, asparagus, carrots, bit’s of smoked mozzarella and a cherry tomato.
If you decide to pack a similar bento just remember to keep things light and not add too much sauce. And you can add almost any type of vegetable if asparagus in not a favorite.
For more ideas visit my Back-to-School page for tips and suggestions.
Also, I’ll be announcing a contest in a few days where you will have a chance to win a cute bento box from our friends at Japanistic!

More stainless steel you asked? No problem. Requesting chicken? Sure.
How about tomatoes? Got those too.
Rice? Nah, this time it’s purple potatoes.

An odd but tasty combination for today’s bento lunch. I started in one direction…traditional Japanese then veered off towards Italy! Read the rest of this entry →

We were craving.
Yay! Fast, versatile and oh so yummy.
Today’s featured bento (and post) is a quick one with chicken sausages tossed in marinara sauce with cappellini and topped with shiso leaf.
Even simpler is the top tier filled with kabocha, broccoli tops and stems. All roasted of course.
This bento was pulled together in no time at all…and with the holiday crush on “full throttle”… I ’m going to crave pasta again soon.
