Reviews for Sausage Ravioli Lasagna
"I used 2lbs of sausage, and 2, 24oz jars of spaghetti sauce. This was very good and I will make it again!"
"This was very easily put together and tasted great!"
"add garlic and onions when cooking meat"
"Family really liked this. I used turkey Italian sausage."
"This recipe was good the first time but didn't have as much meat as my family likes so the second time I added some kielbasa and it made all the difference, even improved the flavor!"
"Thought this was a pretty good recipe. Pretty standard, seen it done before. I felt this recipe was appealing since it was nice and simple. Would make again if I wasn't feeling like plain ol spaghetti!"
"Loaded with calories, but a great indulgence. Usually my husband rates my new cooking endeavors as "Eh, it's ok." But this one got two thumbs up and "keeper" status."
"This was a nice alternative to lasagna. Came together quickly on a week night."
