There are moments in life when you just need to believe you are a rock star in the kitchen. With that believing, the old adage, “Fake it till you make it” may just come into play.
Am I even allowed to say that here? Absolutely!!
Sometimes we let so much guilt take hold of us about certain expectations when our heart’s desire is simply to avoid the drive through, slash our food budget and have precious time at dinner with the family.
That’s where this unbelievably delicious and oh, so Easy Cheesy Ravioli Bake comes into play. I’ve shared it at my 10 Minute Dinners site, but knew you needed to hear it too.
Yes, there are a lot of shortcuts with this simple 10 Minute Dinner (which honestly, will take you five minutes to prep), but when you serve this beautiful dinner, hot out of the oven, paired with fresh salad and a loaf of Italian Bread, you will be a rock start in your own kitchen and no one will be the wiser.
While you note in the picture that I added a layer of veggies to my dish, that is completely optional.
You can go straight cheese and I’m sure any toddlers or picky veggie eaters will love me for that. The best part of this meal is that you can get creative and add a layer of pepperoni, ground beef, or Italian Sausage if your family doesn’t want the vegetarian option. There are so many ways to improvise on this, but the basic recipe really includes only three main ingredients.
Can I call this Easy Cheesy Ravioli Bake a recipe?
Sometimes I feel like I’m cheating, but it’s so good. I guess those are the best kinds of recipe.
This is the kind of meal that is the best in comfort food, but disguises itself under the appearance of hard work. It’s PERFECT for large groups because you can just continue to double or triple the recipe and a GREAT cooking with the kids experience because your ten year old can master this recipe.

Are the ravioli thawed or cooked first? Maybe I need to re-read directions! Thanks.
I do not cook them first since they will cook as you bake them in the sauce. Off to check directions and clarify. 🙂
