Hellloooo lover 😍 We are OBSESSED with this marinara sauce with ground beef you guys and I’m so excited to be sharing the recipe with you bc I think you’re gonna be obsessed, too!

It’s SO versatile, easy to make, and healthy, that it has quickly become a staple for our weeknight dinners around our house.

Not only a staple but something we seriously look forward to digging our forks into anytime it’s “what’s for dinner”.

Lately I’ve been working to focus on sharing easy dinner / meal recipes for you here on Nyssa’s Kitchen that you will love and make again and again. Because honestly what’s better than healthy and crazy delicious food that is also EASY TO MAKE?! And I think this one falls into the trifecta of those three categories 💯

It is packed with comforting and homey flavors that can sometimes take waaaay too long to achieve in a home-cooked meal. But this flavorful sauce is ready in about 30 minutes flat, which gives you just enough time to prep what you’re serving it with, toss together a simple green salad, and pop open a bottle of wine 😉

Basically this super easy marinara sauce with ground beef IS weeknight dinner goals (that also makes seriously crave-able lunch leftovers for the next day <– just sayin’ 😉).

what should you eat this super easy marinara sauce with ground beef with?

 

There’s so many options!

It’s delicious paired with the obvious choice of GF pasta or ravioli, but is equally delicious served with:

  • Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi
  • With spiralized veggie noodles 
  • Over sautéed hearty greens 
  • On top of a roasted sweet potato
  • In a bowl with some fried eggs and a little arugula salad

Well, helllloooo! And happy 2019!

Wow. Always weird to say the number of the new year. It’s kind of cliche but it always sneaks up on me! I’m thinking we should embrace it with this yummy & easy dinner recipe because:

your 2019 needs this easy paleo teriyaki salmon.

 

It’s my favorite meal that I’ve made these past couple of months, and I foresee it coming back again and again in our weekly meal plan for three reasons:

  1. This salmon recipe is super easy to make – most of the cook time is hands off.
  2. It’s also crazy healthy and free from all the inflammatory ingredients that usually gunk up a standard teriyaki sauce.
  3. SO YUMMY. Like so much flavor. With just the right sticky texture and a sweet to salty ratio that will keep you coming back for bite after bite. (The first time I made this recipe, my husband and I didn’t even bother eating off of plates. Literally devoured a whole batch straight off of the baking sheet. Savage I know, but don’t judge until you try this salmon for yourself! 😜)

I figured why not get the year started with a dinner that says: 2019, we are HERE – with some crazy delicious food in tow 💯

Food that is the equivalent of a power pose meal. Strong, bold, and good for your self confidence 😉

It’s here! It’s HERE! The start of epic holiday spreads and all the comfort food dinners while we’re tucked safely inside our homes cozy and WARM. 

I love this season so much for many reasons, but let’s be honest, mostly because of the food 😝

Once November hits it’s game over for me and comfort food. It’s like this gravitational pull that starts between my kitchen and all things warm and delicious and filling. 

And Thanksgiving always brings that truth to life in the most real way. The mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, etc etc etc, just steal the comfort food spotlight!

And since it’s been dropping into the 30’s this week in Seattle, we might as well embrace those vibes by relishing in the warmth of our kitchens and eating all of the coziest foods.
