Beefy Baked Ravioli
This recipe is a hit with my husband and everyone else I've given the recipe to. It's very easy and satisfies that Italian craving.

Mmm, good stuff. I use Italian sausage instead of beef, a whole 25 oz bag of ravioli, and a bag of my own frozen tomatoes. I add chopped onion and green pepper while frying the meat and a 28 oz jar of sauce. Oh, and I double the cheese, 2 cups on each layer. Great with garlic toast and a glass of red wine.Read More

It seems there are some cooking snobs here. Not everyone has the time to spend the entire afternoon cooking dinner from scratch. Just because a recipe is "semi-homemade" doesn't mean it isn't good. This recipe made a quick and tasty week night meal. Thanks for sharing.
Great throw-together meal. I used a whole bag of frozen ravioli, and added chopped mushrooms and garlic to my browning meat. I also added one and a half cans spaghetti sauce. Served with a salad, corn, and garlic bread, and you've got a wonderful meal!!
This was a wonderful dish. My kids and their company loved it! I'll definately make it again! And for those of you who want everything from scratch, you CAN make your own ravioli, spaghetti sauce and can your own tomatoes....but for us regular folks, this makes for a wonderful, homecooked meal! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
Oh. My. Gosh. This was soooo GOOD!!! For all you food snobs out there, us "working class" folks don't have time to make everything from scratch. Shame on you for looking down at us or snubbing a good recipe due to it being "semi-homade" (geezsh)! Because my hubby & I work long hours, we rarely have time to make elaborate meals during the week. When planning this week's meals, I stumbled upon LUVINMYHUBBY's recipe & IMMEDIATELY knew I HAD to give it a try. In order to spend less time in the kitchen tonight, I browned my beef / onion (I added a small diced onion when browning my beef) on Sunday. I then mixed in my sauce / tomatoes (Hunt's balsamic, EVOO & basil flavored) & threw in my (covered) Tupperware Mix-N-Stor pitcher. Tonight, all I had to do was assemble everything & pop in the oven. NOTE: I started to layer 1/2 of my raviolis in my 8 x 8 in. baking dish & by the 2nd (final) layer, I had used the entire bag! That, subbing meat filled ravioli for the cheese variety (hubby's request), adding an onion (as mentioned previously) & not using any Parm (personal preference) were my only changes. There are TWO important things to note here. First, you DO NOT need to boil your ravioli (that would negate the simplicity of the entire dish). If the recipe submitter thought you should, she would have instructed to do so. Second, as is, this takes more like 40 min. to heat thru. Served w/ a bagged salad mix & garlic bread, this was a FANTASTIC and EASY meal! Thanks for sharing! :-)
My guys loved this!! I browned the meat with 1 diced onion and 2 pressed garlic cloves. I omitted the canned Spaghetti sauce and instead I used 1 (29 oz) can of Tom puree, 2 (14.5 oz) cans of petite diced tomatoes and 1 can of tom paste. I seasoned it as I would a spaghetti sauce with basil, oregano and a little sugar. I used a whole bag of cheese raviolis. My husband said it was better than lasagna! High praise indeed! We have a 14 year old and a 4 year old. They loved it too. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe!
EXCELLENT!! I USED 1/2 A 25OZ. BAG OF BEEF RAV. AND 1/2 CHEESE- 2 LARGE CANS OF SPAG SAUCE- 8OZ OF FRESH MUSHROOM- BROWNED 1# BEEF WITH GARLIC,ONION POWDER, SALT AND PEPPER WITH MUSHROOMS- LAYERED AS TOLD IN RECIPE- ADDED LAST LAYER OF CHEESE 15 MINS BEFORE REMOVING FROM OVEN- DID NOT COOK RAV. CAME OUT AWESOME- USED A 13X9 PAN- HUSBAND AND SON LOVED IT!!!! VERY EASY!!
Yep. This saved the day today. Used two bags of the mini ravioli, no extra tomato, and some ricotta with a little chopped garlic between the layers. The kids ate it right up and my husband had a second helping :) The ability to use frozen ravioli puts this one over the top in my opinion. I printed this one out. Thanks!!
So yummy and easy for a mostly pre-packaged meal- fast to put together on those nights when I need to get food on the table.
This is a great quick meal idea. I had used a spicy tomato sauce along with seasoned diced tomatoes to kick it up a bit. I also used ground turkey with lowfat shredded cheese because we are watching calories. It still tasted great. Definately a repeat! Thanks!
