Ravioli Lasagna

This is a post from monthly contributor Karen from The Saving Cents Mom.  


Ravioli Lasagna sounds complex but it is so easy to make!  I never make traditional lasagna because it seems so complicated and time-consuming.  When making this simple recipe, you save time by using frozen cheese-filled ravioli instead of the traditional lasagna noodles.  Ravioli Lasagna is not only easy to make, but it is also a delicious dinner that the whole family will love.


Ravioli Lasagna



  • 1 lb. of Ground Beef or Italian Sausage
  • 1 24 oz. jar of Spaghetti Sauce
  • 25 oz. bag of Cheese-filled Ravioli (frozen)
  • 1 16 oz. container of Cottage Cheese
  • 1 14.5 can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 cups of Mozzarella Cheese



1.  Preheat oven to 350°.


2.  Brown ground beef or Italian sausage.





3.  Spread a layer of spaghetti sauce (about half of the jar) in a 9×13 casserole dish.





4.  Put a layer of frozen cheese-filled ravioli (about half of the bag) on top of the spaghetti sauce.





5.  Spread the meat, cottage cheese, and diced tomatoes evenly on top of the ravioli.





6.  Add another layer of spaghetti sauce and ravioli on top.


7.  Spread the Mozzarella cheese evenly on top.





8.  Cover and bake for 45 minutes.  Remove cover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.


Ravioli Lasagna is a simple and kid-friendly dinner to make.  Not only does my family go back for seconds but everyone wants the leftovers the next day too.  If you are looking for more easy-to-make recipes like Ravioli Lasagna, check out Crockpot Ravioli and Lasagna Casserole.

20 Crockpot Chicken Breast Recipes


20 Chicken Recipes for Your Slow Cooker

Chicken has gotten to the point where it’s actually cheaper to eat than beef.  It’s pretty sad, isn’t it?  I remember when you could get ground beef for 99 cents a pound, but chicken was still closer to $2 per pound.


I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of eating dishes made with chicken breast.  I love how easy it is to cook it in the slow cooker.  I tend to make it easy on myself and buy the frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the 3 or 5 pound bags in the freezer section.  Sometimes, I cook it straight from frozen and other times I thaw it out in the microwave.  Either way, it cooks up nicely in the slow cooker…and there’s lots of great dishes you can make with it!
