Ravioli Lasagna -- My Interpretation
Ravioli lasagna -- a best of two worlds as far as pasta dishes go and an ease of preparation that makes me wonder why I hadn't thought of this years ago. Inspirational credit for this dish goes to my daughter-in-law who, with the care and feeding of five children, seeks always to work smarter not harder.
The beauty of ravioli lasagna, besides the final product, is both the ease and speed of preparation compared to traditional lasagna. Simply choose the type or types of ravioli you want, buy or prepare your favorite sauce (traditional red sauce or white sauce) and prepare to put them together in a casserole dish. This could also be made in a crock pot.
I used frozen ravioli. There is no need to that or cook them before assembling your dish. Just pop them in frozen and the over or crock pot will cook them, incorporating the sauce along the way. In addition, I added fresh sliced mushrooms that I sauteed with minced fresh garlic between the two layers of ravioli here. You can add anything you'd like or keep it simple -- it's all up to you.