This was super easy. I highly recommend getting the frozen ravioli from Aldi if you have one near you. They are very reasonable. Followed the directions almost to a T. Used a glass covered casserole dish instead of foil and used some of the cheese on top. I baked for 20 mins covered then uncovered and popped some frozen garlic bread on a cookie tray for the remaining 10 mins. Next time I would use only 1/2 lb meat because it was a little heavy on the meat for us. Will make this often. Love that you don't have to precook the ravioli first. Not gourmet but definitely satisfying
This was very tasty. My husband loved it. It is a great quick alternative to lasagna. I added fresh muchrooms and doubled the ravioli and sauce. Next time, I may try adding some fresh spinach.
I can't believe I waited so long to review this recipe. I've been making it at least once a month for a year. I make a few changes to adjust to our tastes - I use the entire package of ravioli, 2 jars of sauce, use the juice with the diced tomatoes and saute some onions and garlic with the hamburger/ground turkey/ground italian sausage (whatever I have on hand). I share this recipe with nearly everyone who asks if I have any good recipes to share - and they have all loved it. Awesome recipe and super easy to make!
This was easy. I used frozen cheese ravioli, frozen meatballs, jar of spaghetti sauce, frozen spinach, a tub of cottage cheese with a beaten egg in it, pkg mozerella and parmesan on top. Assembled in two layers and baked, at 350, covered, for forty five minutes. No need to defrost anything first. Quick way to feed a crowd. Thanks for a great dinner idea!
A wonderfully easy recipe when you feel like a lasagna type casserole but haven't the time to put it together. Used my own marinara sauce and added more cheese. And for those that would critisize this as not being a recipe but more like instructions on how to open up cans....."Do you really think that all restaurants make every thing they serve from scratch"?
So GOOD! After recently getting married to a Brooklyn Italian. I needed to step up my Italian cooking. This was it! I made it for his Italian Grandparents and they loved it! I substituted ground Italian sweet sausage for the beef and made a sauce from scratch. I also didn't precook the ravioli just threw it all together in the layers suggested with extra cheese. SO PERFECT! It looked like I spent the entire day in the kitchen - little do they know! anyways, Thanks again for such a great recipe.
Yum! So easy and really, really tasty. I used ground lean turkey instead of beef, and tripled the amount of sauce. I subbed two medium fresh tomatoes for the canned, and added a bag of steamed mix vegetables (broccoli, carrot, onion, and pepper blend) into the sauce. I also added another cup of mozzarella to top the casserole with. A huge hit in our house, with a side salad and garlic bread. I will make this again -- thanks!
So easy, and still real food, and yummy :) I used some spaghetti sauce out of the freezer rather than a jar, and subbed ground sweet Italian sausage (the price was half that of ground beef!). I did put the ravioli in frozen...eyeballed the cheese amounts so probably used less than what was called for. This was great, and everyone at the table agreed, so it's a keeper! Thanks for sharing this family pleasing recipe!
I've been married for 2 and a half weeks and just made this tonight for my husband and brother-in-law. They both loved it! Thanks for the quick, easy recipe! I cut it in half and made it in a 9x9 pan and used the "cheap" Wal-Mart frozen ravioli. It made plenty for the three of us! Yum!
I'm new to the kitchen and this was very easy! Incase there are any struggling new chefs out there, I'll explain how I made it! When browning the beef I used onion and garlic for flavor. (actually pressed my own cloves) which was quite an accomplishment! The recipe doesn't clarify whether to cook the ravioli or not...DO!!!! It's really easy and just follow the instructions on the bag. Once my meat was browned and drained and the ravioli was cooked and drained I layered as the recipe directs. I added a can of tomato paste to my sauce and used a seasoned basil spaghetti sauce(24 oz jar) instead of a plain one. I also added oregano while mixing the meat with the sauce. I used more of everything and when I make this again I'm going to double the meat...it was fine with the suggested amounts but we love meat! Oh, and make sure you cover it in the oven with foil and add the parmesan cheese after baking! Enjoy!
Made this recipe on Valentine's Day and it was a HIT! Hubby loved it! My aunt had pass by to drop off Vday goody bags and asked to try it..she ended up taking some home for my cousins and uncle to try! She called later on that night and told me that they all loved it too! Very easy and yummy!
My family liked this alot. I made breadsticks with it. They enjoyed having meat with their raviolis :) Thanks for the recipe!
This is such a simple throw together meal! I never thought to bake my frozen ravioli, and I don't think I will ever just boil them again! I used spicy italian sausage instead of ground beef, and also added some sauteed mushrooms. Will definetly be keeping this on stand by for those nights I don't feel like cooking much. Thanks!
