  • I was one of six soccer moms who were to make a lasagna dinner for our high school soccer team (40 girls). I did not want to take the time to make my regular lasagna recipe, so I decided to do an internet search and see what I could find. I came upon this recipe and decided to try it. Bake Ravioli was a hit! It was the first pan of food to go! Thanks for a great recipe!

  • This recipe was excellent, however for my personal taste I add a little more pasta sauce.

  • we tried the baked ravioli . it was great the kids and my husband who usually turns up his nose at pasta said it was great. and easy to make. thanks for the great recipe. we will be making this again in the near future.

  • Very good and so easy! I preferred a bit more pasta sauce, and added dash of crushed red pepper in between layers. I also baked for 40 minutes because frozen ravioli wasn’t heated through enough at 30 minutes. This will be great for an upcoming holiday potluck. Thank you!

  • I made the baked ravioli tonight and thought it was pretty good. I added a lot more sauce than the recipe called for and I did use the ground turkey which I seasoned with Italian seasonings and minced onion. It was very easy and would even make a meal suited for a casual dinner party and is portable which would make it great to take to new moms or new neighbors.

  • My family truly enjoyed this meal. I made a few minor changes. I browned some Bob Evan's hot and zesty sausage and some minced onions before I added a large jar of pasta sauce and spiced it up quite a bit (with your typical Italian spices). The result was most delicious. This is a keeper. Thanks a lot.

  • Wow! Did not know there actually was a recipe for such a dish, and here I was patting myself on the back, thinking I came up with a new dish. Just the other week I wanted to make something quick for dinner and since I had some cheese ravioli in the freezer and tomato sauce in the pantry, I decided to mix it all up and bake it. Basically, the process is similar. I cooked the ravioli, warmed up the tomato sauce and added in some sautéed onion, garlic and spices. I layered it with Italian Blend shredded cheese and topped with grated Parmesan. Baked until bubbly and slightly browned (took about 20 minutes) and garnished with chopped fresh parsley and some basil. I call this my Lazy Lasagna. :) My picky-eater husband who loves Italian food approved the dish. Next time I will try it with a different kind of ravioli and add meat/sausage as Robbie's recipe suggests. I bet it will be delicious. You can't go wrong with classic Italian ingredients! And just like lasagna, this will freeze well. Although, I doubt you'll have any leftovers.

  • We loved this dish! Much better than spaghetti casserole. I partially thawed the ravioli for a quicker bake time. I also added a few things while browning my hamburger such as minced garlic clove, fresh sliced mushrooms & a bit of basil. After draining & returning to heat I added the sauce & also parmesan cheese. Covered & simmered for about 10 minutes. Then prepared casserole. It was absolutely delicious!! Thanks for the great recipes.

  • Just tried the Baked Ravioli last night and it was a huge hit with the entire family-- which is unusual. I loved how easy and quick it was. I did add more sauce like many had said and I am glad that I did. Thank you for a meal that is now a permanent part of our menu!!

  • This was awesome! I used vegetarian faux ground beef and added layers of mushrooms and spinach. Per one of the other comments I backed it for 40 minutes instead of 30 and was greeted by praise from friends and family.

  • Great Recipe! Very easy! I also added more sauce.

  • i have made this a few times and to change it up i decided not to use the ground meat but instead breaded and fried chicken for chicken parmigiana and instead of putting it on angel hair pasta I put the chicken on the top layer so it could bake with the raviolis..... a quick meal....that my family loves... If anyone is interested I have also used the raviolis to make a vegetable lasagna... with spinach, zucchini, and other fresh vegetables...

  • This was good. Like others, I added onions and extra garlic to the sausage mix. It did need more sauce. I also suggest par-boiling any pasta before baking. This might be why the sauce is baked out.

  • I love this recipe. I made for the 1st time last night. Unfortunately had to use tortelleni b/c the store was out of ravioli. But we do love it.

  • tried the baked ravioli and it is delicious and very easy.My friends and family loved it.

  • This recipe is awesome all my family loved it I did exactly as written by you. Thanks for the great recipe.

  • Just tried the recipe. It was great. I added a little more sauce and cooked it for 45 minutes and it was a big hit. Thanks for the recipe!

  • I wanted something fast and easy to prepare after a long day at work. Awesome!

  • This is a fast, easy recipe that my entire family enjoyed. The first time I made this it seemed to take longer than 30 minutes to bake therefore the second time I prepared I boiled ravioli while ground beef was browning.

  • I made this for my finicky bunch and they LOVED it. I added some additional ingrediants to the jarred sauce including, garlic, onion, parmasean cheese and italian seasoning. I also used ground beef and ground sausage. Awesome and so easy. Thanks for the great meal!!!

  • i don't cook but this was so easy and DELICIOUS

  • I'm making this tonight but instead of cheese ravioli, I'm using italian sausage stuffed ravioli and adding ricotta and mozarella as my layers, much like I'd do with a regular lasagne. My mouth is watering already!

  • Wow this was good. I wish I had this recipe years ago when my kids were younger. They will enjoy it as well now and they have it for their kids. Yummy recipe.

  • Great tasting recipe, very simple and quick! I decided to omit the meat and used one sliced zucchini and two small boxes of chopped frozen spinach, thawed and drained. I used whatever cheese I had in the house which was part mozzarella and parmesan. Delicious!

  • I completely followed this recipe, and it was a one of the best dishes served up to company. Everyone complimented the cook! Thank you for your guidance.

  • It's so simple to make and yet so delicious. I made it for girls night and all the ladies raved about it. I am making it again for my family to try.

  • This is a wonderful dish, so easy, yet soo good. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  • Try this recipe variation: Use alfredo sauce instead of spaghetti sauce. Add a generous sprinkle of parmesan cheese (I prefer shredded but the green can works too). You can also add a sprinkle of "italian seasonings" herb blend over the top and/or inbetween layers.

  • Excellent recipe and much faster if the ravioli are at least partially if not fully cooked first. More sauce is also to my liking. I'm wondering if Kim simply forgot to mention to cook the ravioli first! All in all, great alternative to lasagne or baked ziti, etc. Thanks, Kim!

  • This is a great recipe. It was a hit with my husband and myself. I did add a few veggies to the mix and a little more sauce and cheese, but it was great!

  • Thank you some much for this easy & quick Baked Ravioli my family enjoyed it very much! In a family of 5 this dish was gone in 30 minutes! I will be making it again soon. I added a little more sauce and more mozzarella cheese!

  • I loved it! if you are in a bigger hurry try getting a few cans of the family sized Chef Boyardee Ravioli and a couples bags of shredded mozzarella and parmason (SP) cheeses and layer the cheeses in between each can of pasta..its quick extremely easy n everyone loved it.

  • My husband's response to this dish, "It's okay, but let's not make it again". (In all fairness, he grew up with a mom who made homemade lasagna all the time) So I guess I won't be making this one again!
