Ravioli Lasagna – Video

Layers of Ravioli with Spinach Ricotta Mixture with Pasta Sauce

Ravioli Lasagna was always one of my go to weekday meals when the kids would have their after school sports or events.  It was always one of those dishes that I knew my family loved and could be prepped ahead and on the table in just thirty minutes.

I’ve been blogging since 2009 and since that time most of what I share now uses all fresh ingredients.  However, sometimes using bottled sauces, frozen products, and packaged fresh grated cheese is okay.  Know your source and always read the packaging before purchasing.  This insures that the product purchased meets your standards.

If you’re at all a fan of Italian dishes, pasta, or lasagna then you’ll want to try this recipe for your family.

Creating this dish can easily be achieved all at once.  It simply takes tossing the ravioli into a pot of boiling water for the time specified on the package, and draining it.  During that time mix the spinach ricotta filling together, and have your sauce ready and waiting.

Feel free to use your own homemade pasta sauce, but typically I use the jarred. Since this is a recipe I make when time is of the essence, why would I make homemade sauce, unless I already have it on hand?

I think you’ll agree that Ravioli Lasagna will become a recipe you’ll continue making time and time again.

  1. Have never had a lasagna made with ravioli…totally love the idea and it surely looks very delicious and satisfying, Vicki.

    • It’s a fun way to make it and certainly takes a lot less time. If you don’t like beef ravioli, use mushroom stuffed, butternut squash or whatever other kind suits you. If you try it let me know what you think.

  2. I love this shortcut, Vicki! Pasta dishes are one thing that Katie will eat—so this needs to happen at our house! Have a great weekend!!! xo

  3. I love everything about this ravioli lasagne! Yum, I think I’ll make this for Sunday dinner. My kids will eat this meal up! 🙂