This recipe is super easy. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think, as it's written, it needed some garlic and extra seasonings. So the second time I made it I sauteed some onion and garlic w/ the ground beef and added some Italian seasoning to the sauce. I bet using the diced tomatoes w/ garlic and basil would be good too. And it's excellent w/ Italian sausage instead of the ground beef.
easy and delicious-my husband loved it too!
This recipe turned out fantastic. My hubby likes a bit of spice so I used diced tomatoes w/jalapenos. It added a nice light spice to it. He can't wait until I make it again - he's already requested it.
To the person who rated this as "This is not a recipe, it's directions for opening cans" obviously you must have time on your hands to make food from scratch every day, breakfast to dinner. For those of us who have lives and live in the real world, it's nice to have an easy "semi-homemade" meal to turn to on a busy day, most of the time there are things in life that are more important to spend time on than making a meal from scratch every night.
This is a winner in our house! So quick and easy to make -- especially on a weeknight. I ended up using a 26 oz. jar of DelGrosso Pepperoni Spaghetti Sauce, and I only had a can of sliced stewed tomatoes, but it turned out terrific. Must be a hit with 3-year-olds, because mine said she "loved, loved, loved" it. Hubby and 15-month-old gave it thumbs up, too.
I added a small chopped onion and some garlic to the beef as I was browning it. I also used an entire package of frozen ravioli. I did not cook them just put them in frozen and they came out fully cooked and tender. Because I used an entire package of ravioli I increased the sauce. Very easy receipe and will make again.
This was so easy to put together, and very filling. I do think that next time I make this, I will use a spicy Italian Sausage, and seasoned diced tomatoes for a bit more flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!
Fast` and easy. Kids love it.
so easy , I didn't even cook the ravioli just placed them in the layers and it cooked in the oven. hearty , meaty, and easy. My hubby and son ate twice. Its a keeper
As I often do with Allrecipes, I used this recipe as a base and made a few modifications. The key change for me was in the sauce - I used 1 lb. lean ground beef browned with 1/2 finely diced yellow onion and 1 clove minced garlic. Brown, drain, then add a 29oz can of crushed tomatoes, a 6oz can of tomato paste, 1 tbsp brown sugar, a pinch of dried basil, and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Simmer 30 minutes. For the casserole, I used a 9x13 dish sprayed with cooking spray, and layered basically as directed, but used only mozzarella cheese. I did use an entire bag (24oz) of frozen cheese ravioli - Rosetto brand, very good. I covered and baked this for 30 minutes at 375. It was a hit with both the adults and kids :) I'll make it again.
This is the 2nd time I have made this and with the changes I made it went from a 3 star to a 5 star recipe! I omitted the diced tomatoes and used a can of condensed Tomato Soup instead. I also used an entire package of cheese ravioli's, which I cooked first according to the package directions, while I browned the ground beef. I baked the casserole, covered for 30 minutes; removed the foil and topped the casserole with additional shredded Mozzarella and baked uncovered for 15 minutes until the cheese was bubbly and lightly browned along the edges. I let it sit for 15 minutes on the counter while I made some garlic bread and tossed a big green salad to serve along with this. I think letting it sit made it set up and it turned out more like a lasagne (without all the work); not as soupy as the first time I made this. My family LOVED this!!!! I love how easy it is to prepare and it will become a pantry meal for me because I usually have all the ingredients to make this in my pantry and freezer. A great go to meal when I havn't been to the grocery store in a while. P.S. - This reheats beautifully; the leftovers are fantastic as well!!!
This recipe is borderline cheating on cooking a satisfying weeknight meal. Frozen cheese ravioli is morphed into a meaty cheesy ravioli in less than an hour. The recipe is fine as is, but I will add some zip next time with a bit of onions sauteed prior to browning the meat. Also be sure to salt and pepper the beef while it's browning. This is worth five stars for the combination of being quick coupled with good taste.
So simple and so delicious. Great as left overs as well. My husband doesn't like chunky tomatoes so I put them of half of the batch and just added some more spaghetti sauce to his side so it wasn't so dry. Very good.
I really liked the sauce/meat part on this. I didn't have time to make the best marinara sauce yet recipe from Allrecipes, like I had planned, but bought a good quality marinara in a jar. The problem I had was with the ravioli part. I also bought a good brand of that to, but it just didn't seem to blend with the delicious meat sauce. I would have just liked the sauce with some spaghetti. The only change I made was using low fat products, although it still has a lot of cheese, so I cut the amount in half. I also sprinkled a little garlic salt on top when done, because the sauce was missing a little garlic flavor.
