Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. 

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef and garlic; cook 8–10 minutes, breaking into crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings if needed.

Stir in salt, nutmeg and pepper; mix well. Stir in pasta sauce and water; bring to a boil. Cook 1–2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Coat a 13" x 9" glass baking dish with cooking spray. Layer half the ravioli, half the beef mixture and half the cheese. Repeat with remaining ravioli, beef mixture and cheese; cover with aluminum foil. Bake 15 minutes (20 minutes if using frozen ravioli). Uncover; continue baking until sauce is bubbly and pasta is tender, 15–20 minutes.

Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
