  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 sweet onion diced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic divided
  • 24 ounces marinara sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 18 ounces frozen cheese ravioli
  • 2 cups ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup grated Mozzarella divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley


  • Heat a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and break it up as it cooks.
  • When meat is mostly cooked through stir in the onion and 2 cloves of garlic. Continue cooking until meat is cooked through. Drain fat and return to pan.
  • Add the marinara, water, and cheese ravioli to the skillet. Stir to submerge the ravioli in the pasta sauce.
  • Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 8 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
  • Stir together the ricotta cheese, Parmesan, 1/4 cup mozzarella, remaining clove of minced garlic, and parsley.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and drop spoonfuls of the ricotta mixture over the pasta. Spread to cover the pasta. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella.
  • Cover the skillet and let sit for 5 minutes to melt the mozzarella. Sprinkle with additional parsley before serving, if desired.
