Baked Ravioli Casserole

For a quick and easy recipe packed full of flavor try this easy Baked Ravioli Casserole. I started with a bag of frozen cheese ravioli and a jar of spaghetti sauce. I added some ground beef, petite tomatoes, spices and vidala onion to the sauce. I always start with a basic spaghetti sauce and doctor it up a little so it tastes more like homemade. If there is a sauce you like just as it is I’d use it but found I needed the extra tomatoes so I had a little more sauce.
