Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until no longer pink. Drain grease, then stir in the spaghetti sauce and tomatoes.
  3. Spread 1/3 of the sauce in the bottom of an 11x7 inch baking dish. Arrange 1/2 of the ravioli over the sauce. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 of the Monterey Jack cheese over the ravioli. Repeat layers, ending with the last of the sauce on top. Cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top before serving.

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.

Good meal with some additions/changes. For all who aren't sure ... NO, you do not need to boil the ravioli first, but I let it thaw for a while before baking (about an hour), but you don't have to do this if you don't have time. Here's what else I changed. Add 1 diced onion and 1 tsp garlic to the beef. When adding the sauce add 1 small can sliced mushrooms. Use 26 oz jar spagetti sauce (I used Ragu No sugar added Basil Tomato) and WELL DRAINED diced tomatoes. This gave me plenty of sauce for the layering. Use the entire package of ravioli and a 9x13 dish. no need to grease/oil the dish. after the first layer of cheese I added small dollops of ricotta over entire pan. Also all cheese measurements need to be increased since using more ravioli and larger pan. Ended with sauce layer. Bake 30 min with foil on then decrease heat to 350, remove foil and bake an extra 15 minutes. After removing from oven and sprinkling with parmesan, allow the dish to cool for 5-10 minutes. This will make slicing/serving easier.

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!

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.

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!
