This is a fun spin on a traditional Italian baked cheesy lasagna that was inspired by my daughter’s love of cheese ravioli. It is super easy to assemble and tastes delicious. And needless to say very kid-friendly, all of your picky little eaters will be impressed when you make this homemade ravioli lasagna for them. So here is an easy recipe of perfect lasagna.
In the flavor department we are sticking to the classic recipe ingredients so it is still same mouthwatering, crunchy, filling lasagna that we all love. It is an ultimate carb comforting pasta dish that just looks oh so pretty and appetizing on the plate while it is very simple to cook.
The main components of this delicious dish with white sauce are pretty basic: noodles, sauce made with Italian sausage, cheese ravioli, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses (except ricotta and mozzarella you can also use parmesan or other cheese). The craziest thing is that I am saving some time by using frozen ravioli and not even bothering to boil them so I recommend it. Trust me I would rather spend those 10 extra minutes walking my puppy or playing with my kid then staying at the cuisine. It is all about being time efficient in this household of busy people.
This is a great make-ahead family dish as well, assemble before hand and bake when you are ready to serve. Super convenient. It is absolutely freezer friendly too so you can make it and bake or even just reheat frozen lasagna later.
Lasagna is a perfect ultimate comfort dish for dinner. Rich, cheesy and filling, nobody will be able to resist this fantastic hot offering.
You can also jazz it up and make it even more fun adding some special ingredients: use spicy Italian sausage for the heat lovers, throw in some chopped veggies like zucchini, mushrooms, broccoli or any other of your favorite vegetables(and what a great way to sneak some extra nutrition into your kids diets), add eggs, spinach, garlic, onion and spices to the ricotta cheese for an extra flavor kick.
Anyway you choose to make this easy lasagna it is luxuriously cheesy, extra comforting and carb cozy food. It is equally pleasing for adult or kid palettes. And just under an hour you can have a delicious meal on your plates that the whole family will love.
