Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound spicy Italian sausage, casing removed
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 (16-ounce) package cheese-filled ravioli
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, chiffonade

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add Italian sausage and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks; drain excess fat.
  3. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in ravioli and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until ravioli is tender, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat; top with mozzarella and Parmesan. Place into oven and cook until melted and golden brown, about 2-4 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with basil, if desired.
