Raise your hand if you have a picky eater in the house!

With many mouths to feed and limited time for cooking, it can be so difficult to come up with new and different mealtime solutions that appeal to everyone at the table. And while we want dinner to be a relaxing and fun way to reconnect with family at the end of the day, the reality is often VERY different.

When little ones join us at the dinner table, dinners can quickly become a stressful, rushed situation in which everyone leaves the table feeling frustrated, depleted, and discouraged. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Quick-prep meals like this cheesy ravioli in Alfredo sauce make home-cooked dinners a breeze. And best of all? Your kids will actually EAT it!

I included chicken and peas in the dish which means that you get a complete dinner in one pan. There’s no need to worry about sides, and there’s no need to wash more dishes when you’re done.

Instead, serve a warm, creamy pasta dish that your entire family will enjoy. And maybe even pour yourself a glass of wine while it bakes? After all, you’ll have nothing more to worry about once you pop it in the oven!

Top Tips For Making Chicken and Ravioli Alfredo

    My husband can be a picky eater at times! 🙂 Alfredo anything is a favorite of mine, so I know I would love this ravioli. And I think my husband would love it, too. Looks SO good and so easy to make!

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Gayle! Total comfort food (and so easy)!

    2. Gracie says:

      Open a jar of sauce and poor it on. That’s not a recipe.

        Stay classy!

      3. Dawn says:

        I am using my own sauce I mean you can absolutely Google how to make Alfredo sauce if you dont already know how to do so.

        I for one needed this. i had no idea how to put these ingredients together and how to cook them.

        1. The Seasoned Mom says:

          Thank you, Alizabeth! We’re glad you found it helpful.

      Thanks, Kristy!

  3. Ruby piper says:

    This recipe looks so good can’t wait to make !! Thanks

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Ruby! Enjoy!

      1. Kimberly says:

        I made 2 casserole dishes last night. Baked one from the frozen state. Delicious! Put the second casserole on the frige to serve tonight.

        Now need advice on
        how to cook the thawed casserole? At what temperature and for how long?

        1. The Seasoned Mom says:

          Hi Kimberly,
          We actually haven’t tested this one as a frozen meal, but it should work! Bake either directly from frozen (doubling the time and keeping a close eye on it). Or, let it thaw in the fridge overnight and proceed as usual. Hope that helps!

  4. Brittany says:

    Is this a freezer friendly meal?

    1. Blair says:

      Hey, Brittany! I haven’t actually tried that myself, but I imagine it would work really well as a freezer meal!

  5. Natalie says:

    Is there a reason to wait until the end to add the frozen peas? Or can I put them in at the beginning? I just wondered if they got soft enough if they are only cooking in the oven for 10 minutes? Thanks for your time!

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Natalie! You can definitely add the peas at the beginning if you prefer. They will just get darker and mushier than if you wait until the end. The frozen peas are so small that they thaw and heat through almost instantly when you add them to the hot dish. I just like our peas a bright green color and not quite as mushy, which is why I add them at the end. Either way will work great, though!

    I Will have an amazing time cooking this for my Mom it looks AMAZING! I Can eat anything Alfredo! Thank you so much. If i like it I will make it for special events! Thank you! ~M

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Marqus! I hope that you and your mom love it! 🙂

  7. Jennifer says:

    I have it in the oven now I have 1 min left before adding the peas and chesse,I’m also adding bacon.
    My children should love it.

    1. Blair says:

      That’s great, Jennifer! I hope the family enjoyed it!

  8. Ally says:

    Hi, this sounds good. A change from our usual ravioli with red sauce. Can I use fresh ravioli for this? We have a place where we usually get fresh raviolis from. Should I adjust the cooking time too?


    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Ally! Yes, you can definitely use fresh ravioli but you will need to adjust the cooking time. I’ve never tested the recipe with fresh ravioli myself, so I can’t tell you exactly how long it will take. You’ll just have to keep an eye on it. The fresh ravioli will cook much faster than the frozen ravioli, though (maybe about 20-30 minutes total)? Hope that helps, and enjoy!

  9. Kristie says:

    We loved this!!! I added fresh spinach and topped with bread crumbs for crunch. This will definitely be one of our quick go to dinners. Thanks for sharing!!!

    1. Blair says:

      Awesome, Kristie! Your changes sound delicious. Thanks for letting me know!

