Lately, I have had some friends who have been distracted with different medical needs and so it has been busy in the kitchen whipping up pans of multiple dishes to be delivered so that they have one less thing to worry about at night.
One of my easy meals is Ravioli Lasagna. It bakes from the frozen state. It doesn't a require a lot of work. And it is enjoyed by most people because it includes all "safe" tastes...meaning, most kids will eat it.
26 ounce jar of marinara or pasta sauce
two 13 oz. packages of frozen cheese ravioli (found in the freezer section)
1 1/2 or 2 cups of shredded part -skim mozzarella
Spread 1/2 cup of the sauce in the bottom of the foil baking pan.
Spread 1 package of ravioli in a single layer on the sauce.
Top with 1 cup of sauce and 1/2 cup of mozzarella.
Layer the second package of ravioli on top, then 1 c. sauce and 1 cup of mozzarella.
Cover pan with foil and freeze until ready to use or bake covered at 400 for 30 minutes.
Then uncover and bake an additional 5-10 minutes.
To bake frozen Lasagna: preheat oven to 400. Bake covered 1 hour. Remove foil and continue baking until cheese is melted and starting to brown and the middle is hot (about 25 minutes or more).
