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.
Greek-Style Beef and Cheese Ravioli
Total recipe time: 30 minutes; makes 4 servings
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
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!
