How to Make Baked Ravioli, High Altitude Version

D took his soccer team to a local college game last week.  Since his two assistant coaches live out of town and he asked them to stay in town to go to the game, he invited them over for supper before the game.  Zeke helped me make baked ravioli for the occasion..  For some reason, watching him help from his lofty perch on our dining room table bench made me chuckle.

It's really a super easy recipe, that is really yummy.  I don't do a ton of premade food items but this is one recipe that uses processed and convenience items that I really like.

Bring a pot of water to boil.  Add 16 ounces of frozen ravioli and cook a few minutes, until the ravioli start to float.  While you are doing that, make the sauce by combining 2 cups of spaghetti sauce with 1/3 cup cream cheese in a saucepan.  Cook on the stovetop until the cream cheese is melted throughout the sauce.  Drain ravioli and place into a greased casserole dish or an 8 x 8 pan.  Top with sauce.  (You can add mozerella, parmesan, or another Italian cheese on top too.)  Bake for 20 minutes or so at 350.   An 8 x 8 pan would not feed us at all so this is also easily doubled.  (From DamnDelicious.)
And if nothing else, make it standing really high up, just so you can say you did.
