Baked Ravioli Recipe

Ingredients
1 bag frozen light cheese or meat ravioli, approx. 24 oz
1 jar pasta sauce, approx. 26 oz
4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese or Italian cheese mix, lowfat or 2%
2 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
Garlic powder and Italian spices to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spoon 1/3 jar over bottom of 13 X 9 pan. Place frozen ravioli on bottom of pan evenly. If you have a couple extra ravioli once bottom is covered, place them on top of other ravioli. Pour the remaining sauce over ravioli and around the edges to cover the ravioli. Add spices to taste. Sprinkle the shredded cheese and the parmesan cheese over the top. Cover with tin foil & bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve with garlic bread and vegetables. Enjoy!

Additions: you can easily add your favorite veggies like spinach, green peppers, onions and mushrooms or diced cooked chicken or cubed tofu to this dish. Place them on top of the ravioli before adding the sauce and cheese.
