Spinach Ravioli Bake
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Bake: 40 min.
This recipe was a breeze to put together and was delicious. I loved the amount of spinach In this dish too.
I added some ground turkey but it was really great! Will definitely make again.
11/25/2019 I prepared this recipe. I'd used frozen jumbo-sized ravioli and 24-oz. of pasta sauce-the ravioli size was 24-oz. I'd kept the spinach and Parmesan cheese as is and I had used reduced-fat shredded Mozzarella cheese. Sampling this dish, I found the recipe to be very good.
This was a quick, easy weeknight meal. I just rearranged the order of the ingredients so that I ended with sauce and cheese on top. I also made sure to use a quality sauce since there wasn't any real cooking involved, just reheating.
I am giving this 4 stars but only after I tweaked it. The basic recipe was okay - but the order of ingredients and added ingredients needed some help - or they did to my way of thinking. I sauted 1/2 pound of ground beef in finely diced onion, salt and pepper and minced garlic. I also cut this recipe in half as there is only one of me for dinner. I used 1/2 package of the spinach and 2 cups of Prego worked fine for the 2 layers. I did cook my ravioli's in my pasta boat in the microwave for 16 minutes first. I layered sauce, spinach, ravs, cooked ground beef then cheese in my 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Came out great when baked in a 350 over for 35-40 minutes to assure that the cheese was totally melted and everything was piping hot. Served with garlic french bread and a small green salad.
This recipe is decent. I followed some other reviewers tips and used the whole jar of sauce and covered it for the last 20 mins of baking. Also the layers are listed wrong. I did ravioli, spinach, sauce and then the cheeses. I would also recommend maybe using fresh spinach. It still came out well and tasted good
Quick and easy, fits the bill. A full jar of 24oz sauce is better, and next time I will put all the spinach between the two layers. Seems like that would be the best place.
It's ok. The order of layers is wrong; the spinach is too close to the top and becomes brown and crisp. I even covered it for the first 20 minutes as suggested by other reviewers. I also added the whole jar of sauce (its only an additional half cup), but think it would have been fine with 2 cups as stated in the recipe.
I used "fresh" ravioli (from refrigerator section) not frozen. I also added dollops of ricotta cheese between the layers and a top layer of the grated parmesan cheese (when baked, it forms a nice golden brown crunchy top layer).
Very good and easy! I added a pound of hot italian sausage to the sauce, and used refrigerated tortellini and ravioli. I also only used half of the spinach.
