Low Carb Beef Ravioli

  • 8g of carbs
  • 40 mins
  • Serves 2-3

Ingredients

  • For the filling:
  • 400g beef mince
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp chives
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 160g-200g spinach
  • 2 courgettes

  • For the sauce:
  • 250g passata
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 1/2 tbsp Italian herbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • A few pinches of sweetener
  • 100-150g grated cheddar cheese for topping

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 190℃ / 375℉ / Gas mark 5.
  2. Preheat a frying pan and add the beef mince. Stir continuously until the mince has cooked and browned.
  3. Add the garlic and spinach to the pan and continue stirring. Cook until the spinach has wilted. Thoroughly mix the spinach in with the beef mince.
  4. Add the cream cheese, chives, salt, and pepper to the pan. Cook on a low heat for 10 minutes, occasionally stirring.
  5. Meanwhile, cut the ends off of the courgettes. Then, cut a thin slice off both courgettes lengthways. Using a grater, grate thin strips to use for the ravioli. You will need a total of 32 strips. I have provided a video to demonstrate how to cut the strips.
  6. To make the sauce, add the passata, tomato puree, garlic granules, Italian herbs, salt and pepper, and the sweetener to a pan. Cook over a low/medium heat for 10-15 minutes.
  7. To assemble the ravioli, you need to position 2 courgette strips vertically and overlap with 2 courgette strips horizontally, forming the shape of a cross. I have provided a video to demonstrate how to position and fill the strips.
  8. In the center of the cross, place a large spoonful of the beef filling. Wrap the courgette strips up to enclose the beef mixture.
  9. Place the ravioli parcels onto a baking dish.
  10. Pour the tomato sauce over the ravioli parcels and top with the grated cheese. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven and serve with your favourite vegetables.

Beef ravioli is an old time favourite of mine. I used to eat this as a quick and easy dinner, and I must confess, with a rather large helping of garlic bread. My diet has certainly changed since then, but my craving for beef ravioli has not. I was a little apprehensive about trying this dish with courgette as I’m not a huge lover of it. But, I must say, as the courgette strips are so thin and there is a delicious tomato sauce coating you really don’t notice the courgette. Especially with the melted cheese. I was suprised as to how similar in texture this dish was. I definately recommend trying it. At just 8g of carbs and 4g of net carbs, this shouldn’t have too much of an impact on blood glucose levels.

And dinner is served!
