Inside-Out Ravioli

Here's a recipe for an old family favorite - Inside-Out Ravioli. A few people have eaten this dish recently and are waiting for me to post the recipe. So here it is:

Inside-Out Ravioli

1 pound ground beef (from grass-fed and finished cattle is best), or Italian sausage (turkey or pork - from pasture-raised animals is best)
1/2 cup onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
10 ounces of frozen, chopped organic or pesticide free spinach
32-ounce jar organic spaghetti sauce
1 (6-ounce) can organic tomato pasta
1/2 teaspoon salt (Redmond Real salt is a good choice)
Dash of pepper
7 ounces penne, ziti or shell macaroni, cooked and drained (brown rice pasta is a good choice)
9 ounces shredded cheese - mozzarella or jack (from cows not given rBSt)
3 well-beaten eggs (from pasture-raised chickens)
1/4 cup extra-virgin, cold-pressed olive oil
1 cup soft breadcrumbs
1 cup shredded cheese - mozzarella or jack (from cows not given rBSt)
