If you have been checking my site out for any length of time, you already know I am a major “cook from scratch” kinda mom. It saves money big time, but I will admit, isn’t always quick on time. I don’t usually make anything from scratch that takes more than about an hour total to prepare (unless its a little prep time the night before). This is a super easy to make, quick on time and low cost casserole that my kids ask for time and time again. It tastes exactly like lasagna, without all the fuss.
Cheesy Ravioli Casserole
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 pkg. frozen cheese ravioli, cooked and drained
2 c. small curd cottage cheese
4 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
In a 9×13 casserole dish, spread about a half cup of spaghetti sauce on the bottom. On top of the sauce, layer about half of the cheese ravioli, then top with about 1 to 1 1/4 c. sauce, 1 c. cottage cheese and 2 c. mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers again starting with the ravioli. Sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese and bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly. Allow the dish to stand for about 5-10 minutes before serving.
