Baked Ravioli Casserole

Baked Ravioli Casserole

Baked Ravioli Casserole is simple to assemble and gets dinner into the oven, and onto the table, without much fuss.    The dish contains only 3 ingredients,  but tastes like you worked much harder at getting it onto the table.  Like my sheet pan dinners, once this dish is assembled, it goes into the oven where it bakes for about 45 minutes.  That allows you to help the kids with homework, or tend to whatever needs your attention, while dinner takes care of itself. 

Baked Ravioli CasseroleI got the idea for this recipe from a $14.99 package of “ravioli lasagna” that I saw in the closest warehouse store.  It was in section of the store that has pre-packaged food that’s prepared in the store’s kitchen.  It looked delicious, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend that much money for something that looked so simple. I’m not condemning people who buy those types of foods.  Purchasing prepared foods is definitely more cost effective than taking your family of four out to eat at an Italian restaurant.  It just wasn’t the right choice for us.

This recipe came in at under $1.00 per serving with the ingredient’s that I selected.  I used store brand ravioli to make this. The name brand Ravioli cost $4.18 for the same sized bag compared to $2.99 for the store brand.   I didn’t feel that there was that much of a taste difference between the two different brands, so I chose the least expensive.Baked Ravioli Casserole

All you need to do to have dinner on the table is layer all of the ingredients in the pan, cover it with foil, and toss it into the oven.   When the Baked Ravioli Casserole is almost ready, remove the foil, toss together a green salad, and broil some garlic bread.    It’s really that simple to get dinner on the table.

Frozen ravioli is layered in a baking pan with spaghetti sauce and shredded cheese for a simple and delicious dinner that's sure to become a family favorite. Cook's Note: I recommend using a metal baking pan for this due to placing frozen ravioli into the hot oven. Occasionally, a glass pan that contains frozen food with break in a hot oven. I'd rather be safe than sorry, so use a metal pan. Total Cost or recipe is $5.54 or about $0.93 per serving.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 9 by 13 inch metal baking pan with non stick spray.

  1. This was so easy to make, and it was delicious. The serving size is very generous. We had it with salad and garlic bread. It was amazing. I’m definitely making this again.
