Thanks to my cute friend, Loni, this is a delicious and easy way to make lasagna! We had it for "Sundee" birthday dinner yesterday and it was a hit! Mrs. Sam's Club and Mrs. Costco sure can make cooking a breeze! Sam's Club carries the Artisan Fresh brand of ravioli and it comes in a 2 pack. Costco carries a different brand but they both taste the same. They are stuffed with chicken and cheese and some herbs. The two pack will make a 9x13 pan of "lasagna" but if you want a smaller amount, only use one pack and make it a 9x9 pan. You could actually use any ravioli! A good idea for taking a quick meal to someone (especially if you forget and it's 4 o'clock)! I may or may not have done that a few times!!
1 two pack of stuffed ravioli (see above)
1 small container Ricotta cheese
1 container shredded Parmesan cheese (or a blend)
Your favorite marinara sauce
Spoon a small amount of marinara sauce in bottom of 9x13 pan. I used a bottle of Ragu mixed with a little leftover sauce I had from spaghetti last week. Lay one of the two packs of ravioli in a single layer on top of sauce. Spread Ricotta cheese on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. sprinkle with a layer of Mozzarella cheese. Spread with a layer of marinara sauce. Repeat the next layer without the Ricotta. (There is only Ricotta in the middle).
I actually made two of these yesterday and left Ricotta out of one of them--some in my family don't like it. Bake at 350 for 30 min. Serve with a nice green salad and garlic bread.
