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.
Ingredients
  • 1 bag (25 ounce) of frozen beef ravioli ($2.99)
  • 1 can (24 ounces) spaghetti sauce ($0.88)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a 9 by 13 inch metal baking pan with non stick spray.
  3. Spread 1 cup of the spaghetti sauce over the bottom of the pan.
  4. Pour frozen ravioli into the pan and spread them evenly.
  5. Pour the remaining spaghetti sauce over the ravioli trying to evenly distribute it on top of the ravioli.
  6. Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over top of the pan.

  8. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes
