What is Baked Ravioli?

  • Baked Ravioli is a delicious pasta dish that is prepared and baked like a casserole.
  • Instead of cooking the noodles and pouring sauce over them to serve, you cook the noodles and bake it mixed in with the sauce.
  • The ravioli and the sauce being baked together is the perfect combination of cheese and meat sauce served all in one dish.

How do you make Baked Ravioli?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook ground beef and season with garlic salt and pepper.  When beef is almost done cooking add minced garlic and diced onions and cook until beef is no longer pink.
  3. In a large bowl combine, cooked noodles, marinara sauce, alfredo sauce, diced tomatoes, and beef mixture.  Stir in 1 cup mozzarella cheese and cream cheese until fully combined and cheese has melted.
  4. Place mixture in a 2 quart baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray, and top with remaining 2 cups of mozzarella cheese.  Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, then broil on high for 2 minutes. Garnish with fresh chopped basil and oregano.  Serve immediately with warm french bread.

How do you reheat Baked Ravioli?

  • Reheating pasta with sauce can be done, but only up to three days after cooking.
  • Simply heat your oven to 375 degrees F and transfer your ravioli into a baking dish or ovenproof dish and cover with foil.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until ravioli is heated through. To make it even better, remove the foil the last 5 minutes of reheating and top with mozzarella cheese to revive the gooeyness.
