"I think that the creamy sauce makes it a little like a lasagna, but made with ravioli. I've always made this with dried basil and it still tastes great!"

""I made the casserole, but I assembled it in an 8x8 aluminum pan with two layers of raviolis. I had leftover ground meat sauce so I used that instead of marinara. The "white cheese sauce" was easy to make, and it's very tasty.""

"This was a simple recipe and used easy-to-find-in-our-kitchen ingredients! I used chicken broth in place of the wine/vegetable broth, and dried crushed basil in place of the fresh. Both substitutions were fine. I also used extra marinara sauce and layered some of this on the bottom of the dish before baking.

I felt that the recipe made too much of the creamy white sauce and ended up taking almost a cup and a half of this out to use for another recipe. When I make this again, I will definitely reduce this part of the recipe."

"Very tasty and easy to make. I used about a cup and a half on milk in the sauce because I have learned from other recipes that less is more. I used 1 cup of mozzerella and 1/4 parmesan but next time I will cut back on the cheese. I also omitted the the second cup of mozzerella that it says to add before putting the marinara on top because I felt it would be too much. I did sprinkle a small amount of mozzerella on top before baking and didn't add any more parmsean letting individuals add it if they desire. I will definitely make this again!"

"Very Tasty! There was alot of sauce, but I tend to like that and it was thick & cheesy! The nutmeg added a very nice different taste, that I loved!"

"This was very yummy. I think that there was a bit too much sauce for that amount of ravioli, so I think next time I'll use more pasta so we don't have so much extra sauce. Thanks!"

"Delicious! I split it into 2 small casserole dishes and froze the 2nd one for another day since it's just my husband and me. The only thing I did differently was to use dried basil since that is what I had."

"I used Prego Spaghetti Sauce, better flavor IMO. Also, I thought it was a bit too cheesy so the next time I made it I used ravioli with meat rather than cheese. It was delicious that way."
