CHEESY RAVIOLI LASAGNA — Layers of ravioli, marinara sauce and cheese combine in this easy, lasagna-style dish the whole family will love!

Cheesy Ravioli Lasagna

I love a good lasagna, but they can be pretty time consuming to make. Which is why I love this Cheesy Ravioli Lasagna so very much!

It’s a snap to put together and my whole family loves it. This non-traditional lasagna has all the flavors of the classic Italian dish, without all the work. And it seems I can’t go wrong when I serve my family ravioli in any way, shape or form!

Because who doesn’t love pasta stuffed with cheese? I actually keep some ravioli in my freezer for recipes like this one.

I really like to use ground turkey in this recipe. I prefer the texture to ground beef or sausage, and my family can’t tell the difference.

Not to mention, it’s a bit healthier–not that it matters too much with all the cheese in this recipe. I just season it up with some Italian herbs and spices and it’s perfect in this dish.

You could do the same thing with ground beef, or even Italian sausage (although you may not need as much seasoning if you go with the sausage option). I haven’t tried it myself, but I suspect you could even sneak in some vegetables.

That’s what’s so great about this dish! It’s easily adapted to suit your family’s tastes. It’s definitely one to keep in the recipe box for those busy weeknights when you need something that’s quick and easy to prepare.

I hope you love this quick and easy weeknight meal as much as my family does!

Layers of ravioli, marinara sauce and cheese combine in this easy, lasagna-style dish the whole family will love!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 (24 oz.) jars pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 (20 oz.) packaged refrigerated cheese ravioli
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic to the skillet and cook until tender, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add turkey, along with all of the seasonings, and cook until meat is cooked through and no longer pink.
  4. In a large bowl, stir together pasta sauce and water. Spread about 1 1/2 cups of sauce over the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  5. Spread one package of ravioli in an even layer over the sauce. Top with half of the turkey mixture, half of the remaining pasta sauce, half of the mozzarella, all of the Parmesan cheese and half of the basil. Repeat using the remaining ravioli, turkey, sauce and mozzarella cheese. Reserve the remaining basil.
  6. Cover and bake for 35-40 minutes. Uncover and bake about 15 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted and golden and the sauce is bubbly. Remove from oven and garnish with the remaining basil before serving.
