I almost didn’t post this recipe because honestly, it barely counts as a recipe. But I figured I’m probably not the only one who enjoys a delicious yet so-easy-your-kids-could-make-this kind of recipe, right? If you’re looking for an easy, one-pan meal, this ravioli lasagna is the answer.
How to Make Ravioli Lasagna
Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray, then cover the bottom with pasta sauce. Arrange the frozen ravioli in a single layer.
Top with mozzarella cheese, then repeat. Add a second layer of sauce, ravioli, and mozzarella cheese.
Then cover the pan with foil and bake for 40 minutes, covered. Remove the foil and continue to bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly.
Can you use frozen ravioli to make lasagna?
Yes! This recipe uses frozen ravioli. You don’t need to thaw or cook the ravioli before baking. I like using cheese ravioli but you can use any kind you prefer.
Can you use fresh ravioli to make lasagna?
Yes, but you’ll need to reduce the baking time of this recipe. Fresh ravioli cooks faster. Cover it and bake for 15 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 10-15 minutes uncovered until the cheese is bubbly.
What’s the best ravioli for lasagna?
I usually buy the Kroger brand cheese ravioli, but any frozen ravioli will work. While I like vegetarian ravioli lasagna, I’ve made it with Lobster ravioli for Alex, and I’ve done it with spinach ravioli to add in extra veggies. You can also do this with vegan ravioli, but you’ll also want to substitute the cheese for vegan cheese if you want to keep this dairy-free.
Can I make ravioli lasagna in advance?
Yes! You can prepare the lasagna and store it in the fridge for up to 3 days before baking. But this recipe only takes a few minutes to assemble, so I typically prepare it right before serving. Because the ravioli will thaw in the fridge, you may need to reduce the cooking time.
If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, just use gluten-free ravioli. Udi’s makes a gluten-free frozen ravioli that is available at Walmart and Target. You may need to adjust the baking time, slightly.
The Best Pasta Sauce for Ravioli Lasagna
Since this recipe is made with just a few ingredients, it’s really important to use high-quality products. I recommend Rao’s Tomato Basil sauce for this recipe. It has a lovely flavor with no added sugar or preservatives. It’s a little pricy, so feel free to use any sauce you like. But the quality of your sauce will have a big impact on the flavor of your dish!Print
