How to Make It

Step 1

Cook ground beef in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Wipe Dutch oven clean.

Step 2

Sauté onion and mushrooms in hot oil over medium-high heat 8 minutes or until tender. Add garlic, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in beef, pasta sauce, 1 cup water, and next 3 ingredients.

Step 3

Bring sauce to a boil; add ravioli. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes or until pasta is done. Stir in cheese. Serve immediately.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Classico Tomato & Basil pasta sauce and Buitoni Family Size Four Cheese Ravioli.

Perfect Weeknight Meal!

4 servings?! I don't know who they're feeding over there at Southern Living, but whoever they are they must take HUGE servings. This feeds more like 8 at least. But that's ok because you'll want extra. This is not only super easy to make, but soooo delicious! Refrigerated ravioli is a bit more expensive than frozen, quite a bit actually, so unfortunately I won't be making this dish very often unless I figure out a way to use frozen ravioli in it. I'm thinking maybe if I let it cook longer in the sauce it might work out the same. Pre-cooking the frozen ravioli, in my opinion, might make the pasta soggy and overdone. However, this dish is YUMMY the way it is!

This recipe is quick and easy. Great for a weeknight meal that can be put together in about 30 minutes. The kids thought it was great. It's like spaghetti but with ravioli instead of noodles. The tomato and basil pasta sauce gives the dish a great flavor. The mozzarella makes it even better. The kids say the recipe is a keeper. Indeed a good, solid recipe.

Great quick dinner. The only change I made was adding about 3tbsp of brown sugar to kill some of the tomato flavor and make my kids want to eat more of it.

This is a go-to recipe in my house! Easy to make on a busy weeknight. Also I will add black olives, mushrooms, zucchini, etc depending upon what I have on hand. I will substitute ground turkey or italian sausage for hamburger. Great with a simple salad and french bread.

My family loves this dish! My husband says it tastes like lasagna and has requested I make this often. It is very easy to throw together on a weeknight when we're all so busy.

I have made this many, many times and my family loves it! The only change I make is that I use soy crumbles instead of ground beef. The recipe makes quite a bit. I have a large family and we usually have some left over. It is super easy and tastes great.

Love this recipe. Already made it several times for guests. The only change I made was to use 1/2 my own homemade pasta sauce with 1/2 Classico. Quick and easy!
