I call this oven baked ravioli “lazy lasagna” because with all of the layering, it really does taste and feel just like lasagna. Baking the pasta definitely gives it a much richer flavor because the sauce gets nice and thick, and the browned cheese adds that extra toasty zing.

An excellent dinner idea for busy moms and dads! My kids love this simple and delicious meal.

Simply preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and grease a 9×13 baking dish. Next, spread about 3/4 of a cup of your pasta sauce onto the bottom of the pan.

Arrange half of the frozen ravioli in a single layer over the sauce.

Top with half of the remaining pasta sauce.

Top with half of the cheese.

Repeat your layers, starting with the remaining frozen ravioli.

Drink a beer (optional).

Top with the remainder of your sauce and the rest of the mozzarella cheese. I also like to sprinkle on about 1/3 cup of grated parmesan for that extra smokey flavor, but it’s not necessary. There’s lots of cheese going on here!

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown and bubble. Let it cool for about 10 minutes before serving, and then dig in!

This 3 ingredient recipe is quick, easy, cheap and SO YUMMY! What more can you ask for? I’m know I’m not the only busy mom out there with picky eaters. By the time dinner comes around I’m too tired to even think about dinner, let alone spend all night in the kitchen.
