Ravioli Bake

1 (26-28 oz) favorite pasta sauce
1 lb lean ground beef
1 (25-27 oz) package frozen cheese-filled ravioli
1 can Italian style diced tomatoes
2 c shredded mozzarella cheese
2 T parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray bottom of 9 by 13 pan. Spread a layer of the pasta sauce in baking dish. Arrange half of the frozen ravioli in single layer over sauce. Top with half of the remaining sauce and 1 c mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers once, starting with ravioli. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese on top. Bake for 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

*Tastes like lasagna, but is SO much simpler!

TIP: You can also make this without the ground beef for a tasty meatless dish. I also put a little bit of Medium Cheddar cheese in with it, but I like the tangy taste of cheddar in Italian dishes...just another twist!
