Baked Ravioli 'Lasagna'

If you need a quick meal that screams comfort food, this is for you. I had some frozen ravioli in my freezer and I always have some jarred sauce and cheese, so I decided to throw this together.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lets get started.

I used basic frozen cheese raviolis.

You also need some pasta sauce, Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.

Lay down a layer of the ravioli, don't even worry about cooking it! Spoon some of the sauce over it. Sprinkle the cheese over it and add another layer of ravioli, then sauce, then more cheese.

Once you have your layers, its ready to go in the oven. I am using some of my totally cute vintage Pyrex casserole dishes. Bake if for about 30 minutes or until the cheese is nice and golden.

Let it cool for about 5 minutes and then serve it up!

This was so good, so easy and so fast. Sure its not as great as traditional lasagna, but its a nice baked pasta substitute when you are in a hurry.

  7. we can buy fresh ravioli here in the fresh counter, (probably you can too!), this recipe interested me because it was so simple and yet looked tasty.

    By the way, your cute vintage pyrex dishes are still being sold here in the shops in the UK!

    I love them!

    We have something here called Arcopal which is just as Kitsch, we stayed at a cottage once, and the whole dinner service was kinda a cross between Pyrex and Arcopal.

    Heaven! Sorry I live a kinda sad life! ;)0))))))))))))))) but happy in my own way.........