    2. Nancy says:

      Kristie, adding spinach and bread crumbs sounds great! When did you add the spinach? Could I just used the bagged spinach meant for salads? Now you’ve got me thinking about adding asparagus, one of my faves, this recipe lends itself to lots of tasty twists!

  10. Sam says:

    This is simple, with no surprises & that’s a plus. I like peas, but nixed them here. I also added more chicken because I have frozen shredded chicken in 1# bags. I mixed in a teaspoon of Italian seasoning & used 1.5 cups of Italian blend cheese. along with a teaspoon of my cheesy seasoning salt. I did back off on the Alfredo sauce & used two 15 oz. jars. because I thought it would be enough & didn’t want an opened jar in the fridge. I think this would fit easily into a 9X9 pan & possibly work better..

    I tried to rate this but it wouldn’t take. Still, 4 stars & from me that’s high praise!

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Sam!

  11. Gay Anderson says:

    I want to try this recipe. My 8 year old grandson lives with me and he doesn’t like peas. Do you think it would work with zucchini and should it be frozen? Thanks!

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Gay! That’s no problem — you can either just omit the peas and prepare the dish without them, or you can try subbing the zucchini instead. The zucchini will release a bit more water than the peas, which will thin the sauce some, but I still think it will work fine. Enjoy! 🙂

    Just finished making this it was easy and very good! I cut the recipe down for one using a 5×7 dish so have leftovers but not for a week. So many ways you can change it up. Thanks for posting it!

    1. Blair says:

      Awesome, Lorie!

    Boyfriend had the taste for ravioli at the last minute so like anyone, I consulted Pinterest… definitely made the right choice. One hour later and we are stuffed. Thank you!!! Will be checking out your other dump and bake dinners. *****

    1. Blair says:

      Yay! So glad that you’ve discovered the magic of the dump-and-bake recipes! 🙂

  14. Angela says:

    This looks so yummy. I make a similar recipe with chicken and broccoli. Delicious 🙂

  15. Madeleine Miller says:

    Can I use my o wn Alfredo sauce? Would I need to adjust bake.

    1. Blair says:

      Absolutely! You shouldn’t need to make any adjustments to the baking time. 🙂

  16. Uceta Patterson says:

    I have Bocconcini mozzarella cheese. Should I add it before the 30 minute bake or after?

    1. Blair says:

      Hi, Uceta! I think that 10 minutes at the end should be long enough to melt the cheese. If it doesn’t melt quickly enough or get brown enough for your liking, you can always pop the dish under the broiler at the end for a minute or two to get the top just how you like it. Enjoy!

  17. Julie says:

    Just found recipe will be trying it and other dump dinners soon. Thanks,

    1. Blair says:

      Perfect! Enjoy, Julie — there are many others to choose from as well. 🙂

    I have made this recipe and it’s great. I substituted broccoli for the peas and it was fantastic and quick.

    1. Blair says:

      Thanks, Marc!

  19. Brandy says:

    I don’t like peas, but thought fresh mushrooms would be a good add-in. Do you think I can add them in the beginning & let them cook with the rest, or should I sauté them or something first & add in later?

    1. Blair Lonergan says:

      Hi, Brandy! Yes, you can just add them in raw at the beginning and let them soften and cook in the oven with everything else. Enjoy!

    I’m just wondering should i blanch the ravioli 1 min in boiling water do the ravioli taste gummy if just put in frozen

    1. Blair Lonergan says:

      Hi, Nancy! I don’t think that you need to blanch them first. I haven’t found them to be gummy. Just don’t leave them to bake too long in the oven — that’s when pasta gets mushy.

    This recipe is a keeper! I love the “Dump and Bake” method. When I’m not able to spend much time in the kitchen these dishes are very versatile & ideal. I made this recipe as it is written the first time, which was delicious! The second time I added sliced mushrooms & a squeeze or two of lemon juice. The lemon juice brightens up the dish & pairs well with the chicken. Years ago I had lemon Alfredo Penne & loved it so much that I use it in most of the Alfredo recipes depending on the ingredients used. The third time I ran out of chicken & made it with beef ravioli. Also, the spinach & cheese-filled ravioli was great.

    1. The Seasoned Mom says:

      Yum! Thank you for the feedback, Timothy! We’re so glad you enjoyed the recipe. The “dump and bake” method is truly a lifesaver on busy nights!
