Serving Suggestions

The delicious tomato sauce is so flavorful that you will want something to dip into that sauce. We love Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks Recipe and it is perfect for getting every last bit of that amazing sauce. We often serve a simple salad with this meal. It is quick and easy.

You could also try Roasted Green Beans or learn how to steam broccoli in the microwave for a super easy veggie side dish.

We love to keep things simple around here so we can get dinner on the table fast.

  1. Carrie says:

    Karen – Sorry for the confusion. I put the remaining shredded cheese on top of the casserole prior to covering it with foil and prior to baking it for the entire time. I have updated the recipe to make it more clear. Thank you!

  2. Karen says:

    Do you put the other half of the cheese on top at the end, or for the whole bake time?

  3. Dee Austin says:

    This is easy to assemble and toss in the oven as soon as you get home OR, my favorite, assemble the night before and throw in the oven as soon as you get home! Another one that saves us from fast food!

  4. Carrie says:

    No, it wouldn’t need to cook as long if they are not frozen.

  5. Brittney Harris says:

    Would this half to cook as long if the ravioli wasn’t frozen?
