This is one of those meals that can be made into a shortcut meal by purchasing a store-bought roasted chicken. I use them all the time if I'm not in the mood to cook and they really aren't too costly especially if you can get two meals out of one chicken and use the bones to make chicken soup.
The kids wanted their ravioli without sauce, just a little butter. My wife took some of the peas and added them to the ravioli and carrot fennel sauce making it a better dish. Kind of creating a meal on the fly.
In fact, it's my opinion finding short cut meals that you and your family enjoy are an essential part of planning out your week's meal schedule. In my case, I don't usually plan out the week but it's a really good idea if you can manage it; I just make sure I have enough short cut ingredients in the house at all times.
