How to make Easy Ravioli Bake
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees. And oil a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Step 2: Into the bottom of the prepared baking dish, spread about 3/4 cup of your marinara sauce. Over the sauce, arrange half of the frozen ravioli in a single layer, top with half of the rest of the sauce, followed by half of the mozzarella cheese.
Step 3: Beginning with the remaining frozen ravioli, repeat the layers and end with the rest of the sauce and mozzarella. If desired, sprinkle over the Parmesan.
Step 4: Using aluminium foil, tent the baking dish. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown. Remove from the oven when done and allow to cool for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
Step 5: Enjoy by itself or with garlic bread, salad, or veggies.
If desired, you can mix it up with beef, chicken, or spinach stuffed ravioli. For other varieties, add layers of pepperoni slices, sausage, ground beef, fresh basil leaves, veggies, or garlic.
For this recipe, you can swap marinara with Alfredo sauce.
