Ravioli Lasagna

Easy, cheesy Baked Ravioli Lasagna Casserole Recipe. Serve up this comfort food for a quick, delicious weeknight dinner!

Sometimes life calls for a dinner shortcut. Maybe you have it all together, and don’t need shortcuts.

Maybe not.

You may be a little like me and find yourself staring in the refrigerator at 5 pm wondering, “what’s for dinner.”

I find myself wanting spaghetti or chicken alfredo when life is crazy and I need a quick dinner. But, what I REALLY want is lasagna.

Cheesy, spinach and meat lasasgna. But even when made in the Instant Pot (like list quick lasagna recipe), there still isn’t enough time in the evening…

Enter: easy, cheesy Ravioli Lasagna. Otherwise known as shortcut lasagna in our house!

Ravioli Lasagna

Why ravioli lasagna you may ask?

Simple. All the comfort food, with much less work. Plus, you can change up the flavor by using different noodles and sauce.

  • Cheese ravioli
  • Spinach ravioli
  • Artichoke ravioli
  • Alfredo sauce
  • Vodka sauce

What you’ll need for Ravioli Lasagna

Today’s recipe can be made with or without the ricotta filling.

Want to keep it simple? You can made this ravioli lasagna by layering 4 ingredients:

  • Marinara sauce (with meat in it)
  • Frozen Lasagna
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese

Or, follow my recipe below by making it a little closer to the classic, with about an extra 5 minute step of mixing the ricotta cheese with an egg, parmesan, parsley, garlic, and onion powder.

I also cooked up some ground beef and Italian sausage to make it even more flavorful.

How to Make Ravioli Lasagna Casserole

STEP 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13×9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

STEP 2. Brown the ground beef and ground Italian sausage until browned, crumbling it as it cooks. Drain the grease from the pan. Add the marinara sauce 

PRO TIP: Using the bulk Italian sausage WITH the ground beef adds a more authentic lasagna flavor. You can use just ground beef if you prefer.

STEP 3. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, egg, parmesan cheese, parlsey, garlic, and onion powder.

STEP 4. Assemble the casserole.

  • Spoon 1/3 of meat sauce in bottom of casserole dish
  • Top with a single layer of frozen ravioli
  • Spread 1/2 of the ricotta mixture over ravioli
  • Repeat sauce, ravioli, and ricotta
  • Finish with remaining sauce
  • Top with shredded mozzarella

STEP 5. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Let sit for about 5-10 minutes for serving.

Can you cook Ravioli Lasagna in the Crock Pot

Yes!

First, cook the ground beef and sausage in a skillet until browned. Drain and mix with marinara sauce.

In a slow cooker ladle half of the sauce into the bottom of a slow cooker. Top with half of frozen ravioli and half of the ricotta mixture. Repeat layers. Top with mozzarella cheese, cover and cook on high for 3 hours.

Serve and enjoy.

  1. In the section “what you’ll need” it says frozen lasagna. Should that be frozen ravioli (what’s listed in ingredients)?  What a great idea for an easy lasagna!
