Easy Cheesy Ravioli Lasagna
Also called “Lazy Lasagna” because this vegetarian version is super easy to make and requires few steps. The taste is amazing. If you’re a fan of cheese, then you’re going to love this dish.
Layers of ravioli, homemade Alfredo sauce, cheese, and fresh spinach. What else can you ask for? To me, a hot casserole is the perfect comfort food after a long day.
Since I usually bake lasagna with tomato sauce, I decided to variate my usual recipe with an all-white version. It goes wonderfully with cheese and ravioli. Next time I’ll add some chopped artichoke hearts for an additional texture.
If you’re in a rush or simply don’t want to make the sauce, you can buy the jarred Alfredo sauce and use it instead.
Now let’s talk about the cheese… I used 2 kinds to add some flavor and melting power. For those reasons, I chose Sargento® Shredded Mozzarella which is shredded in larger pieces and Sargento® Chef Blends® Shredded 6 Cheese Italian, shredded fine. Great meals start with cheese shredded fresh of the block.
Did you know that the Sargento® Shredded Cheeses are always shredded from blocks of real, natural cheese? Click HERE for more information and details.
Mondays and Wednesday are my busiest days. I come home from soccer with my girls around 6:30 pm. At that time, I have to start dinner, help them with homework, and make sure they take a shower.
This ravioli lasagna has very little prep so it’s perfect to whip up in a moment. I usually make the sauce in advance and leave it in the fridge until ready to use. My girls sometimes help me assemble it. They think it’s so much fun.
