WHAT IS BAKED RAVIOLI?
If you’ve never had baked ravioli before, you are missing out! It is a deliciously layered dish involving ravioli, cheese, and sauce. It can be referenced as lasagna with ravioli instead of lasagna noodles.
BAKED RAVIOLI INGREDIENTS
- SPAGHETTI SAUCE: Pick your favorite jarred sauce or you can make your own.
- FROZEN RAVIOLI: I mean.. it is baked ravioli, right? It wouldn’t work without it!
- GROUND BEEF: Browned and crumbled, this goes perfect with ravioli.
- CHEESE: We used mozzarella and parmesan cheese for this recipe.
HOW TO MAKE BAKED RAVIOLI
- PREPARE: Preheat the oven to 400F and spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- COOK MEAT: Brown the ground beef until fully cooked and then drain.
- ASSEMBLE: Layer the sauce, ravioli, ground beef, mozzarella, and parmesan in that order. Repeat until filled to the top.
- BAKE AND SERVE: Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 15 more minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and starts to brown. Serve with garlic bread and enjoy!
CAN YOU BAKE FROZEN RAVIOLI?
You sure can! It is completely fine to do and the ravioli will bake through as long as it is cooked long enough. For this recipe, make sure the ravioli is frozen or you will need to decrease the cooking time.
WHAT DO YOU SERVE WITH BAKED RAVIOLI?
Our favorite is garlic bread! You can also serve it with roasted veggies, salad, and so many other foods. You could even try some bacon-wrapped asparagus if that’s something you enjoy.
CAN YOU FREEZE BAKED RAVIOLI?
You sure can! For best results, pack it in an airtight container or freezer bags. You can freeze this recipe for 1-2 months.
