Description

Excuse me, did someone say ravioli lasagna?! YES, it’s a thing, and it is just as heavenly as it sounds! This is like all your childhood dreams coming true: cheese, pasta, layered goodness. You’ll love how easy and fun it is!


Ingredients

  •  2 24-ounce jars marinara pasta sauce
  •  2 30-ounce bags frozen cheese ravioli
  •  1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  •  1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  •  1/3 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped (optional garnish)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Spread half of a jar of marinara sauce evenly across the bottom of the prepared baking dish. 
  3. Add 1 package of ravioli in an even layer over the sauce. 
  4. Add the second half of the jar of marinara.
  5. Add the second bag of ravioli in an even layer over the sauce.
  6. Add a full jar of marinara over the ravioli.
  7. Top with Parmesan cheese and then sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese.
  8. Spray a piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, sprayed side down (so that the cheese doesn’t stick to the foil). 
  9. Bake the lasagna for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbly. 
  10. Remove pan from oven let sit for 5 minutes. 
  11. Garnish with basil, if desired. Serve warm.

Notes

  • You don’t have to thaw or cook the ravioli first; just put it in the pan frozen.
  • You can use your favorite ravioli here. There’s a great 4-cheese and a spinach cheese ravioli that I like, and all of them are great in this recipe. 
  • I’m pretty picky about my jarred marinara sauce, and Rao’s Homemade (though pricier) is my favorite. I try to stock up when I see it on sale.
