I have made this three times. The first time, I made it as stated in recipe. It tasted a little too much like tomato sauce and there wasn't really enough sauce for my family's taste. The second go at it, I doubled the sauce except for the tomato sauce. It was better but still lacked something and still not enough sauce for us. The third time, I made it and tripled the sauce except for the tomato sauce, still only used 1/2 cup. I added 5 crackers soaked in 1/2 cup of water to the meat and left it raw. The water made the meat easier to form in the wontons. I used one wonton wrapper with 1 teaspoon of filling in it and folded it in half, pressed the filling flat leaving just enough of the wonton exposed to get a seal on the edge, then boiled them 6 or 7 at a time for 8 minutes. With less meat, added water and having it flattened, the meat did get done. Then I layered the cooked wontons and sauce in a 9 X 13 baking dish and covered it with foil. Placed it in the refrigerator overnight and baked it for 40 minutes @ 350° the next day when I was ready for supper. The baked one was the best. It does taste similar to Chef Boyardee as best I can remember but it has been about 8 years since I have eaten it. My children were greatful to get ravioli again (we don't eat canned or processed meat any more) and insisted it get 5 stars just because they get ravioli. Oh, I also browned about two tablespoons of the meat filling and put it in the sauce it was a nice addition. Sorry for the lengthy review. I will continue to tinker with it until it is perfect for my picky eaters but can't thank you enough for giving me a place to start.
