3-Ingredient Ravioli Pasta Bake {No Boiling Needed}

This simple pasta dish was a creation that I came up with over the summer.  My hubby has to eat gluten-free.  So, we don't get much pasta and bread around here.  One Saturday, he was gone for the day and I decided to make this for myself and our daughters.  Without him around I wouldn't feel so guilty about eating all of this gluten in front of him.  (Thankfully, he doesn't have a sweet tooth like I do.  Hence all of the sweet treats here on my blog.)  Anyway, this was a success and we enjoyed every bite.  


2 (16 oz.) jars spaghetti sauce
1 (25 oz.) bag frozen ravioli (any kind)
2 c. shredded cheese of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spread ½  jar of sauce in the bottom of an ungreased 9×13 baking pan.
  3. Place half of the ravioli evenly across the sauce, cover with other ½ jar of sauce.
  4. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese, place remaining ravioli on top.
  5. Pour the other complete jar of sauce over ravioli layers, sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until ravioli is tender and cheese bubbles on top.
  7. Let stand 15 minutes to allow sauce to thicken.
