Mega-Cheese Ravioli Bake

I am eating leftovers of this RIGHT NOW and it's just as good as when I made it fresh last night. Oh man, is this ever good... It's got a lot of wiggle room so you can be creative with what you toss in there.

Estimated time:
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us 1 jar tomato parmersean sauce (10-15 oz)

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us 1 pound ground meat. I chose turkey. You can use whatever.

Cook your meat and ravioli. While it's all cooking, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease your baking dish/pan. Please remember to grease. I didn't, and now I have to clean this nasty, sticky mess.

Mix your sauce and your meat together and pour half of the mix into the bottom of the dish.

Layer your ravioli over the sauce and if you want, add a layer of cheese on like I did.

Then, pour the rest of the sauce over the pasta.

Bake for 20 minutes. Then, uncover the dish, add a layer of cheese, and let it bake uncovered for about 5 or 10 more minutes. Let the cheese get all gooey.

Eat.

The wonderful thing about this is the variety you can do with the ravioli, the meat, the sauce and the cheese. Like spinach? Make Popeye's Ravioli Bake by using spinach and cheese ravioli and adding cooked spinach to the sauce. Like it big and beefy? Use meat ravioli, a meat sauce, and...yeah...more kinds of meat. You can use any flavor combination you like. It's really easy, and it tastes good too.
