Rav'n Ravioli

Adapted from Pampered Chef and found on Supper Swappers.

1 medium green bell pepper
1/2 C onion, chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 jar (26-28 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1 1/4 C water
12 French bread baguette slices
1/4 C butter, melted
1 C mozzarella cheese
1/4 C fresh grated Parmesan cheese
18 ounces refrigerated ravioli (* I used frozen)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Chop bell pepper and onion. Heat olive oil
over medium-high heat; add pepper, onion, and garlic. Cook 2-3 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in spaghetti sauce, ravioli and water. Bring to a boil.
Spoon half of the ravioli mixture into 9 inch pie plate or similar sized baking dish. Top with mozzarella cheese and remaining ravioli mixture.

Thaw ravioli mixture.
Bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile, melt butter and add bread slices, tossing to coat evenly.
After 20 minutes of baking, arrange bread slices around edge of baking dish, pressed slightly into ravioli mixture. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over bread and ravioli mixture. Bake 15-20 minutes or until ravioli is heated through and bread is crisp and deep golden brown.

Serves: 6
