Spinach Ravioli Casserole
1 jar (24 to 26 ounces) marinara sauce
1 ¼ cups water
1 package (24 ounces) frozen beef or cheese ravioli
3 to 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 box (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Mix marinara sauce and water together in a large bowl. Spoon half the sauce into a 9 x 13 casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Top with half of the ravioli, mozzarella cheese, and spinach. Repeat layer. Top with Parmesan cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 to 40 minutes or hot and bubbly.
Can you use fresh Spinach in place of the frozen ?
Hi Susan. Sure! You can use fresh spinach. I would use about 3 to 4 cups. Just give it a rough chop first. Then add it as instructed. Thanks! -Amy
So glad you liked it! The sausage in there sounds great! Thanks for sharing!
I made this last night. It was fantastic! I used cheese ravioli, then browned some turkey Italian sausage and made a layer of that in the middle. That bumped it up a big notch! I used frozen ravioli and it did take quite a bit longer to bake. I cooked it for 1 1/4 hours, then let it stand for 15 minutes. The amount of liquid was perfect to cook the ravioli. Next time I plan to thaw the ravioli and then I would think that an hour in the oven at 350 degrees would be perfect. Thanks, Amy, for this great recipe! And did I mention: quick, easy and delicious!
