Easy Ravioli Lasagna

Pre-made ravioli is a short-cut to have lasagna after a busy week full of work and school.  A simple green salad on the side completes this meal.  Recipe serves 6.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 ounces hot pork Italian sausage (or mild)
  • 4 ounces 90% lean ground sirloin
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 (22-ounce) bag frozen whole-wheat spinach and cheese ravioli
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Coat the pan with cooking spray.
  • Add the sauce, beef and garlic; cook 4 minutes until the meat is browned, stirring to crumble.
  • Stir in the marinara sauce, salt and red pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer.
  • Remove from heat and add the ravioli; tossing to combine.
  • Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Spoon the ravioli mixture into the dish and top with the mozzarella cheese.
  • Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Uncover, sprinkle with the Parmesan.
  • Preheat the broiler (with the dish in the oven) and broil until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned (about 3 minutes).
