I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website, but added meat and a jar of pizza sauce to add more substance. The extra sauce also helps it to reheat nicely without drying out. Adding sauteed veggies to the sauce would be a great way to sneak in a few veggies into your family's diet and give the casserole more of a homemade taste. I'll definitely be trying that soon!
We've made this twice now and both times it's been a hit. I can't wait to make it for company or the next church potluck. I also have a crock pot version here.
1 lb ground beef
1 jar (26-28 oz) pasta sauce (I like Prego)
1 small jar pizza sauce
1 25 oz bag frozen cheese ravioli
2 c shredded mozaarella (I used a little less)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 inch dish with cooking spray.
2. Brown and drain ground beef. Pour enough sauce into the bottom of the dish to lightly cover it (about 3/4 cup). Pour remaining sauce into cooked beef. Layer half of ravioli in dish followed by half of the sauce and half of the cheese. Repeat layers ending with cheese.
3. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake and additional 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and hot in the center.
