I've never been a huge fan of ravioli before. I don't know...there's something about overcooked wet pasta that you dump some sauce on that's never been really appealing to me. But my friend suggested I try baked ravioli. And what can I say--it's pretty bangin'. Super easy and really quite delicious. All I did was brown some ground beef, throw some sauce in the bottom of a 9x9 pan, alternating layers of sauce, meat, (still frozen) raviolis, and put a healthy serving of mozzarella on top. Cover it with foil, bake for 30 min. at 400, take the foil off and bake a couple more minutes uncovered. I also made a pan for us too. Ours was gluten free but totally delicious (and believe me, I was skeptical). I'm totally diggin' this sauce lately. It's a great pizza sauce (someday I'll share my pizza dough recipe...yum) in addition to pasta dishes (as I found out tonight). I usually add some brown sugar to my sauces, but this one is great as is. I highly recommend it.
This was the GF ravioli I used. Delish. Bonus points--I got it at a discount grocery store for only $1.49. One pack fed my family. A cheap AND delicious meal?? Sign me up!
So there ya have it--from heart attack to baked raviolis all in one post. Told ya I'm back;)
