Ravioli Filling with Sausage, Mushrooms, Spinach and More!

Standard

1 pound hot Italian sausage.

Cut up one medium yellow (or whatever kind of onion is your favorite) onion and put in skillet. Start cooking on medium heat.

Cut up one large yellow bell pepper...you can use red or orange also, I just chose yellow because it was at the top of my veggie drawer.

Slice up one pound of mushrooms and add to skillet. Remember to stir now and then so that everything cooks and nothing burns. At this point you will add one teaspoon sea salt and one teaspoon garlic powder for extra flavor. Once your sausage is fully cooked remove pan from heat and let cool.

In food processor put one cup ricotta cheese and one teaspoon minced garlic.

Then add one large handful of fresh organic baby spinach.

Food process.

Add 1/2 of cooled meat mixture. We will be making spaghetti sauce with our other half of meat mixture...you can too 🙂

Add 1/2 cup of parmesan romano cheese.

Add 2 tablespoons of golden milled flaxseed and food process.

Finished filling...add to your homemade ravioli for a wonderful supper.

Ravioli Filling with Sausage, Mushrooms, Spinach and More!

1 pound hot Italian sausage

1 medium yellow onion

1 large yellow bell pepper

1 pound sliced mushrooms

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp garlic

fresh ground black pepper to taste

——————————————–

1 cup Ricotta cheese

1 tsp minced garlic

1 handful fresh organic baby spinach

1/2 cup parmesan-romano cheese

2 tbsp milled golden flaxseed

Cook sausage,  onion, pepper, and mushrooms in skillet over medium heat.  Add sea salt, garlic powder and fresh ground black pepper at the same time you add in the mushrooms.  Once fully cooked remove from heat and let cool.

In food processor combine ricotta, minced garlic and organic baby spinach.

Add half of meat mixture to cheese and spinach mixture.  Add in parmesan-romano cheese and milled golden flax.  Food process well.

Now you have the completed filling for some wonderful homemade ravioli.  You could also use filling in shells or Manicotti.

The question is:  What do I do with the other half of the meat mixture?  I plan on making some homemade spaghetti sauce with mine.  If you don’t want to go all out and make sauce from scratch you can use a jar pasta sauce and just add your meat mixture to it for added flavor and texture.
