Mock Ravioli

"This is a recipe my DH's daughter gave me, it is one her late mother used to make alot, and that her Father loved. I am posting it here so as not to lose it, which is a problem I seem to keep having with this one I lay it down in my Big Red Book and darned if when I want it, it hasn't gotten up and moved itself to one of my other books. Although this looks complicated to make most of the preparation is opening cans so don't be afraid to use this and be sure to remember it is great family get together food too. Can be made ahead and frozen also for one of those OAMC meals."

  1. This was a little too dry, we thought. Next time I will make less noodles so there is more sauce. That will also make for a smaller casserole, which is good since I'm only feeding two.
  2. A great casserole! We loved this and I will add this to my favorite recipes. Had small onions so I used two and ground round to cut down on the fat. Spinach is not a favorite of DH's so I used only 8 ounces of spinach and one 4 1/2 ounce can of mushrooms. I also saved some of the cheddar cheese to sprinkle on top right before the casserole was finished baking. Served with ChaCha's Recipe #178080 and enjoyed a great supper! Made and reviewed for Kitten's Chef Pick Tag Game.
  3. Delicious! DH and I both loved this! Made as directed, however I didn't have butterfly pasta so used spiral pasta. This is a winner ChaCha! I also saved 1/2 the cheese to sprinkle on top, and only used one huge onion which was plenty for us, as well as fresh chopped garlic. I will be making this again! Made for Kittencal's Chef's Pick Tag. :)
  4. Yum, yum, yum, yum. What else can I say? Made according to the directions but didn't use the spinach - not my choice! Oh, I also saved half the cheese to sprinkle on top. I will make this again for sure - my sons took third helpings! Made for Kittencal's Chef's Pick Tag. Thanks ChaCha! :)
  5. this is an absolutely delicious casserole, I made some minor amount changes and used farfalle pasta, I also added in 6 large garlic cloves and 2 tablespoons crushed chili flakes to the ground beef mixture, when I drained the beef I then mixed in 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, this is one I will make again for sure, thank you for sharing this Chachie!
