Ella's Cheesy Baked Ravioli

Ella Thomas


My family really loves this recipe, it is a more affordable version of lasagne. Lean ground turkey may be substituted for ground beef and colby/jack and mild cheddar can be substitued for fiesta or casserole blend cheeses. I often will fix this for large family gathering because it is quick and affordable and it goes a long way to feed large crowds. Usually I don't have much if any left afterwards. This dish is great served with garlic bread and a green salad.
