I can’t really lay claim to this recipe. Our financial advisor mentioned it in passing, and I was like, “WAIT! Can I blog that!?” He said yes, so here I am!
And perfect timing, because Whole Foods sent me a few products to try out and in the box were these delicious looking organic tomato sauces from Muir Glen.
This post is brought to you by Whole Foods Market and I received products in exchange. All opinions are my own.
Muir Glen’s tomatoes are field grown and vine ripened under certified organic practices — no synthetic pesticides, no chemical fertilizers. The tomatoes are harvested in late summer at their peak of ripeness and delivered to the processing facility within hours of picking and triple-washed to guarantee no cleaning agents are present. Muir Glen products are available at Whole Foods Market!
I’ve always read tomatoes canned in glass taste better than those canned in metal, and from my experience this is true. The Muir Glen San Marzano plum tomato sauce tasted as close to my own homemade sauce as I have ever tasted from a store bought jar. I thought about throwing some of the Fire Roasted Diced tomatoes in the dish, but wanted to see how just the sauce version came out first. (I’m thinking fire-roasted pizza with banana peppers for those diced tomatoes now!).
So… how do make this so-easy Layered Ravioli Lasagna Hack!? It’s so simple you’ll cry.
30 large frozen ravioli
1 jar tomato sauce
2 cups shredded mozzerella cheese
Ladle some sauce in the bottom of an 8×8 casserole dish. Layer 9 raviolis in the bottom. Top each with a hearty scoop of sauce. Remember these raviolis will need to cook in the sauce instead of being boiled in water, so be generous.
Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of this first layer. Repeat layering – you should get three layers. Be sure to end with cheese!
Cover with foil.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes or until all cheese is melted and bubbly!
Now wasn’t that so easy? No lasagna noodles to boil. No goopy ricotta cheese to mix and scoop. I am loving this easy lasagna hack and plan to make it again!
