1 pound ground beef or ground turkey, chicken or Italian sausage (I used ground sweet Italian sausage)
1 small onion diced
24 ounces marinara
3 cloves garlic minced
2 cups ricotta cheese
1 large egg
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
¼ cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 tbsp dried Italian seasoning
25 ounces frozen cheese ravioli
2 cups shredded mozzarella
minced parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the ground meat and onion. Brown the meat, crumbling it as it cooks. Drain the grease from the pan.
Add the marinara sauce and garlic and simmer for 5 minutes over low heat.
mix ricotta, egg, Parmesan, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder and Italian seasoning in a small bowl.
Spoon 1/3 of the meat mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread across the bottom.
Top with a single layer of ravioli, ½ of the ricotta mixture, and 1/3 of the sauce. Repeat the layers, ending in marinara sauce.
Sprinkle the top with the shredded mozzarella. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove cover and bake for 10 minutes more.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with minced parsley.
Let set for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
