  • 1 9x13 baking pan


For the Sauce:

  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1 pound ground beef* I used 96/4
  • 25 oz marinara sauce
  • 14.5 oz petite diced tomatoes 1 can
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

For the Baked Ravioli

  • 30 oz refrigerated ravioli
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese grated


Make the Sauce

  • Spray a large, nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add in the diced onion and ground beef. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Break apart the meat as it browns.
  • Once meat is completely browned, add in marinara sauce, petite diced tomatoes, water, more salt & pepper and seasonings. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer. You will want to cook this for at least 10 minutes. It's ok if its a little watery because the ravioli will absorb that extra moisture to cook in the oven.

Layer the Ravioli

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Layer 15 oz of fresh ravioli in the bottom of the pan. Top with half of the sauce and half of the grated cheese. Top with remaining ravioli, sauce and cheese.


  • Cover with lightly greased foil (to prevent the cheese from sticking) and bake 30 minutes. Remove the foil and cook another 10 minutes to brown the cheese. Alternately, you can broil for 1 minute.
  • Let the baked ravioli rest 10 minutes before serving.


*I use an extra low-fat ground beef, but if you are using a 90/10 or variety with a different ratio of meat to fat, you will want to drain off the fat. Cook the ground beef first, drain, then add in the onions and cook the sauce according to recipe directions.
