"This is a great recipe to use if dress up plain old ravioli. It is very quick and the sour cream compliments the sauce nicely. I left out the mushrooms and onion. I would suggest using a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce or a 14 oz. can of pizza sauce. I did not have any cheese ravioli on hand so I used beef filled ravioli. It was just as good and I added 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese to the mixture as well. If you are using cheese ravioli- try mixing in 1 pound of cooked ground beef. You could also try using less pasta if you will add the beef. Very easy and quick- good recipe for last minute dinners."

"This is very tasty! However, I doubled the amount of sauce ingredients, expecting it to be enough for 2 bags of frozen ravioli. It definitely wasn't. Tasted great with turkey pepperoni.

"Good recipe. My changes: I used a 9 ounce package of fresh cheese tortellini, and half the pepperoni, chopped the onion and it was perfect. I can't imagine using as much pasta as this recipe calls for."
