10 minutes20 minutes

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

  • 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.

    This is delicious ! Approved by boyfriend as well . Although he likes his ravioli creamier would I might substitute 1.5 cups of water with whole milk next time . Made it with ground turkey to keep the fat low .

    I’m making this tonight, But the water is not on the ingredient list. Thanks for all of the delicious meals, your site is the first one I go to for a new recipe. My family loves the baked chicken strips! make them every few weeks.

    DELISH!!!!!! Would it taste almost as good substituting the Italian sausage for Polska kielbasa? Thinking if trying it this way for our 9 year old who loves kielbasa.

  6. This is fantastic!!! It’s my husband favorite meal I make. I have made it at least 15 times. Company worthy!

  7. I’m substituting the Italian sausage for 99% lean ground turkey to take out a little bit more fat, because I watch all the fats I eat. Also the mozzarella I’m using is low fat made with skim milk.

  8. This is one of my go to recipes now thanks to you! I have a tip you might like, instead of using plain cheese raviolis I tried the arugula and parmesan reggiano raviolis that I found in the deli section at Trader Joe’s. They were awesome and gave a nice depth of flavor to this already dynamite recipe. Thanks for posting!

  9. I doubled the recipe and used both sweet and hot ground italian sausage and it weas outstanding.

  10. Just wanted to let you know that this recipe is filed under vegetarian meals. Although someone could substitute the meat with veggie sausage, you may want to take this one out. Love your recipes. I make them often.

  11. Do you use frozen or those fresh/refrigerated ravioli to make this?

  12. I made this dish lat night and it was indeed…. Damn Delicious! thanks

  13. This looks so DELISH!!!! I am super limited on time tonight, so I’m thinking this will be perfect!
