Ravioli Smoothed in Sauce and Cheese

Ravioli Smoothed in Sauce and Cheese

This is a lazy man’s meal.  Frozen pre-made ravioli with jar red sauce, smothered with mozzarella cheese.  What could be better on a Wednesday night?  It has been a long week and I am really glad I decided to take a mental health day on Friday.  Even though it is going to rain all weekend, I will get three days to recover.

We don’t always have to make elaborate meals, they just have to taste good and this meal does.


1 package frozen ravioli, I used ravioli stuffed with spinach, ricotta, and asiago cheese

1 jar of your favorite red sauce

Lots of shredded mozzarella cheese

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. basil


Heat your oven at 350.  Place a little sauce in the bottom of a baking dish.  Layer the frozen ravioli in the baking dish then cover with the red sauce.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven, increase the temp to 400.  Cover the ravioli with the mozzarella cheese and place back in the oven until the cheese melts.  Serve alone or with a salad.
