Beef Ravioli Bake

Fall is here {technically in just days} and you know what that means--casseroles, comfort foods and turning on the oven again. I decided to try this recipe today, and it was a keeper. Everyone loved it. It's easy to put together and serves 8.

Beef Ravioli Bake 
inspired by Better Homes & Gardens
1 25 oz. package frozen Cheese ravioli (I used Kroger brand)
1 lb. lean ground beef
4 garlic cloves
1 small onion, chopped or 1/4 cup dry minced onion
1 10 oz. can condensed tomato soup
1 14 oz. can petite diced tomatoes
2 splashes of balsamic vinegar
1 T. brown sugar
2 t. Italian Seasoning blend
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook ravioli according to package directions. Meanwhile, brown ground beef with onion and garlic. Stir in tomato soup, tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and seasonings. Cook until hot and bubbly. Put cooked ravioli in a greased 8x11 inch baking dish and pour meat sauce over top. Carefully mix meat sauce into ravioli by lifting raviolis so sauce can run to the bottom. Top with parmesan and mozzarella. Bake in preheated 375 oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese is browned and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes and then serve.
