This was so good. I've made it several times but my family's fav is when I use beef ravioli.

It was great inspiration for my own version of a ravioli casserole

This was really good and easy. The pumpkin is a good way to get the kids to eat vegies. They don't even know it is there. Very very tastey!

I made this tonight along with a salad for my family. It's easy to prepare and so good to eat. My family had nothing but raves and my son ask if we could have this again

Easy casserole with the Unexpected

When I saw pumpkin I was not sure that may husband would like this. The pumpkin added a smooth richness that is there but you don't know where it comes from. You also get the healthy addition of more fiber and vitamins.This was easy and fast. Sort of like a lasagna with out all the layering. Will make this again.

This recipe is great. It is easy to make and different types of meat can be substituted or can be done for vegitarian style. This is very versital. Large quantity can be made and then frozen for quick meals in the future.

Overly complicated directions; result is still goo

by S. Susan , GRASS LAKE, MI on Dec. 2007

I substituted 3 cans of ravioli, and chopped up some leftover sausage from breakfast. Basically, simple, just layer ravioli, sauce and cheese, then repeat and bake. My family agreed it was good, with garlic bread and a small green salad.
