I ....LOVE.... it when I can open cans, toss them together, heat it up and eat it!! My favorite kind of cooking! LOL!

This sounds really good and we are planning on cooking frozen raviolis tonight. Maybe I'll go buy the ingredients and try it on that. What do you think?

Looks like a good busy family recipe. I wonder how it would taste with a jar of salsa added in near the end of the simmering, instead of tomatoes and green chiles. I have also prepared all kinds of dishes, from short to involved, and find the quicker ones to be best for now. As my son grows older and can concentrate for longer, we may move up the cooking scale.
If you want to assuage your desire for effort on this recipe, use home made pasta - lots of fun to make with little ones, and very tasty. I bet it would be good on just about any pasta.

Yes, you could use salsa. I have put it over store bought fresh pasta, home made pasta, and the dry rotelle (the curly, heavier pasta). It's good with any. My home made is so delicate that I have to cut back on the ratio of sauce to pasta and can't just mix it all together. But if you plate the pasta first and just perch a dollop of sauce on top, it works.

For those who don't want heat in their sauce, a plain can of diced tomatoes in their own juices can be substituted for the spicey Rotel.

It will work fine over the ravioli too. And, did I mention it freezes well?

My kind of cooking too, though sometimes I do enjoy making from scratch.
