Oven Baked Breaded Ravioli w/ Semi-Homemade Marinara Sauce

So a few years ago I tried fried ravioli for the first time and fell completely in love.  There was only one little problem though--it was fried.  I can't feel okay about myself eating fried ravioli!  Therefore, after a little research, I realized that there is a better way to make your ravioli even better.  Oven bake it!

Here is my recipe for Oven Baked Breaded Ravioli and Semi-Homemade Marinara Sauce:

Ingredients for Ravioli:
1 bag ravioli (spinach or regular cheese--I used spinach and cheese)
3/4 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp butter
Salt and pepper to taste 
Recipe for Ravioli:
1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2.  Boil a pot of water for the ravioli
3.  When water begins to boil, pour the frozen ravioli into the pot and boil them for 2 minutes
4.  After 2 minutes, drain the ravioli and let the 1/4 tsp of butter melt on them to avoid sticking
5.  Crack the two eggs into a bowl and beat lightly
6.  Combine the bread crumbs and cheese in a separate bowl
7.  Cover each ravioli with the egg and then with the bread crumb mixture
8.  Place each breaded ravioli on a metal rack which is placed on top of a baking sheet covered in foil
9.  Bake for approximately 15-18 minutes
10.  Serve with marinara sauce!

Ingredients for Marinara Sauce:
1 Can Hunts Tomato Sauce
Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Minced garlic
1 Bay leaf
Basil to taste (1/2-1 tsp)
Oregano to taste (1 tsp-1 1/2 tsp)

Recipe for Semi-Homemade Marinara Sauce:
1.  Sautee minced garlic in olive oil
2.  Pour tomato sauce in with the olive oil and garlic
3 . Add bay leaf (crumpled up), basil, and oregano
4.  Let simmer for 10-15 minutes
5.  Enjoy!