This is great...I had to double (perfect for 9x13)for my teenage boys. Big hit; will make again
Browning ground beef, opening a jar, a can and packaged food barely qualifies as cooking and certainly doesn't require a recipe.
Pretty good stuff! I doubled the cheese, halved the amount of ravioli, doubled the sauce and added italian seasoning and garlic to the cooked beef. With these changes, a pretty good, quick and easy meal. Thanks for sharing this recipe, LUVINMYHUBBY!
Quick easy meal
Oh my was this good! The whole family LOVED this! I added some sauteed onions, garlic, green pepper, and mushrooms (needed to use up produce) and it really added great flavor! Will definitely be in our regular rotation! Thank you :)
A wonderful version of lasagna. Quick, easy and everybody loved, what more could you ask from a recipe!
This was good. I spiced up the spag. sauce and used the ravioli frozen. Required 50 mins baking time at 350 for 9x13 pan.
I loved this, like another suggested I used the whole pkg of frozen raviolis. I also only had a can of chopped tomatoes with green pepper, onion and celery. It turned out great and flavorful, even my picky boyfriend loved it!
I substituted sausage for the ground beef, couldn't find frozen ravioli, so I used two packages of cheese-filled tortellini (cooked it) and used a package of pre-shredded Italian style cheese. Definitely a big hit.
This gets 5 stars because it's such a simple and clever dish to put together. I did follow the recipe ingredients list, but did use a diced tomato that was flavored with roasted garlic and onion. I also did not drain the juice. I added a can of tomato sauce to my spaghetti sauce/tomato combo so that I would have enough to make a small casserole for my mother-in-law. We all enjoyed it.
Very good and easy. Will make again!
Allow casserole to "set-up" a few minutes before serving. I used 2 cups of mozerella cheese, because that is what I had on hand. Serve with green salad and garlic bread.
I really liked this. Next time I will add in some sausage with it. Great recipe!
This was really good. A great way to use up my left over meat sauce other that ziti or lasagna. I used all mozzarella.
This is an excellent recipe, I doubled everything but the beef and tomatoes and it fit nicely into my smaller shallow Dutch oven. I did add ricotta to the other cheeses and used fresh parmesan. I also added a chopped onion and garlic to the ground beef. Make sure you check the spiciness of your tomato sauce as I should have added more oregano to mine. A little red pepper would have helped as well but this is a personal taste. Quick, easy and tasty, and worth five stars. My lasagna takes all afternoon to make and this is a quick alternative.
Really good. I don't usually change the recipe but there didn't seem to be enough sauce for the top. I took one can of tomato soup added pepper and italian spices and garlic powder and poured over the top. It was really good. My kids loved it.
Got this in my inbox yesterday, and decided to give it a try. It was very quick and easy. I did make a few modifications--added diced onion and fresh garlic to the ground turkey (substitution for beef), while it was browing, added mushrooms and lots of spices to the sauce, (basil, crushed red pepper flakes, oregano etc...). Made it in a 9 x 13, since I nearly doubled it. Cooked it 45 minutes, and it probably could have cooked just a little longer. Served it with a great bread and light salad, made a hearty meal. Would make again, possibly with more sauce. It seemed runny when I first pulled it out of the oven, but after sitting a few minutes, ended up looking like a mock lasagna. Guests liked it a lot. Thanks!
Easy and tasty!
Very Good! I used hot italian sausage instead of ground beef - husband's favorite. Other than that, everything was the same and it was a big hit.
I thought this was very good. The first time I made it, I pretty much stuck to the recipe, except for subbing a can of crushed tomatoes for the diced tomatoes. I'm making again tonight and will use both ground beef and mild Italian sausage & will season w/salt & pepper. I'm using Prego spaghetti sauce w/mushrooms and will use crushed tomatoes again. Also, once I add the sauce & tomatoes to the meat, I always "doctor" my tomato-based sauces with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, a little sugar (to cut the bite of the tomatoes), and dried herbs (oregano & basil). So good & filling. Can't wait...time to cook now!!!
Absolutely loved this one!!! Family raved! I used a whole bag of ravioli and a bit more sauce to compensate for the whole bag. I did add some veggies to the sauce because I had to use up some mushrooms and onions. Chopped the mushrooms and onion and sauteed with the meat. I loved the leftovers for lunch! Yum! Will definitely be making often!
