Baked Ravioli

Sorry, I've been a little remiss in my postings this week.

I've been under the weather.  Every time I travel in an airplane I seem to catch some bug.   A nasty cold is not my idea of fun.  Maybe I should travel with a gas mask!

So this post is going to be short and sweet.  Like this dish.  Need dinner fast?  Want some comfort food?  This fits the bill and will tantalize your taste buds, and satisfy your tummy.  Kids love this one too!  To make this go quicker I suggest using fresh pasta you can buy in the refrigerator case at the grocery store.  Frozen will work to if you like.

Baked Ravioli lends a homely comfort feeling and is great with the addition of a side salad for a complete meal.  Add a little crusty bread and you are good to go.   Dinner is on.!

2 9 oz. pkg. fresh cheese ravioli

Cook ravioli in a large pot of boiling water, as per package instructions.  
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine the marinara sauce, garlic, and basil.  Pour over the ravioli and stir to coat.
