Recipe - Oven Baked Ravioli
Makes two wraps
- 2 Light FlatOut Wraps (Original, Italian or Sundried Tomato Flavor)
- 6 oz. shaved steak
- 1 small onion, diced (we prefer a sweet onion)
- 1/4 green pepper, seeded and diced
- 8-10 fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 8-10 grape tomatoes, quartered
- 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese of choice, divided
- Seasoning for steak (we use Buck's Seasoning, but Montreal Steak Seasoning or Seasoning Salt would work as would a combination of salt, pepper, garlic and paprika)
- Fresh baby spinach, about 12-20 leaves per wrap depending on your taste
- Fat Free or Low-Fat Mayonnaise (optional)
Lightly coat a non-stick frying pan with cooking spray or olive oil and pre-heat on medium heat on the stove. Cut up the shaved steak into smaller bite sized pieces. Season steak as desired and add to hot pan along with the onion and green pepper. Cook and stir often until steak is almost done, but still pink (about 4-5 minutes). Add mushrooms and continue cooking and stirring until beef is fully cooked and mushrooms are tender, about 2 minutes. Do not overcook. Add tomatoes and stir. Reduce heat to low. Divide the meat mixture in the pan into two equal amounts. Add a 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese to each pile of the meat mixture, cover the pan, and let the cheese melt. This should only take about a minute or two at the very most.
While cheese is melting, add a little mayo to the wraps, if desired. Then top the wrap with fresh raw spinach. I usually load mine up as they wilt a little once you put the hot meat mixture on top.
Fill each wrap with the meat mixture, roll-up and eat immediately.
Since we mainly use a fat free or low fat cheese for this, we stick with mozzarella or cheddar since they are the easiest to find in a lower fat version, but if calories and fat are not an issue for you, you could splurge a little and go with a provolone or swiss cheese as well.
Light FlatOut wraps taste amazing and full of fiber, which is why we use them so much at our house. If you can't find them in your area, you could use any other brand of flatbread or torillas of your choice. Just check the labels for the calorie and fat content as some brands can be quite high. This wrap is only about 5-6 points on Weight Watchers, depending on the type and amount of cheese that you use or the brand of wrap. Pair it with my Herbed Baked Potato Chips and you have a wonderful hearty lunch or a light dinner that is super quick and super easy to make and full of fiber, which helps you feel fuller longer. Extra hungry, add a bowl of soup or a nice garden salad to the meal.
- Use shaved pork or diced chicken or turkey instead of beef.
- Use other types of leaf lettuce instead of baby spinach for the greens.
- Use a honey mustard, horseradish sauce or low-fat italian dressing instead of mayo, or just leave the mayo off, that is what Gary does.
