C/O MofC. For my test version I replaced the Italian pork sausage with one third of a pound of pancetta. I used a variety of good quality fresh grated or crumbled cheese: fontina, parmesan, asiago, and a little bit of gorgonzola. If you want this recipe vegetarian, you can either skip the meat entirely or use your favorite meat substitute. Lastly, since I was using a four-cheese ravioli the amount of cheese was reduced by about half cup, too.

How to Make Baked Ravioli Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large pot, boil salted water and cook ravioli according to package directions, until pillowy and floating. Drain and toss gently with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking. Set aside.
  • 2In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté onion and sausage/pancetta/vegetarian meat sub, breaking into small pieces, cooking approx. 5 min (until pork is no longer pink or pancetta is cooked.) Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Deglaze pan with wine, if using, and reduce liquid approximately; 2 minutes. Add marinara sauce, cook until simmering, and remove from heat.
  • 3Stir in ricotta or cottage cheese, cheese (reserve the other 3/4 cup cheese for melting on top). Add black pepper to taste. Spread 1/3 of the sauce mixture on bottom of 2 quart baking dish. Place an even, single layer of ravioli over sauce. Add another 1/3 of the cheese-sauce mixture over ravioli. Repeat with layers of ravioli and sauce until all is added to pan, finishing with a thin layer of sauce over ravioli. Top with reserved cheese.
  • 4Lightly oil parchment paper and place over pan, then cover completely with foil. Bake until bubbling and hot in center, approx. 30 min. Uncover and bake until browned slightly, 5 min. Serve hot, garnished with fresh parsley or basil and serve with a simple tossed green salad.
