    You can make this REALLY fast and easy by using jarred sauce and putting the frozen ravioli right into the oven. I used 2 jars of sauce, 1 1/2 packages of ravioli, covered it in foil and increased the baking time (I think close to 50 minutes) I uncovered for the last 10 minutes and topped with the cheese. Thanks so much for a great idea!  -  25 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used jarred sauce to save time and made 2 layers of sauce ravioli and cheese. Very quick and tasty.  -  28 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My family liked this, although other reviews are right, it tastes a lot like lasagna. I used a 9 oz package of fresh ravioli and made 1/4 of the sauce. This was perfect for the three of us and even had enough left over for my daughter and I to have for lunch today. I would like to try this with meat ravioli next time. I think it would make an interesting combination. Also, if anyone is wondering I don't see why you can't use jarred sauce to save time. I made the sauce as directed. It was good, but nothing spectacular.  -  14 Oct 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
