I made this last night and it was delicious! Even my picky eater chimed in saying that it was good without being asked. I made one minor and one major substitution. I did not have tomato-basil red sauce so used traditional red sauce and added 1/2 TBL dried basil and reduced the Italian seasoning to 1/2 TBL. I was going to go to the store and buy some frozen raviolis when it hit me that I had the right size package of frozen tortellini on hand. In retrospect I think that this substitution actually enhanced the recipe by making it EZ to eat with a spoon and not having to cut up raviolis on my dinner plate. I'm sure that all the ingredients were easier to stir together in the pan. This one-pot meal gave me a chance to use my vintage Farberware Pot Pourri electric Dutch oven which made the meal even more of a treat. Thank you for posting such a great recipe. This would be wonderful to serve to a group of people. I will be making this again for sure!
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!
Great easy recipe. Recipe states 4 servings but would serve 6-8 especially with a salad and bread on the side.
This is a quick and easy recipe that is perfect for a weeknight meal. It came together quickly, and both my husband and sons liked it. The only change I would suggest is to add more cheese if you perfer. Overall, this is definitely a family friendly recipe that you can have on the table in about 30 minutes.
Great recipe. I used frozen ravioli and it worked just as well. The only thing that was a bit much was how much sauce the recipe calls for. I thought it was way too much and will definitely cut back next time.
