Baked Ravioli

I happen to LOVE Real Simple magazine, if I could only have (heaven forbid) one magazine subscription, Real Simple is the one I would have! It has fashion, organizing, life, recipes, everything I need in a magazine. This is a recipe from the Real Simple website, and it's a good one! Super easy (or should I say simple?) and tasty too. I halved it and baked it in two individual sized ramekins. The original recipe has chicken sausage in the ingredients, which I didn't have so I made my version even simpler. Three ingredients: mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce (buy a good kind, or make your own, you don't wanna go with the cheap watery kind here), and ravioli. Mix it all together, bake it for 20 minutes and there ya go. Dinner is served!

Baked Ravioli
adapted from Real Simple
Makes 4 servings
2 cups marinara sauce
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
16-18 ounces fresh or frozen ravioli

Cook ravioli according to package directions, drain and return to pot.
Toss with marinara sauce and about 1/2 - 3/4 cups of cheese. Transfer to a shallow, 2 quart baking dish, or divide among individual ramekins.
Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until bubbling and beginning to brown.
Real. Simple.


  1. This does sound good and it's a change from the normal boiled ravioli. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Real Simple magazine is one of my favorite magazines too. I am also going to make a Ravioli/Lasagna from Real Simple this weekend. My daughter loves all things ravioli.

  3. I like this twist on an easy dinner. Thanks for sharing.

  11. You've inspired me to make dinner tonight (as opposed to my original plan, which was to just eat the cookie bars that I made earlier!) I don't have ravioli, per se, but I do have some dried, cheese-filled pasta from Trader Joe's that I think will work equally well :)

  12. I usually prepare my ravioli in the crockpot. I've never tried them in the oven before. I think I'll make them this way the next time I put raviolis on our menu plan!
