This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe found on "AllRecipes" web site. While probably not as good as home made ravioli, it is a budget stretcher as well as a kid pleaser.

I also got this recipe from Taste of Home. It is a definite family pleaser. It also freezes well, making it a busy mom's pleaser! The only change I make is using my own spaghetti sauce recipe in place of the jarred. Thanks for posting!
This is a good dish. I got this recipe from Taste of Home Magazine a few years back. I added a little bit of garlic powder and left out the mushrooms, because I don't care for them. Thanks for posting!
This one originally came from a BH&G 1965 issue. Can be frozen and/or prepared in advance and then heated.
