I got the idea from one of my husband's friends, but I decided to change it up and make it my own recipe. I found it was easier to make than a traditional lasagna, but still had all of the same flavors. I have to feed 8 people, so I make mine in a huge roasting pan and they always devour it! I scaled down the recipe to make it more managable for the average family. It's very easy to make and definitely filling. Great for company with some garlic bread, a nice salad and of course, a bottle of red wine :)

How to Make Ravioli Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Add frozen raviolis and 2 tbsp. of olive oil to boiling water. Remove ravioli after about 8 minutes. They should be cooked, but still slightly firm.
  2. While ravioli are cooking, heat up the other 2 tbsp. of olive oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Add in the onions and garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes until the onions start to get soft. Stir in ground beef and cook until brown.
  3. Drain ground beef and return to pan. Stir in 2 cups of pasta sauce and simmer on low for 10 minutes.
  4. Pour 1 cup of sauce into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Then start assembling the lasagna.
  5. Start with 1 layer of ravioli (about a dozen). Then add half of the beef mixture. Then sprinkle 1 cup of mozzarella and 1/2 cup parmesan.
  6. Repeat step 5 (ravioli, then meat, then cheeses). Then add a final layer of ravioli to the top. Pour on 1 cup of left over sauce and the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until cheese begins to bubble. Remove from oven and let set for about 20 minutes. Cut into 8 squares and serve.