I like that this was so easy, quick and tasty. It added a little bit of something to normally very plain frozen ravioli.
My husband and I loved it. I used fresh ravioli and cheddar cheese instead of Monterey Jack. I ended up putting the whole can of tomatoes with juice and it still ended up great! Will definitely make this again.
I sauteed 1/2 a large onion and some garlic with the beef, didn't defrost the ravioli and layered the dish then in a 375 deg oven for 45 mins or so. Easy weeknight meal and a kid pleaser.
Yep, these are good. I have made these with Cheese Ravioli and they are just as good. I like to make this a day before when I am preparing another dinner as it is quick and easy. Then let cook for 30 minutes and stick in fridge. It is then all ready for the next nights meal, just reheat and serve.
This was a very hearty meal hubby and kids loved it. The only chnges I made were I used an italian blend cheese and after it was all put together I spooned on some more jar sauce.Next time I am going to be really brave and use homemade ravioli
This was a very easy ansd tasty meal. I am a pasta lover so I am always looking for something new to try. My family loved it. I doubled the recipe. I also added extra seasonings to my jar of spaghetti sauce such as minced garlic, minced onion, Italian seasoning and cayenne pepper. I like a little zip to my sauce. I will definitely make again.
This was a really simple recipe that got a lot of nice reviews from my family. Even as a leftover. It was nice for a quick easy weekday meal. I think to change it up the next time I will use petite diced tomatoes as regular were a bit large and I used mini but will use regular ravioli
Easy and delicious. A great alternative to lasagna.
Delicious! Should have thawed ravioli first though!
So yummy. My husband loves it. It's like the shortcut version of lasagna. Had my doubts about not boiling the ravioli first, but it came out perfectly.
I've made this twice following the recipe exactly. It is easy & quick to prepare & is delicious! I especially love the cheesy meat sauce. Will continue to make for my family with a good salad & hot buttered rolls.
Easy and very tasty. I love cheese, so I used 2 cups of Mozzarella and 2 cups of Colby/Jack. I used Prego for the sauce. Yum...will make again.
I browned the beef with minced garlic and onion. I also used Italian diced tomatoes and extra cheese.I did not cook the ravioli. This was so simple and soooo good !!! Tasted like Lasagna without all the work. Yumm Yumm !!! Try it with Italian Sausage - Thank you for sharing
Had this at a friend's house and had to get the recipe for my family. She used Paul Newman's Sockarooni Sauce instead of regular spaghetti sauce that had lots of ingredients and flavor and it was wonderful.
was awesome!!! did add half onion/2 cloves garlic with the meat (added 2 links italian sausage w/ ground beef). added salt, pepper, and oregano to meat. doubled the raviolis and used a regular size jar of meat speg. sauce. was very good. had garlic bread sticks and caesar salad. my son said it was better than olive garden! mmmm.
Loved this! Did as other reviews said to do: 1 small chopped onion, garlic powder to the meat. Used a 25oz sauce, alittle more cheese and baked in a casserole dish on 450 for 30 mins.
Excellent recipe! First time I used the cheese ravioli. We loved it but the kids weren't too hot on the cheese ravioli. Next time I made it with the beef ravioli and left out the pound of ground beef. Everyone was happy that time. This is a great meal that really doesn't take long to throw together. I used more than half the package of ravioli and I didn't measure the cheese, just eyeballed it. Tonight is the third night I'm making it! :)
My 4 picky teenagers can't get enough of this - I have to double it every time! I like to use Italian sausage for the ground beef, or 1/2 sausage and 1/2 ground beef. Wonderful, quick, easy... I'd give it 10 stars if I could!
This is a great recipe, especially when it is my son's night to cook! It goes well in the slow cooker -- just follow the directions as given, and cook on high for 2 hours. If in a hurry, frozen meatballs work just as well! In fact, we prefer it that way. Thanks for the great recipe! :)
Four out of four thumbs way up from my family, which is very rare! Everyone had seconds or thirds. I didn't change a thing, except to add a little salt to the sauce after tasting. It was very easy to make. I'm putting this into my regular rotation for sure. Thank you!
I thawed my ravioli first in the fridge before assembling this. Use more sauce since the ravioli does soak up a lot of it. Just gage it depending on how much ravioli you use. I use 1/2 ground beef, 1/2 italian sausge. Good flavors this way. This is a great potluck or weeknight meal. Let it sit for about 5 min. before serving the the ravioli can soak up the extra liquid.
I thought this was a wonderful meal and it was very easy to prepare. I will use a larger jar of sauce the next time.
