Canned Ravioli made tastier with this simple recipe
How to spruce up canned Ravioli
I'm fixing to tell you something. You probably won't believe that you can make canned Ravioli taste like home made. Homemade is always better. But, you can make Canned Ravioli taste better. I used to think I was realy doing something to make it taste better if I added a dolup of butter.
But, When you just don't have the time for all the preparations of homemade sauce, boiling noodles, don't feel like it or just ran out of ideas what to cook for dinner.
Then try this!
I'm sure you and your family will enjoy it. They won't believe you when you tell them "it's canned ravioli"!
- 1 Large and 1 small Cans of meat Ravioli
- 1 lb Ground Beef
- 1in thick chunk Velveeta Cheese, melted
- 1/2 large Onion, chopped
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 Can or Jar of your Favorite Spagetti Sauce
- 1/4 tsp salt, to taste more or less
Saute'd onions and groundbeef mixture
Preheat oven 375 degrees while you are putting everything together
In a skillet sauté onions, garlic, salt and ground beef till meat is brown.
1) Drain grease
2) Pour meat mixture in a casserole dish
3) Open canned ravioli and spaghetti sauce, pour it over the meat mixture
4) add melted Velveeta cheese and mix everything GENTLY together.(Remember the noodles are very soft already)
Cover with silver foil, put a few holes at the top of the foil and Put in the oven for about 15-20 minutes till bubbly
No, it's not Homemade ravioli
Ready to eat and out of the Oven
After you have taken it out of the oven, unwrap the silver foil and sprinkle your favorite cheese over it.
Let the heat from the raviolis melt the cheese or you can take the foil off and sprinkle cheese while it is still in the oven 5-10 minutes before taking out.
Add Toppings for more flavor or just because
Optional topping : Parmesan, cheddar or mozzarella cheese. What ever you like!
Just green lettuce with ranch dressing and cheese
The end result on the plate
Serve with Crusty Garlic Bread
So now what used to be a bland can of Ravioli, has evolved into a Fabulous meal!
This one is served on paper plates because I didn't feel like washing dishes. This meal was so easy to fix the only dishes I had to clean up was the pan and spoon that were used to sauté the ground beef and onions in.
Oh, and the forks. Could have used plastic ones but didn't have any.
How lazy can a person get? Life is good!
Add a simple Salad on the side
Your simple canned ravioli meal is now an Extravagant Meal!
We have added, Crusty garlic bread and a side salad.
We all know how easy a salad is to make. Since now a days you can buy lettuce already cut up with all the fixings in a bag!
Canned ravioli and salad from a bag. Times sure have changed since my time.
What made me fix this for dinner?
I had one of those days where it just wasn't in me to cook that night. I had not gone to the grocery store in a couple of days so there was nothing in the freezer worth cooking. All I had was a package of 1lb ground beef and a hunk of cheese in the fridge. That wasn't enough to feed five people.
I pulled out the ground beef, looked in the cabinet to see if there was anything that could turn this one pounder of meat into something to feed all these people.
Well, I found the canned Ravioli's and went from there!
After I put everything together and slid the meal in the oven, I felt better about dinner. I began looking for some more things to add to this meal. I found a bag of lettuce and some frozen garlic bread rolls.
For Quick reference I have added a couple of good sites for Planning meals and finding Recipes. I enjoy them and hope you do to. I am not and they are not in an
