If you haven’t heard already, everyone is going crazy for Costco’s Signature Ravioli Lasagna. Add this crowd-pleasing classic to your menu of easy Christmas dinner dishes and you’ll be the talk of the dinner table—with no added stress.

Here’s why this lasagna is one of the best things to buy at Costco this holiday season.

It’s a Costco Favorite

The secret ingredient to what makes it so good? The beef and pork bolognese sauce. Costco-goers can’t get enough of it. They’re even making copycat sauces because they’re in love with the flavor.

This buzz-worthy Costco offering is stirring up some rave reviews from fans. Over on Bogleheads, user Obgraham describes it as, “without a doubt one of the best things (Costco) ever concocted.” Other people love how meaty it is. We definitely agree.

It’s Super Easy to Make

After preheating your oven, remove the plastic lid and cover the dish with foil. Slide it into the oven and you’re all set. Seriously. It’s as easy as that. In a little over an hour, you’ll have this meaty lasagna ready to go. Bonus: it tastes homemade. (Don’t worry…we won’t tell.)

As an entree, this 3.3-pound lasagna serves eight. Make it the star of your Christmas dinner with a side of scalloped root veggies and a roasted apple salad. Or, if you have a bigger guest list, turn it into a side and serve with holiday classics like roasted turkey and green bean casserole.

You Can Get It Without a Costco Membership

That’s right, you don’t need a membership, so there’s no need to trudge through the snow for this one. You can purchase your ravioli lasagna through Instacart. Keep in mind, though, Instacart’s prices will be higher than Costco’s, and it does not serve all areas (see if your city is on the list). Psst: if this is your first Instacart order, it’ll be free!

If you are a Costco member, you can order online at and get same-day delivery in many areas. Order fast—it won’t be under the radar for long.
