Ravioli Lasagna gives you all of your favorite lasagna flavors, but requires only a fraction of the time to make! This recipe is busy family friendly, and it is about to be your newest favorite meal!

We absolutely love lasagna. It is so savory and the perfect comfort food with all of that ooey-gooey cheese. However, some days we just don’t plan ahead and can’t make the time for a classic lasagna.  Ravioli lasagna is just as satisfying and a huge time saver for busy families! So, bust out your favorite frozen ravioli, because this is a total family favorite meal.

  • What type of ravioli should I use in ravioli lasagna?

    We love to keep this classic with cheese ravioli, but you can use any ravioli that you like: beef, spinach and cheese, the possibilities are endless! We use frozen ravioli over fresh packed because they are far less expensive, but both will work in this recipe. 

  • Meat Options:

    You can always stay classic with ground beef, or a mixture of ground beef and sausage. If you are looking for a lighter version, ground turkey and ground chicken are acceptable options as well.

  • Can I use store bought spaghetti sauce or marinara?

    We honestly never use store bought, now that we make our own spaghetti sauce at home! We absolutely love the flavor, and always have extra jars on hand. You can always substitute with your favorite store-bought marina sauce though. If you decide to do this, simply skip adding in all of the individual ingredients in step 2 where you make a spaghetti sauce from scratch, and just pour in your jar of store-bought spaghetti sauce.

  • Make Ahead and Freezer Instructions:

    Prepare and assemble your ravioli lasagna as directed. Then, cover and refrigerate for up to 48 hours before baking.

    To freeze, cover your assembled ravioli lasagna in multiple layers of plastic wrap and a final layer of foil and place in your freezer. When ready to bake, allow to thaw in the fridge overnight. Cooking time will vary, but anticipate a longer cooking time than initially called for.

  • Storage and Reheating Instructions:

    Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave in 30 second increments until warmed through, typically 90 seconds-2 minutes total. To reheat a large amount at once, use an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and heat until warmed through.

Hi Rachel,
I love your recipes, easy , yummy and heavenly. I can not wait to make ravioli lasagna . Just need to clear up one thing, you do not say to cook the ravioli first so I assume you use them frozen. I know they cook very quickly. Please clarify if you use them frozen or cooked. Thanks

Lasagna is our traditional Christmas eve dinner, this Ravioli Lasagna made this a much easier dinner and had raves from everyone. I doubt I will go back to the old recipe. Got lots of requests for this.

I am trying this recipe for the first time. I am using fresh ravioli. Do i boil the ravioli as per package instructions or just use them straight from the package ?
