Do-Ahead Sausage Ravioli Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Petunia

This originally came from a Betty Crocker softcover #190. It has to be prepared at least 8 hours before dinner, so you'll have plenty of clean-up time before the guests arrive! The prep time does not include the 8 hrs. fridge time.

This was awesome; however, I changed the Italian sausage to turkey! Other than that, everything else was EXACTLY the same. Not only did my husband and I like it, my picky 5-year-old loved it. We had enough for lunch the next day! Delicious!
