Deep Dish Ravioli
1 bag (1 lb) fresh Cheese Filled Ravioli
1 lb. hamburger or ground turkey
1 jar of Spaghetti Sauce
1 can Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 chopped Onion (you can add more if you like)
4 gloves chopped Garlic (you can add more if you like)
Fresh Mozzarella Ball
Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat oven to 350.
Brown the hamburger in a large pot. when half way cooked add chopped onion and garlic. Drain fat from meat and add a pinch or two of Kosher Salt.
Add the can of diced tomatoes. Be sure to drain the tomatoes of all the juice. Cook for another few minutes to cook off excess liquid.
Put the hamburger mixture in a bowl and set it aside.
Using the large pot that was used to cook the hamburger in, fill with water and get it ready to boil for the Ravioli.
Once the water is boiling, add ravioli and cook according to package directions.
You will need 2 quart casserole dish for this recipe. It's square and the sides are about 3 inches high. You don't want a larger dish cause you want it to be sort of "deepish".
Add 1/3 of a cup of the sauce in the bottom of the casserole dish. Then layer 1/2 of the Ravioli in the dish.
Next spread half of the hamburger mixture on top of the ravioli and then sprinkle the top with fresh Parmesan cheese.
Next slice your fresh mozzarella and layer half of it over the meat mixture. Repeat the layers starting with the sauce.
Spread a final layer of sauce on the top and sprinkle with additional cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes. Take off foil and bake another 10 minutes. Take out of oven and set
aside. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with garlic bread and salad. Enjoy!
