10 Curry Recipes to Spice Up Your Life

Curry. I absolutely have a love and not so much... relationship when it comes to curry. I spent much of my young adult life in a university town. We had two universities and a major college.

Spinach and Cheese Ravioli, with Sausage and Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

I am going to be brutally honest. I have never been a fan of pouring a salad dressing in a main dish unless it is a chicken salad or something. And I wish that I could say that the outcome was incredible. Over the moon. Over the top. Over the... well, you get the idea. But don't stop reading! There is a silver lining.
