Ingredients: 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil 1 medium onion, chopped 3 clove(s) garlic, minced Coarse salt Ground pepper 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried thyme or oregano 1 can(s) (28-ounce) whole tomatoes 1 can(s) (28-ounce) crushed tomatoes 2 pound(s) store-bought ravioli 1 1/2 cup(s) shredded mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup(s) grated Parmesan cheese Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and season with salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add thyme and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, breaking up tomatoes with spoon, until sauce is thickened and reduced to about 5 1/2 cups, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, cook ravioli in a large pot of boiling salted water just until they float to the top (pasta will continue to cook in oven). Drain pasta; return to pot. Toss sauce with pasta. Pour pasta into a large gratin dish or 9-by-13-inch baking dish, and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.

Chicken Gyros 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken (breasts or thighs) 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 lemon, juiced 2 tsp red wine vinegar 2 tbsp olive oil 2 tsp dried oregano kosher salt and pepper 1 batch tzatziki sauce sliced tomatoes sliced onions sliced cucumbers lettuce 4 (pocketless) pitas Whisk together the garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, oil, oregano, and 1 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and add to Ziploc bag. Add in chicken pieces and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour, turning halfway through. Preheat the grill (or pan, or broiler). Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides, and then grill over indirect heat until cooked through, about 8 minutes per side, depending what size/type chicken you are using. Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before slicing into strips. Meanwhile, warm your pita bread. I have a gas stove, so I just spray them with a little bit of oil and stick them right on the burner for a few seconds per side. Top the pita with the chicken, tzatziki, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and lettuce.
