Ingredients

  • 24 oz. package frozen cheese ravioli
  • 23 oz. (or about 2.5 cups) marinara sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Spray a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish (or two 8-inch dishes) with cooking spray.
  • Pour a very thin layer of marinara sauce into the prepared baking dish to cover bottom (about ½ cup).
  • Arrange half of the frozen ravioli in a single layer over the sauce.
  • Top with half of the remaining marinara sauce and half of the mozzarella cheese.
  • Repeat layers once, starting with ravioli. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake, uncovered, for 20-25 more minutes or until bubbly and hot in center. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • Add spinach for some extra veggies in the dish.
  • Instead of the vegetarian ravioli casserole, appeal to meat-lovers with some browned Italian sausage or ground beef in the sauce.
  • If you're serving a smaller family (or cooking just for 2), cut all of the ingredients in half and prepare the casserole in an 8-inch square pan. The rest of the cooking instructions remain the same, although you may be able to shorten the total baking time by a few minutes.
  • Prepare two smaller casseroles in 8-inch square pans. Bake one now, and freeze the second for a later meal!
  • Store leftover casserole in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
