Baked Ravioli Casserole

Looking for some easy pasta recipes?

Get set for the ultimate comfort food with this baked ravioli casserole!  

Easy pasta recipes are great for family dinners and easy entertaining.  Layers of frozen ravioli make this lasagna-style recipe easy and delicious.  You can assemble this in less than 5 minutes and it takes about 30 minutes to bake.  This recipe meets all of the Make Life Special requirements — it is quick to make, it has only a few ingredients that are readily available, and it is yummy!  Casseroles are typically made with meat,vegetables, cheese and a sauce.  This casserole can be made without meat – as I have done here using the cheese ravioli; or you can substitute beef filled frozen ravioli if you prefer to add the meat.

I love this recipe because you can make it ahead of time and either freeze or refrigerate the ravioli casserole until you are ready to bake it.

Don’t omit the spinach…trust me on this one.  It really adds great flavor to this dish and it’s a great way to get your family to eat vegetables.  Remember…Let’s make life special by sharing great food with our family and friends!  Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9 X 13 baking dish with cooking spray and spoon 1/3 of the sauce in the dish.  Arrange a layer of frozen ravioli on top of the sauce.

Squeeze the liquid out of the thawed spinach.  Scatter all of the spinach over the ravioli layer.

Top with half of each cheese.

Cover with another layer of ravioli and the remaining sauce and cheese.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake 25 minutes.

Uncover and bake 5 to 10 minutes more or until bubbly.

Just add a salad and some garlic bread and you have a great family meal!

  10. Can I use fresh ravioli instead of frozen? Our favorite ravioli is the ones at Costco. We don’t like frozen ravioli.

    • Hi Kim. Yes, the fresh ravioli will work just as well. I would reduce the baking time by about 10 minutes since the ravioli is fresh and not frozen. It will be wonderful!

  12. I’ve made this several times. It is really yummy & easy too!

  13. I’ve been making this for a long time, only I don’t do spinach, none of my family like it unless it’s whole leaf and in a salad and then my kids will devour it (I still don’t like it lol) I use both the Beef and a 3 cheese of the Frozen Ravioli (I get mine at walmart) and then what ever cheese I have available – normally it’s Taco shredded cheese – we use that for almost everything sometimes I bake it , sometimes I just do it all on the stove top in a pot. If I do it in a pot, I just boil the ravioli until they’re done , drain , add back to pot and add the sauce and cheese, let it cook a few more minutes until it’s all hot and mixed well. My family loves this! and it’s a Great filling meal for when you have to pinch pennies

  14. Can I use frozen beef ravioli???

  15. Miranda Davey says:

    How long would you cook this for if I froze the entire Casserole? I don’t want to over do the ravioli!

  16. Anthony says:

    We have a large party where we will be making 3 large pans. Can you make it ahead of time and put it in the refrigerator to cook the next day? We are worried that when the ravioli defrosts in the fridge it will become watery!
