What you'll need (4 to 6 servings):
3 tbsp - butter
½ teaspoon onion powder
2 tsp - minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp - Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp - Black pepper
1 1/2 - tbsp lemon juice
2 cups - fresh baby spinach
3/4 - Freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cup - heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
3 (9-10 oz) packages of ravioli - I use the Classic Five Cheese Ravioli from Aldi (pictured below)
3/4 cup - sun-dried tomatoes in oil
Fresh Basil for Garnish (optional)
For Steak (optional):
1 lb - beef sirloin, cut into 2-inch strips
1/2 tsp - Seasoning salt
1/2 tsp - black pepper
1/2 tsp - Steak & Chop rub (optional)
1. Bring 4 quarts of water to boil. Salt the water liberally. Add the ravioli and cook for 1 minute less than package directions, drain and set aside.
2. Seasoning and grill your steak to your liking, I like mine medium-well (optional). Then set aside and cover with foil.
2. While the ravioli is boiling, let's get started on the sauce! Add butter and 2 tablespoons of the oil from the jar of sun-dried tomato to a large pan over medium heat. Once butter has melted, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add broth, heavy cream, sun-dried tomatoes, black pepper, onion powder, Italian seasoning and lemon juice to the skillet and allow for it to become smooth, about 2-3 minutes.
3. Add cooked ravioli to the prepared sauce and stir to combine. Add basil and spinach. Cover the pan and allow the spinach to wilt; about 5 minutes. Once spinach has wilted, stir to combine, then top with parmesan cheese.
