Baked Ravioli

A baking dish of Baked Ravioli

Baked Ravioli is the most simple weeknight dinner that anyone can put together for a delicious meal.  Prepared sauce and pasta make this the easiest meal you’ll ever make.  Adding just few extra ingredients will make this a hit on those busy nights when you don’t have time to cook. 




  1. Preheat the oven to 350º. Pour a small amount of oil in an 8×8 inch baking dish and swirl so the bottom is covered.
  2. Boil a large pot of water and place ravioli/tortellini carefully in the water, letting them cook for about 2-3 minutes or just until tender. Carefully drain.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the marinara sauce and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl and microwave until the cream cheese has melted. Add in the parsley and thyme.
  4. Cover the bottom of the baking dish with pasta. Spoon some sauce over the top and a light sprinkle of cheese. Repeat layers until all the ravioli and sauce is used. Cover the top with the remaining cheese.
  5. Cover with foil and bake until the sauce bubbles and the cheese on top melts, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan and chopped basil.
