Quick Ravioli Ragu

Quick Ravioli Ragu

Did you see My Trader Joe’s Faves Post today?

I shared all of my favorite finds from that store and included these items…

…to make a quick and easy weeknight supper!

All you need is some ravioli (I bought two different kinds and mixed them), some ground beef, two cans of tomato sauce, some tomato paste, some 21 Seasoning Salute and then I added a splash of stock and topped it with Parmesan cheese.

The easiest weeknight ragu whipped up in minutes!

This recipe serves 4 to 6.  If you don’t shop at Trader Joe’s, just substitute an Italian seasoning blend for their spice.

Shopping List
1 pound of ground beef
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1½ tablespoons 21 Seasoning Salute
2 (15 oz) cans of tomato sauce
1 (6 oz) can of tomato paste
½ cup beef or chicken stock
2 (8 oz) packages refrigerated ravioli
grated Parmesan cheese to garnish

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown up your ground beef in a drizzle of EVOO.  Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water up to a boil for your ravioli.

Once the beef is browned and crumbly, add in your seasoning along with your tomato sauce, tomato paste and stock.  Bring everything up to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer while you drop your ravioli in the boiling water and cook to al dente (about 4 to 5 minutes).  Remove cooked ravioli from pot, drain water and then toss it with your meat sauce.

Stir everything together (be careful not to break your ravioli) and then sprinkle Parmesan cheese down over the top.

Serve and enjoy!

Easy, delicious and a family-favorite…all from Trader Joe’s!

Happy Monday, friends! xo

    My two favorite TJ’s cheater dinners are chicken parmesan and chicken cordon Bleu. I use the frozen breaded tenders and 5 minutes prior to done, I add either the Italian cheese blend and marinara, or Mustard, black forest ham and Swiss cheese! Couldn’t be easier and always appreciated!

    Hi I have your spring vegetable risotto on my meal plan but I can’t find the recipe anywhere on your blog. All that comes up when I google it is the picture but not the recipe. I was just wondering where is should look for it. I remember making it years ago and wanted to make it again:):)
