Ravioli Casserole

This dish takes little time to prepare, but needs around 45" to bake. It's also a good candidate for the freezer. I like to make this when I am already making ravioli or pasta for dinner. I simply boil the ravioli in the already hot water left from the first pasta. The rest then goes together in a flash.

Use whatever kind of ravioli you like; cheese, meat, or mushroom all work well. You can halve the recipe, if desired, but it freezes so nicely that you may as well make it all up.

Ingredients:

  • 24 oz frozen ravioli, cooked and drained
  • 32 oz jar of spaghetti sauce
  • 24 oz ricotta, or small curd cottage cheese
  • 16 oz mozzarella, grated or thinly sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup parmesan, divided
  • 1 Tbls dried oregano
  • 3 Tbls dried parsley

Instructions:
  • This can be made in a lasagna pan, two 9" square or round pans, or a 4 quart casserole.
  • Spray your choice with a nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a separate bowl break up the two eggs, then mix in the ricotta, cup of the parmesan, oregano, and parsley.
  • To the prepared pan, add enough sauce to just cover the bottom.
  • Add a layer of ravioli, a layer of ricotta mixture, a layer of mozzarella, then more sauce.
  • Repeat layering in this manner at least 2 or 3 times, depending on what pans you've chosen and how thick you make your layers.
  • End with a layer of mozzarella.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35" - 45" - just until warmed through and browned on top.
