Beef Ragu with Ravioli

Teresa

Beef Ragu with Ravioli is a fantastic recipe. This entree features a very quick homemade ragu sauce and packaged ravioli. It comes together in a snap making it delightful for week night dinners. If you’re a pasta lover like me, this is a great way to get dynamic Italian flavors with a zesty and delicious twist.

I made this tasty dish back in April when we were all home due to Corona Virus. I wanted a recipe that was sufficient for a family of four (not eight or ten). I had the recipe ready to eat in about 40 minutes. I love quick and easy recipes, and this one truly was. It’s mostly a dump and go recipe for the sauce. If you start your water boiling for the pasta when you beginning to cook the sauce, everything will be done at the same time.

We thought this quick and easy pasta dinner was delightful to the taste buds, yet not a budget crusher. You can use cooking wine or beef broth according to your personal preference. It’s hearty, filling and completely satisfying. I served it with Herb Roasted Squash and both recipes turned out wonderfully. Needless to say, we enjoyed a superb dinner that night.

Beef Ragu with Ravioli is a terrific beef pasta dish that your family will love. This entree is kid-friendly and one I even recommend for company, Sunday dinners or week nights when your schedule is hectic. You’ll be drooling from the first bite. 🙂

Fry ground beef, onion and garlic together until beef is no longer pink. Drain any grease. (I used 96% lean ground beef so I had NO grease to drain.)

    I’m definitely going to try yours, Teresa! I’ve always taken pride in my Ragu, which I’ve personally developed over the years,. Yours also sounds incredibly delicious, & much less complicated than mine. I’m sure it will be a huge hit with my family, and a recipe which I’ll use often. Thank you, & many Blessings to you & your lovely family. 🙂
