Ravioli Lasagna

The recipe is from a magazine that I've been reading for a few years now, Chatelaine. It is nice,monthly magazine that have different interesting sections like: Style, fashion and beauty, Home and decor, Health, Life, book club and travel.

I did my own modifications to it. I will post the original recipe and write my owns in another color. so you could choose what you try based on your own taste.
so let's get down to the cooking.

Ingredients ( for 8 serving):
Extra Virgin Olive oil: 1 tsp
Onion ( medium size): 1, diced
Garlic cloves: 2, minced
Italian sausage: 500 gr ; I used 200 gr hashed beef
Chili powder : 1tsp
Crushed tomato: 1 big can
Dried oregano leaves: 1 tsp
35% cooking cream: 1/4 cup
Milk: 1/4 cup
Mushrooms (sliced): 1cup
Fresh Ravioli: 700 g ( preferably get the ones with spinach and cheese)
Mozzarella cheese, grated : 1 cup
Green bell pepper: 1, sliced

Preheat the oven to 350F. heat a large pot over medium. add oil, then onion and garlic. cook for few minutes till they get soft. add the meat ( or sausage). fry them little bit or till they are not pinkish anymore. add chili powder, stirring often for about 5 minutes. add tomatoes and oregano and sliced bell pepper.stir in cream and mil until well combined.

add mushrooms and raviolis to the pot. mix till all of them are coated with the sauce. 
In a cooking pan, pour the ravioli and press down to even out and cover it with sauce. then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the center of the oven, uncovered, until ravioli are cooked and cheese melted, about 20 min. when it is ready , take out form the oven and let it cool down for about 15 minutes.

In the magazine, at the end the calories and other stuff are mentioned. I don't count calories but in case you are; here they are :546 calories, 24 g protein, 48 g carbs, 30 g fat, 4 g fiber, 771 mg soium and it is an excellent source of iron.  

We ate it about an hour after it was out of the oven and let me tell you this: it was super yummmmmy and delicious.I did not actually expected to be this good. so I highly recommend this one, enjoy.  Till next time!
