4-Ingredient Ravioli Lasagna Recipe

Life is beyond busy right now. I feel like I am running around in circles and never get a minute to catch my breath. I am not complaining because I like being busy, especially with fun stuff like our house, the boys, the blog, etc. but I am tired. Some days I don’t know if I will make it, but then I get a smile from Maxwell or hug from Caleb and I keep going. Those boys keep me going, I just wish I had their energy:)

Dinner time is the hardest for me. I am usually exhausted and not in the mood to cook dinner because on most days I have already made a few recipes for the blog. Sometimes those recipes can be dinner, I love those days, but on baking days I have nothing to serve my family for dinner.

On days when I am tired and not in the mood to cook, I turn to one of our favorites, 4-Ingredient Ravioli Lasagna.

4-Ingredient Ravioli Lasagna Recipe

You heard me, you only need FOUR ingredients to make this lasagna. How is that possible? Let me tell you my little secret. I layer frozen ravioli with marinara sauce and cheese and it tastes just like homemade lasagna!

I like to use spinach cheese ravioli, but feel free to use your favorite ravioli. And even better news? You don’t even have to boil the ravioli. Just put the little raviolis in the pan with marinara sauce and cheese and bake! So easy!

If I have some of my homemade marinara sauce in the freezer, I use it, if not I use DeLallo’s jarred marinara sauce. Both are great options for this recipe!

This quick and easy ravioli lasagna is great for busy weeknights or easy entertaining. Everyone loves it and will think you slaved over making lasagna all day! If you have time, serve garlic bread on the side. The bread is perfect for soaking up the extra sauce!

If you are craving a comforting, filling, and delicious meal after a busy day, make my 4-Ingredient Ravioli Lasagna. It is for sure to hit the spot and requires very little effort. This is one of Caleb and Maxwell’s favorite meals and we hope your family enjoys it too!

Prep Time
10 minutes
Total Time
55 minutes


  • 2 25-ounce jars marinara pasta sauce
  • 2 30-ounce packages frozen cheese ravioli (I like to use spinach cheese ravioli)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves optional garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Spread half of a jar of marinara sauce evenly across the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Add 1 package of ravioli in an even layer over the sauce. Top with the rest of the half jar of marinara sauce. Sprinkle 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese over the sauce. Add another layer of sauce, ravioli, sauce, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
  3. Spray a piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, sprayed side down. Bake the lasagna for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbly. Remove pan from oven let sit for 5 minutes. Garnish with basil, if desired. Serve warm.
  4. Note-You don't have to thaw or cook the ravioli first, just put it in the pan frozen. We like to serve garlic bread on the side!

  1. I know what you mean about having the energy of your kids. If I had a quarter of their energy and vibe…I’d be in great shape! 4 ingredients, it doesn’t get any easier than this. Looks so tasty.

  2. This looks fantastic. I serve raviolis on a regular basis but this will put a new twist on it, and looks super easy. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. I’m always looking for simple and quick and tasty recipes to make when visiting my grandkids. I’m usually running low on energy by the end of the day after playing with a six year old and one year old twins, and still want to take the chore of cooking dinner away from my daughter-in-law. This one will be made on my next visit. Thanks!

  4. So cheesy, so easy, so irresistible! I don’t feel like cooking dinner MOST days (I’d rather be baking cookies), so will stock up on ravioli and make this soon 🙂

  5. I will definitely be adding this to my week night rotation. Dinners are the hardest for me to plan too! Love that I don’t have to boil the ravioli; it makes for a great one pan meal!

  6. Hey.,what should i say,this looks exactly fantastic. I serve raviolis on a regular basis but this will put a new twist on it, and looks super easy. Thanks for the recipe 🙂 Luv it 🙂

  7. Was reading through your recipe and came across your use of “unthawed”.
    FYI: thawing is the process of unfreezing. Would “unthawing” be to refreeze? The correct word would be “thawed”.

  8. Just made this last night! Since I didn’t have spinach-cheese ravioli I added frozen spinach (5 ingredients for me!) and it was SOOO good.

    So simple and tasty!

    I am dreaming about the leftovers!!

  9. Made this for dinner tonight using my own sauce. It was wonderful. Hubby and son went in for seconds. Thanks!!

    This is my go-to recipe for Halloween night! We are ‘that house’ on Halloween and I have many helpers. I make two pans, one like the recipe and the other with portobello mushroom ravioli and vegan cheese. Everyone raves how good this is. When I’m feeding vegetarians/ vegans, yours is the first site I visit. Last week, I fed 6 vegans for a few dollars by making the veg chili mac. No one could believe how delicious and satisfying it was. Thank you!

    1. Yes, you can bake it and keep it in the fridge or freeze it. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days and freeze for up to 1-2 months.

    So easy and way good!!! I found frozen ravioli 18-22 oz. and so I used 2 smaller bags of ravioli than the recipe called for. It worked fine!

  12. We owe a couple of friends a dinner “on us.”  AND we are just beginning to have workmen running piplines for natural gas and installing our natural gas heating/cooling system.  SO…your Ravioli Lasagna will be served on the night they come to dinner!  A baguette of garlicy french bread will accompany it with Vanilla ice cream for dessert.  I am calling them today to set up our dinner.  Thank you SO MUCH for this amazingly quick, delicious recipe!!

    I make this in batches for me and hubby, and freeze. He loves it…I top it off with chunks of mozzerella cheese. I use the little aluminum pans w/lids, and bake and the last 10minutes take lid off…..yummy

    I made this for a family of 5 who visited my home – we all loved it, and enough leftovers to eat again and again 🙂 I loved that it was so easy to make and used so few ingredients. Since the kids love meat, I added ground turkey (also added 2 cloves of chopped garlic when cooking the meat) to the marinara sauce. I don’t know if it was because of the meat but I did need 2.5 jars of marinara sauce. I would probably also add more mozzarella cheese between the layers. It was a hit, and I’d definitely make it again — very family-friendly.

    I make this often.  One in the oven now.  I added a variety of veggies (cauliflower rice, asparagus tips, cut-up mini carrots) that would have been discarded at the end of our rental period.  

  16. Do you think you could prepare this, freeze it, and then thaw/bake later? We spend thanksgiving weekend preparing meals for the insane months ahead, adn this one looks so easy to prep 1 or 2 that day.

    Easy to make. Family loves it. I love this recipe because it can be made quickly with ingredients I usually have on hand and popped in oven when unexpected guests arrive. Add a salad and dessert and all is well! (and I am not spending all of my time in the kitchen).
