Greek-Style Beef and Cheese Ravioli… A beefy comfort food!


As we dig out from a cold (20 below with wind chill) and snowy (much needed) storm, I am bringing you a delicious beef recipe that is perfect for cold days.

Let me introduce the Greek-style Beef and Cheese Ravioli from the Beefitswhatsfordinner.com recipe collection. I have made it a couple of times, and it was excellent both times!

Greek-Style Beef and Cheese Ravioli

Total recipe time: 30 minutes; makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

1-1/4 pounds ground beef (I usually just use 1-pound since that is how my hamburger is packaged)

1 package (9 oz.) refrigerated cheese ravioli (I use the ones found in the freezer section)

2 cans (14-1/2 oz. each) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano – undrained

2 cups lightly packed fresh baby spinach

1 cup pitted ripe olives (I use black olives)

1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions:

1. Cook ground beef in deep skillet, pour off drippings.

2. Meanwhile, cook ravioli according to package instructions. Set aside.

3. Once the ground beef is thoroughly cooked, stir in tomatoes; bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in ravioli; simmer 3 minutes. Stir in spinach and olives; cook until spinach is just wilted. Sprinkle with feta cheese before serving. Enjoy!

Cook’s note: I do add a little salt and pepper to the beef after cooking. We also like things to have a bit of spice, so I add a teaspoon or so of red pepper flakes to it!
