BAKED RAVIOLI CASSEROLE
Summer’s finally here! I’ve finally found a jarred spaghetti sauce that I can really get into. When I make my homemade sauce I cook it all day. Now for me being in the kitchen all day is fun but in the summertime I want to spend as little time as I can in there. Thanks to Classico Riserva Pasta Sauce I can whip up a gourmet healthy meal in about a hour.
Classico Riserva are made using all natural ingredients with no artificial flavors and sugar added. Classico Riserva’s vine-ripened tomatoes are picked at the peak of sweetness and are perfectly balanced with herbs and spices, extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of sea salt, then slowly simmered to perfection. With the first bite you’ll know you’re fixing something special. It’s like opening up a bottle of good wine when you open a jar of this gourmet sauce. Classico Riserva is the newest addition to the Classico line of pasta sauces and is available in five varieties including: Marinara, Eggplant & Artichoke, Roasted Garlic, Arrabbiata and Puttanesca. “Open a bottle of the good stuff!”
Gather all of your ingredients first. I love that this recipe only uses 4 ingredients!
Brown your ground beef or turkey if you desire. Add 1 jar of Classico Riserva Arrabbiata Sauce to the pan with 1 cup of water. Place enough sauce on the bottom of the casserole dish;to just cover it.
Next add a layer of the frozen ravioli on top of the sauce. I love that their is no need to thaw the ravioli first, making this a quick and easy dinner for a weeknight.
Add a layer of sauce and top with the cheese. Repeat. Then bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
You’re going to love this sauce, I promise! You can adapt this recipe so many ways. Leave out the beef for a vegetarian or side dish. Add some chopped zucchini, grated carrots or a layer of blanched cauliflower.

We make a ton of casseroles, usually as a way to clear out the cupboards
and freezer of things that have been up there too long. You can make
them countless ways, and when you throw cheese on top, the kids will not
complain about it. They usually contain a meat, a pasta or rice, some veggies, and condensed soup. These sauces, with the variety of flavors they come in, would be a great substitute for the condensed soup.
