ingredients

directions

  • Sprinkle salt into a 10 to 12 inch frying pan over medium-high heat. Crumble beef into pan and cook, stirring often, until meat begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, stir in onion, and continue to cook, stirring, until onion is soft but not brown, about 5 minutes. Spoon off and discard excess fat.
  • Add garlic, tomatoes (break them up with a spoon) and their liquid, broth, oregano, and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil then stir in pasta. Reduce heat, cover and simmer gently until pasta is tender to bite, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, squeeze as much liquid as possible from spinach. Stir spinach into pasta mixture just until heated through. Serve with cheese to add to taste.

    I add 1/4 cup olive oil to fry the 90% lean ground beef. Do not drain. This was from the original Greek recipe site.

    Turned out great ... I used ground turkey (that's what I had) ... I used 2 10oz cans of tomatoes w/green chilies ... I like it spicy so I seasoned the meat with Bold creole seasoning .. Followed directions as stated (including the seasoning) and it turned out wonderful... I used fresh spinach/kale/chard mix (I hate frozen spinach) and it was perfect ... Also used feta cheese instead of Parmesan (that's what I had on hand) ... Just sprinkled a little feta on top of the individual servings !! Great recipe .. Easy to follow ... LOVE IT !!!!
