One Pot Pasta

This is such an easy meal with minimum clean up.  My husband said this was his favorite recipe this week.  Now that’s a compliment!  The recipe was in Southern Living – not sure which issue.


1 pound lean ground beef

1 small onion, diced

1 (8 ounce) package of sliced fresh mushrooms (I used a small can of mushrooms)

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 jars of pasta sauce (I used 1 1/2 jars 26 ounce each)

1 cup of water

1 tablespoon dried Italian Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/4 teaspoon of pepper

1 (20 ounce) package of refrigerated 4 cheese ravioli

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


Cook the ground beef in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain add the oil, onion and mushrooms and heat until tender about 8 minutes.

001Add the garlic and saute 1 minute more.  Stir in the sauce, water and spices.  Bring sauce to a boil.

002Once the sauce boils, add the ravioli.  Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the ravioli is done. 003

Stir in the cheese and serve immediately.  I served this with a small green salad and garlic bread.
