Ravioli Lasagna from Canned Beef Ravioli

Making Ravioli Lasagna from canned ravioli seemed like a good idea, and the final product tasted good. Unfortunately, the servings didn’t look like I wanted them to. In spite of this, my family devoured this Ravioli Lasagna even though it was made from canned ravioli.

Occasionally, my children would come home from school with a food request. Once, one of their friends had told them how delicious Hamburger Helper was, and my children had never eaten it. It wasn’t that I’ve never made hamburger helper. It was just that I hadn’t made it in a very long time. I indulged my children and bought hamburger helper for them to try. They got to choose which one.

The canned ravioli in my pantry had similar origins. It was sitting there, taunting me. My children didn’t seem to be interested in eating it, and it was taking up valuable cabinet space. I decided to create a meal using the canned ravioli. Inspired by my recipe for baked ravioli casserole and my ravioli lasagna recipe, I decided to try to turn three cans of ravioli into a ravioli lasagna that could feed five with leftovers for at least two lunches for the next day.

  • Canned Ravioli

Preparation is simple. The first thing that must be done is to mix up the cottage cheese layer.

Then, pour 1 1/2 cans of ravioli into the bottom of a baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. I used a 9×9 casserole dish.

Top the ravioli layer with all of the cheese layer, pressing it out to reach all of the edges.

Next, arrange the remaining ravioli and sauce on top of the cheese layer. (If this picture looks familiar, it’s because I forgot to take a picture of this step, so I used the other photo twice. Please, don’t tell anyone.)

Finally, top the ravioli with more cheese.

Place it in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown. The casserole should be bubbling at this time.

Allow to set for 5 to 10 minutes to firm up a bit, then serve.

This goes great with garlic bread and a salad.

  1. Ok, so I have a similar story to tell.
    I grew up on things like hamburger helper and canned ravioli, but as an adult, I hate them so much that I just don’t buy them for the kids. I wanted to make sure I allowed them to have a “more mature” palate, and not be so picky. Unfortunately, I’m not big on cooking. When I do cook, I try to use fresh ingredients, but again, I don’t cook often.
    Enter hubby. When he shops, he’s ALL ABOUT convenience foods. He doesn’t like hamburger helper either though, so we just never made it, until one day my kids seen it in the store and wondered what it was. I also allowed them to pick their flavor and we made it and they enjoyed it. Hubby and I tolerated it.
    Anyway. When hubby shops we end up with canned food like chef boyardee and then we only eat it in times of desperation. It’s been a long while since we’ve eaten canned ravioli but there are a couple cans in the pantry waiting to be used.
    When I begin to find multiple objects that “just need to be used up”, I put my kids on the challenge. I tell them each to pick one ingredient from respective places (fridge, freezer, and pantry) and then it’s my job to try to make something with the ingredients. Almost like the show “Chopped Challenge” if you’ve ever seen that.
    Anyway, that’s where I’m at right now, and here are the ingredients my kids picked.
    Freezer-Frozen chicken Patties
    Pantry-Canned Beef Ravioli.
    What’s a mom that doesn’t cook much to do with these ingredient, but hit Pinterest! Here I am, and thank you soo much for posting this recipe.
    We’ll be having it on our “Italian themed chopped challenge dinner” that will consist of this, chicken Parmesan made with frozen chicken Patties and a green salad! Phew! Lol!
