Baked Ravioli

This is one of our favorite meals. SO GOOD!
(and yes, you're right.....this is not a picture i took. my camera is not functioning correctly right now, so i have to go online and find pictures that look similar to what i make. is that cheating?). I know, cheap.

the goods:

2 T. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 1/2 tsp. dried thyme, or oregano
1 (28 oz) can whole tomatoes
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
2 pounds store-bought ravioli
1 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and season with salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add thyme and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, breaking up tomatoes with a spoon, until sauce is thickened and reduced, 20-25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook ravioli in a large pot of boiling water, just until they float to the top (pasta will continue to cook in the oven). Drain pasta; return to pot.
  3. Toss sauce with pasta. Pour pasta in to a 9x13 baking dish, and sprinkle with cheeses. Bake until golden, 20-25 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.
