shortcuts: 4-ingredient ravioli bake

I’m back this week with Three Bridges gluten-free ravioli, with a dish so good – and so easy – that we are headed towards having it on a weekly basis.

I mean, it doesn’t get easier than four ingredients, does it?

Unless there is zero prep, too.

Oh – and one dish to clean.

Yeah, you want to make this tonight.

This 4-ingredient ravioli bake is just too delicious to be as simple as it is. Like, it has set the bar for how I want ALL of my dinners to be.

Simply layer your sauce, ravioli, spinach and mozzarella in a baking dish. Repeat. Repeat again. And bake.

I used Three Bridges Gluten-Free Butternut Squash Ravioli to step up the nutrition of this dish, and the whole family gave it a resounding thumbs up.

All you need is a simple salad – and maybe some garlic knots (recipe coming soon!) and you’ve got a yummy, satisfying meal that is perfect for even your craziest weeknight.

This dish is also super agreeable to change, so feel free to switch things up! Throw in some cooked and crumbled ground beef or sausage. Or maybe some bacon? And swap out the spinach for chopped broccoli or torn kale leaves.

4-Ingredient Ravioli Bake

(2) 9-ounce packages Three Bridges Gluten-Free Butternut Squash Ravioli
3 cups (24 ounces) marinara sauce, store bought or homemade (I’m a huge fan of Rao’s sauces)
5 ounces baby spinach
8 ounces shredded mozzarella

grated parmesan (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees; grease a 2 1/2 quart baking dish.

Cover the bottom of your dish with a thin layer of sauce. Top with 1/3 the ravioli, followed by 1/2 the spinach, followed by 1/3 the mozzarella. Top with 1/3 the remaining sauce. Repeat with 1/3 the ravioli, the remaining 1/2 spinach and 1/3 mozzarella. Top with 1/3 the remaining sauce. Finish with the remaining ravioli, sauce and mozzarella.

Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Remove cover, top with grated parmesan (if using) and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes and serve.

    I love making pasta and broccoli as a simple dish during the week.

    During the spring weekday dinners are always a rush, both boys play baseball and one juggles it with track. I normally plan meals in advance and do prep work while the kids are in school. Family dinners are very important to me and I make every attempt to have one most days of the week. I don’t do fast food…EVER! I haven’t ate McBurgerBell (my rendition of the big chains) in over 20 years. Lucky for the kids their Grandparents will take them there for lunch or dinner occasionally. With all that extra “garbage” said, our go to quick meal is French Toast. The kids gobble it up and I’m a big fan as well. Challah is the way to go and I like mine topped with caramelized bananas.
