Veggie-Tastic Ravioli ***

We all really liked this.  It was inspired by a recipe that someone posted onto BBC from Taste of Home.  I redid it to make it work for us, and because it became something completely different, I gave it a new name.  The kids ate all their veggies, which just blew my mind.  I personally loved the veggies with the spaghetti sauce.  We will be making this very often.

25 oz frozen cheese or beef ravioli
¼ cup olive oil
1/4 tsp minced garlic
16 oz frozen mixed vegetables (I prefer zucchini, corn, etc.)
¼ cup chicken broth
28 oz spaghetti sauce
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese
Cook ravioli according to package directions.  Drain when fully cooked, and return to pot.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook garlic in oil for 1 minute (if garlic is dried, heat only briefly, so as not to brown).
Add frozen veggies; cook for 4 minutes.  Add chicken broth; cook for 3 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper, and spaghetti sauce; cook for 1 minute.  Mix into ravioli and sprinkle liberally with Parmesan cheese.  Serve while hot for best results.
