As mentioned in the PH, here is the recipe for the ravioli casserole I posted about:

 

  • 1 (24 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 lb ground beef (or turkey)
  • 1 clove garlic - crushed (I usually substitute garlic powder and onion powder)
  • 48 frozen raviolis (for a 13x9 pan, this will make 2 layers of 24 raviolis per layer)
  • 1 (8 oz) package of shredded Italian blend cheese
  • 1 (2.25 oz) can sliced black olives - optional
Instructions
  1. Brown ground beef/turkey on medium heat.
  2. Once the ground beef is almost completely browned, add your crushed garlic (or garlic powder & onion powder to taste) and continue to saute.
  3. Add the spagetti sauce to the browned meat, stir to combine, reduce heat to low, and cover/simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Place a small amount of meat sauce on the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish.
  5. Layer one layer of ravioli on top of the meat sauce (should take ~24 raviolis to make 1 complete layer).
  6. Add another layer of meat sauce.
  7. Add a layer of 1/2 of the Italian cheese (and olives if desired).
  8. Repeat layers, starting with ravioli.
  9. Top it off with cheese.
  10. Bake at 350° for 40-45 min.  If using fresh raviolis, reduce the cooking time to 30-35 minutes.

And for reference, here is a pic of the final product:

I'm going to attempt this with cheese tortellini and Italian sausage in place of the ravioli and hamburger.

Made this today, using home canned tomato's and beef I slaughtered myself. This is very good, and the best use yet for frozen ravioli.
