Ravioli Lasagna

We love lasagna! But I never make it, mostly because its time consuming, and lots of steps involved. SO we always eat that awful frozen stuff. But I found a recipe and just did it. Its pretty easy.

1 24-26 oz jar marinara sauce
2 20 ounce packages refrigerated large cheese ravioli
1 20 ounce box frozen, chopped, thawed and squeezed spinach or fresh
2 cups shredded mozzarella (8oz)
1/2 cup grated parmesan

Heat oven to 375*F. Spoon a thin layer of sauce into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
On top of the sauce, layer a third of the ravioli, half the spinach, half the mozzarella, and a third of the sauce; repeat.
Top with remaining third of the ravioli and sauce.
Sprinkle with the parmesan.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Uncover and bake until bubbling, 5-10 minutes.

So I just did this in a 8x8 dish and I halved the amount of ravioli used to fit the smaller dish. That amounts to a dish with 2820 calories in total - I did all the math myself!

That sounds so awesome!

It really was good! And I was thinking how easy it would be to put anything in there I wanted, like a layer of ground beef or sausage!

Yummy! I actually had a women in our ward do something really similar. Instead of using marinara, she used butternut squash puree (You can find it at William Sonoma after Christmas for cheap!) It was really good!