Family loved this recipe. I had used fresh ravioli and ground veal instead of beef. I doubled the recipe in hopes to have some left for lunch LOL only none was left. I found that the sauce was thick which is the way my family loves sauces for pasta. I added 2 small cans of tomato sauce to ensure that there was enough for the fresh pasta. Will be making again.
This was incredible! I made it just as the recipe called for and it was a big hit at my house. Even my hubby (who doesn't particularly care for Italian cuisine) loved it. He asked for the leftovers the next day! Definitely a keeper, and one that will go in the monthly rotation of meal planning! Thanks for the great recipe!
This was awesome. I am not a big fan of ravioli usually but this was great. I did take some advice from some of the other reviewers and added my own touch to it (onions, mushrooms and garlic powder) but I will definitely make it again.
Awesome!!!I didn't use Monterey Jack cheese because I didn't have any or the diced tomatoes because of the kids & it still came out great! I know it would have been even better with those things. My kids who said it was "just okay", had 2nds & 3rds & cleaned out the pan. When it came out of the oven, it looked like it came from an Italian restaraunt. This is a nice change of pace from speghetti and lasagna. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It was also very quick & easy to put together which every working mom or dad can appreciate.
My family absolutely loves this dish.
This is really good but we changed a few things.
This was so good! I mixed 1/2 pound of italian sausage with 1/2 a pound of beef. I used italian style diced tomatoes and used a full bag of the frozen ravioli. I also added some fresh mushrooms to the meat mixture before adding the sauce and tomatoes. It isn't necessary to boil the ravioli before putting in the oven. Mine was fully frozen and it came out perfect! Tasted like it was from a restaurant!!
I made this last night and was so good.I used the whole bag of ravioli and 26oz.of sauce,also more cheese.The whole family loved.
See, cooking good tasty meals that are not your ordinary is what it's all about . I appreciate foods like this because that's what these recipes are and of course we all find those little tweaks to make it our own .But let's not forget it's all about being a community here and sharing ideas without criticism so I always respect the original creator and prepare it by directions first. This is a great dish with no tweaks but everyone has their own tastes, I appreciate the many ideas I have gotten from this site and hats off to everyone that has contributed a recipe no matter what feedback they have received. Keep cooking everyone!
It wasn't bad tasting. But it wasn't anything exciting.
Teens,husband and I loved it. Didn't have much time, so: I browned the meat with garlic while setting a pot of water to boil. After draining grease from meat, I added one and one half jars of spaghetti sauce with a few of my own seasonings while throwing the pasta into boiling water. They only take 4 minutes! I had Italian cheese casserole mix and used it. I layered ingredients as reciped called for and popped into 375 degree oven to heat briefly. I can't believe how much everyone loved the dish. Served with caeser salad mix from a bag and garlic bread--quick and easy.
Really good. I only had canned tomatoes with green chilis and just a little bit of mozerlla which I made up for by using cheddar. Still tasted great, and I think I even liked the little bite the tomatoes gave the sauce.
Some of us know how to open cans but aren't creative enough to know which ones to combine. Recipes like this are great for people like me :) I tried it with Meat Ravioli (husband is all about the meat) but I'm going to try it again with Cheese ravioli. I think it was a simple yet tasty recipe which is all I ever ask for.
This was awesome! I used beef ravioli instead because my kids don't like the cheese kind. Everyone loved it.
A super easy alternative to lasagna, and a lot cheaper too.
A good recipe for pasta lovers. An easy recipe that pleases my pasta loving family. I cooked up 2 Italian sausages, cut into small round pieces which added a little zing to the dish. I also cooked up 1/2 pound of ground beef. Since I didn't have any jar sauce, I made my own sauce.
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS! I used a full bag of ravioli and a 26oz. jar of pasta sauce (omitting the diced tomatoes). I did not cook the ravioli ahead, but did assemble it maybe 45 minutes before I was gonna bake it and allowed it to set until I was ready. I baked it @ 350 degrees for 40 minutes w/ a cover and about 10-15 with the cover removed. I will definately be making this again...it was GREAT! Thanks for sharing. :)
This dish was a great jumping off point for me. I did make some major changes to the sauce. The only recommendation is that it is baked at 375 for at least an hour. Take off aluminum foil for the last 1/2 hour to brown the top. I think 450 is way too hot. Sometimes quicker is not necessarily better. A great shortcut to lasagna. My husband loved it!
So easy and so good on a rainy cold day..I used my own sauce instead of jar..but added the diced tomatoes...(:^)
