This was very delicious and so simple and quick to make. I made this several hours before dinner and I can't stop nibbling at it. I know for sure this going to be added to my rotation of meals. I think this is great for dinner or lunch. I hope to add a picture if I don't eat it all before grabbing my camera. BTW, I used turkey Italian sausage...so yummy. I don't eat pork.
All I can say is OMG!!! Very Good!!
Easy to prepare, since I already had homemade tomato sauce in the fridge. I didn't have cheese ravioli, but I did have cheese tortellini, so used that. I used some real bacon, chopped and lightly fried. We really enjoyed this, DH said, very very good :)
