Awesome Ravioli Lasagna
Why I Love This Recipe
Ok, so I've literally never written down a recipe before in any format. I love to cook and don't measure but I'll try and ballpark here. Let's just say I'll never be a baker, lol!
So, this recipe is supposed to be "easy" because you don't have to cook the pasta but there's one element that is somewhat time consuming. Well two, actually because I made my sauce homemade because I don't care for the jarred stuff but I'm sure it would be fine for this. Whenever I use jarred stuff, I soup it up a bit with extra sauteed onions and garlic anyway.
So, here's the ingredients, pardon me if i don't get the order right. Remember, I'm not good at writing these and again, am ballparking stuff so don't be too hard on me. Gonna sound very amateur: Feedback on writing style is appreciated!
Ingredients You'll Need
Foil pan that's around 9x14 and at least 4 inches deep
1 1/2 lbs sausage (turkey or regular)
1 1/2 cup coursely chopped roasted red pepper (jarred is fine, but i roasted mine over charcoal the day before)
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil (double or triple up if fresh)
About 3 cups marinara
Enough frozen ravioli (square) for two layers in a 14x9 pan. (I think I used Cento, which i recommend because it's the small square ones but they're all attached so you don't even have to lay out individual ravs, just put the whole sheet down.)
2 lbs shredded mozzarella
6 oz parmesan or romano cheese
Cook sausage in frypan, breaking it up and crumbling as you go. Once cooked, remove from heat and mix in chopped red pepper, thyme, oregano, basil and set aside.
Pour 1 cup marinara in bottom of foil pan
Put one sheet of ravioli on top of marinara
Spread sausage mixture evenly over ravioli layer
Sprinkle half the shredded mozzarella over sausage layer
Sprinkle half the parmesan (or romano) over mozzarella
Put other sheet of ravioli over the mozz/parmesan layer
Pour on remaining sauce, making sure to cover all the exposed ravioli
Sprinkle remaining mozzarella over sauce
Sprinkle remaining parmesan (or romano) over mozzarella
Cover tightly with non stick foil and bake in an oven pre-heated to 375 for 1 hour.
Let sit at least 20 minutes before serving.
