Oh. My. Gosh. This was soooo GOOD!!! For all you food snobs out there, us "working class" folks don't have time to make everything from scratch. Shame on you for looking down at us or snubbing a good recipe due to it being "semi-homade" (geezsh)! Because my hubby & I work long hours, we rarely have time to make elaborate meals during the week. When planning this week's meals, I stumbled upon LUVINMYHUBBY's recipe & IMMEDIATELY knew I HAD to give it a try. In order to spend less time in the kitchen tonight, I browned my beef / onion (I added a small diced onion when browning my beef) on Sunday. I then mixed in my sauce / tomatoes (Hunt's balsamic, EVOO & basil flavored) & threw in my (covered) Tupperware Mix-N-Stor pitcher. Tonight, all I had to do was assemble everything & pop in the oven. NOTE: I started to layer 1/2 of my raviolis in my 8 x 8 in. baking dish & by the 2nd (final) layer, I had used the entire bag! That, subbing meat filled ravioli for the cheese variety (hubby's request), adding an onion (as mentioned previously) & not using any Parm (personal preference) were my only changes. There are TWO important things to note here. First, you DO NOT need to boil your ravioli (that would negate the simplicity of the entire dish). If the recipe submitter thought you should, she would have instructed to do so. Second, as is, this takes more like 40 min. to heat thru. Served w/ a bagged salad mix & garlic bread, this was a FANTASTIC and EASY meal! Thanks for sharing! :-)
