For a quick and easy recipe packed full of flavor try this easy Baked Ravioli Casserole. I started with a bag of frozen cheese ravioli and a jar of spaghetti sauce. I added some ground beef, petite tomatoes, spices and vidala onion to the sauce. I always start with a basic spaghetti sauce and doctor it up a little so it tastes more like homemade. If there is a sauce you like just as it is I’d use it but found I needed the extra tomatoes so I had a little more sauce.

It was ready in less than an hour to make the casserole. While the sauce cooked I pre-boiled the ravioli. I only cooked it to about half way so it could finish cooking with the sauce and not be overcooked.

I baked the casserole covered with aluminum foil for 30 minutes before adding the mozzarella cheese.

After I added the cheese I turned the broiler to high and it took about 5 minutes to get the cheese all melted. I like doing it this way because the cheese will stay all soft and melted.
