Who isn’t looking for ways to make dinner time easier?  I love recipes that are simple and easy. Makes life so much better!

This ravioli lasagna is cheesy, saucy, and just downright tasty. It’s a yummy twist on traditional lasagna.

 

 

There is minimal prep for this recipe. The ravioli goes into the dish frozen, so there’s no need to thaw it beforehand. You can even prep the ground beef mixture ahead of time to speed things along.

Most of the time is baking time, which is hands-off. It makes this recipe simple to put together and then you can walk away and do whatever else you need to do while it bakes.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 medium onion, chopped

 salt, and black pepper, to taste

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 (32-oz.) jar marinara

16 oz. whole milk ricotta
1 large egg
1 c. freshly grated Parmesan, divided
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 (12-oz.) packages frozen cheese ravioli
2 c. shredded mozzarella
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

DIRECTIONS

 
  1. Preheat oven to 350º and grease a 9”-x-13” baking dish with cooking spray. Warm a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat and add ground beef and onion. Season with salt and pepper and cook until beef is browned and onion is soft, about 10 minutes, then drain fat and return to skillet. Stir in garlic and marinara, then reduce heat and simmer for flavors to marry, 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add ricotta, egg, 1/4 cup Parmesan, garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. 
  3. Spread 1/3 of the meat sauce into the prepared pan. Top with a single layer of ravioli, half of the remaining meat sauce, half of the ricotta mixture, and half of the mozzarella and remaining Parmesan. Repeat layers, ending on cheeses. 
  4. Cover pan loosely with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake until golden and bubbly, 15 minutes more.
