Tempt My Tummy Tuesday… Spinach Ravioli Lasagna

by Lisa on July 18, 2011

 

This week I am sharing a fast and easy way to serve Italian to the family.  By using frozen ravioli, spaghetti sauce, and cheese, you can have a tasty and simple lasagna.   I recently purchased a large bag of frozen spinach and mozzarella ravioli from our local Costo.  I also had a bag of Sargento Bistro Blend Italian Pasta Cheese – with Authentic Italian Herbs (made with natural low moisture part -skim mozzarella, aged provolone and Parmesan cheese).  I had previously bought the bag of cheese knowing I wanted to make something “Italian” but did not know what.  So, after a little thinking, I decided to combine and layer the ingredients for a “lasagna” dish.  It was GREAT!  My parents had just arrived from Texas and this was our first meal together.  It was a nice meal to share with family and a hit with everyone.

Spinach Ravioli Lasagna

Ingredients:

  • spinach and mozzarella frozen ravioli (You can use cheese filled, beef filled, spinach filled, etc. Any variety works.)
  • 8 oz Italian blend shredded cheese (I used Sargento Bistro Blends Italian Pasta Cheese with Italian Herbs.)
  • 1 jar of spaghetti sauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven 350.  Spray cooking spray in a glass 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Pour a thin layer of spaghetti sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. Next, layer with frozen ravioli – use enough to cover the baking dish.  (No need to cook ravioli first.  Just layer with the ravioli still frozen.)
  4. Pour a spaghetti sauce over ravioli.  Be generous with your sauce, but leave some to cover the next layer.
  5. Sprinkle your Italian cheese blend over the sauce.  If you do not have a cheese with Italian herbs, then use some Italian seasonings here, to add flavor.
  6. Put another layer of ravioli over the cheese.
  7. Layer with remaining spaghetti sauce.
  8. Finish with a final layer of shredded cheese.  Again, if you want, sprinkle some extra Italian seasonings on top for added flavor.
  9. Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes.

I served the ravioli lasagna with a large salad and garlic bread.  It was a winning dinner.

Yum! That’s a great idea to make lasagne this way. I am absolutely stealing it, AND I bet I can get Mister Man to start to like ravioli this way since he already likes my lasagne but won’t touch ravioli. Weird kid, I know.
