Are you looking for an easy baked pasta recipe?  Everyone in my family loves this Goulash.  My Mom cooked Goulash a lot when I was growing up but she never baked it.  She always just made it on top of the stove and it was really good.  But I ramped up the recipe and then added the baking time to really take this easy family pasta dish over the top!  The recipe only has 5 ingredients.  I always say that if you can boil water, you can cook this dish!

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!

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