If you’re in the mood for an incredibly simple throw-and-go dinner, this lazy lasagna with ravioli is about to be your new favorite recipe. It requires almost zero prep time, and it’s pure unfussy comfort food.

With so much delicious cheese and ravioli packed into this dish, I highly recommend pairing it with a side of tasty veggies like Kale Chopped Salad, Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts, Roasted Frozen Broccoli, Garlic Butter Green Beans, Green Pea Salad, or Roasted Frozen Cauliflower.

Ravioli Casserole Ingredients

This dump-and-cook dinner is rocking just four simple components:

  • Cheese ravioli (I used some fresh from the refrigerator section, but you can use frozen)
  • Marinara – storebought is great but you can also use homemade like Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce or Freezer Spaghetti Sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese
  • Teensy sliver of butter or cooking spray

Variations

Use any flavor of ravioli that you like; it doesn’t have to be cheese. Love spinach or meat or lobster (lobstah)? Go for it! 

Feel free to add in some spinach or finely chopped kale to the sauce to make it a touch healthier. If you want to add any veggies like zucchini or mushrooms, make sure you saute them first to reduce the water that will be produced.

Any meat you might want to add to the sauce should be cooked on the stovetop before adding it to the ravioli lasagna. Lorie over at Lemons and Zest swears by adding thinly sliced cooked meatballs to baked pasta dishes. Interested? Check out these Air Fryer Meatballs.

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • If you use frozen ravioli, don’t thaw them prior to adding them to the baking dish.
  • You can assemble this ahead of time and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to bake. If you’re prepping it more than two hours ahead of time, increase the sauce by 2 tbsp because the pasta will absorb a bit as it sits.
  • To make yourself a meal prep genius, double the recipe to make two pans and freeze the extra.
  • To freeze: assemble, cover with foil, and store in the freezer for 2-3 months. Bake from frozen; you’ll need to add about 5 more minutes of cooking time.
  • This recipe has not been tested with gluten or dairy-free products. Results cannot be guaranteed using specialized ingredients.

  1. I am always on the look out for delicious crowd-pleasing dinners.  My daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter  come over weekly for dinner and I prefer meals that I can prep ahead of time so I am not in the kitchen for their visit.
    Plus my granddaughter absolutely LOVES pasta.  I’ll definitely be trying this one!
    Thanks!  5 stars
