Ravioli Lasagna Recipe (tnt)
I've had to learn to take some shortcuts with my cooking because of my disabilities. I was delighted when a friend shared this recipe with me. It is simpler to prepare, and every bit as good as the traditional lasagna.
1 or 2 26 oz jar spaghetti sauce (Prego or your favorite)
1 30 oz bag frozen cheese ravioli, unthawed
1 10 oz pck frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry and finely chopped
1 8 oz pkg mozzerella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 14x9 baking dish with cooking spray and spoon in a third of the sauce. Arrange 12 ravioli on top and scatter the spinach over them. Top with half of each cheese. Cover with another layer of ravioli and remaining sauce and cheese. Cover with foil and bake 25 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 minutes more, or until bubbly.
*Note: For a heartier dish, I add 1 lb. each cooked, drained and crumbled Italian sausage and ground chuck to spaghetti sauce and use the extra jar of sauce. A can of drained mushrooms is good too, if you like. Simmer for a while to let the flavors mingle before assembling dish.
