I came upon a recipe that I’ve been wanting to try for a quick and easy Lasagna dish and I decided to make it over the weekend to have for Sunday lunch. The recipe was super easy and fast to make and one of the best lasagna dishes I’ve ever eaten. It was just the two of us Sunday (rare) and between us, we almost ate the entire dish which should feed four. It was that good.
The recipe calls for the following ingredients:
2 cans of ravioli
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 cup of cottage cheese
1 cup of frozen spinach
1 cup of Italian cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Most of the ingredients I had on hand, except the ravioli which I picked up on my last shopping trip. I’m sure if you wanted to make your own ravioli it would be delicious too but it wouldn’t be as easy to make as the recipe I’m posting (I’ve never made ravioli but I hope to sometime in the future, it’s one of those dishes I’ve been wanting to make but haven’t gotten around to it yet).
Gather all of the ingredients together and if you are going to cook this at the same time you mix it up, go ahead and preheat your oven to 375 F. Spray your dish with cooking spray and set it aside.
Place your frozen spinach in a microwave-safe dish, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 2 minutes. I bought spinach that I could place in the microwave straight from the box. I used my kitchen shears to slit a hole in the top and I then placed it on a microwave-safe plate to heat.
While the spinach is cooling, open the can of diced tomatoes and let drain.
Combine the 2 cans of ravioli, the drained diced tomatoes, and the Italian seasoning in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir well but don’t break the ravioli. Cover in plastic wrap and heat on high for 3 minutes and 30 seconds or 3 to 4 minutes.
While that is in the microwave, squeeze any moisture out of the spinach and place in a bowl. Add cottage cheese and black pepper. Mix well.
Place half of the ravioli mixture in a baking dish, then half of the spinach mixture. Use half of the cheese (1/2 cup), then repeat layers.
Bake 15 minutes or place in the fridge to cook the next day. When you are ready to cook it, preheat the oven to 375 and cook for 30 to 45 minutes. It took about 40 minutes for me to heat the entire mixture and melt the cheese after sitting in the fridge all night.
This truly was the easiest and the best-tasting lasagna I think I’ve ever made. I will be fixing this for our Ladies Auxiliary meeting towards the end of the month. Ravioli Lasagna, salad, garlic bread, blackberry cobbler, and sweet iced tea. I have a feeling it will be a hit.
I love easy recipes and this seems like it will please my entire family! The best part is that it sneaks in some extra veggies!
What an easy, kid friendly recipe! I know this would be a hit with kiddies everywhere! Awesome!
Lasagna is one of my favorite dishes! I don’t make it much though, as it takes so much time. So any lasagna recipe that takes a little time and still tastes great is worth a try! Thanks for sharing!
What a great “lazy girls lasagna!”. Love how it’s all mixed in one bowl!
My kids are huge lasagna fans. I like that this recipe is only 15 minutes. This is perfect for those busy nights
My kids loves lasagna and yours looks delicious as my lasagna now.
Lasagna is one of my husbands favorite pasta dinners!! This sounds great we make ours in the crock pot often.
We really love making a lasagna, my kids loves it cause it is so yummy and tasty.
We eat canned ravioli. This would be a great way to mix it up a little. It does get old after awhile.
Wow that is my kind of meal. Simple and fast! That is awesome!
Gotta say, I love lasagna and I love anything quick to make! This seems perfect.
I would have never thought to use canned ravioli as a base for lasagna. This look good and I love easy meals! Several people in our house love lasagna so this will have to go on the “make” list!
Oh wow, it does look like it can be done in 15 minutes! I love lasagna, the more cheese in it and soft cheese on top the better for me!
This looks like an easy and heartwarming dinner. I love making casseroles on wet Spring nights–so comforting!
I love making this because my husband and kids love how it has ravioli and spinach in it. I usually use sour cream instead of cottage cheese.
Ooooo this lasagna looks pretty tasty!!! Loving how quick it can be made! Great for a busy day 🙂
You had me at 15 minutes – that is absolutely amazing! And it looks so good!
This looks like an interesting dish- we would have to do gluten free raviolis, but it would be something my kids would like I’m sure.
That’s a fun dish. I love all of the cheese. I like your Corning Ware dish too!
I love Lasagna. Thanks for the great recipe. Can’t wait to try it.
Made with ravioli! How interesting! I could do this!
Lasagna is one of my favorite comfort foods! This recipe is right up my alley…easy, quick, and delicious! I like that you added spinach to the dish!
Ooooh now that looks good! We are a huge pasta family, especially lasagna and I’m sure my kids would love it too!
This Sicilian girl thinks your recipe looks super good and wants to try it!
Thanks Sandy. It’s a Genesis them with a Modern Blogger Pro child theme. I just hacked it up to suit me :).
BTW, I love your blog theme! Is this a Genesis theme? 😀
Wow, I’ve never seen it made this way before. It’s something I will definitely have to try! 😀
