Easy Ravioli Bake

This recipe has so much flavor, I really enjoy it.  You can use any type of ravioli that you want (chicken, cheese, spinach, etc.).  I used a “florentine” ravioli from Wegmans which is a combination of ricotta cheese, spinach and garlic.  It’s nice because it has great flavor and it cuts the saturated fat down a little since there is more then just cheese inside.  To make this recipe healthier, you can swap out the suggested mozzarella cheese topping and instead sprinkle with grated parmesan like I did.  I hope you like it!

Easy Ravioli Bake– very slightly adapted from Cooking Light

Serves: 4

2 (9 oz) packages refrigerated or frozen ravioli’s of your choice

Cooking Spray

1 cup white onion, chopped

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

4 garlic cloves, minced

6 tablespoons tomato paste

1/4 cup dry white wine (or water if not on hand)

3/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. dried basil

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

1/8 tsp. black pepper

4 (14.5-oz) cans no salt added diced tomatoes (I only used 3 cans due to the size of my pan and it turned out to be plenty)

1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded part skim mozzarella cheese Sprinkle of grated Parmesan or Romano cheese


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.  Drain well.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  3. Heat a large non-stick pan or dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray (I added a little bit of extra-virgin olive oil).  Add onion, bell pepper, oregano, and garlic.  Saute 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.  Add tomato paste and next 6 ingredients, stirring well to combine, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat.  Add pasta to tomato mixture, tossing well to combine.  Spoon pasta mixture into a 13×9 glass baking dish and sprinkle evenly with mozzarella cheese. 
  4. Bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes.  Top with a generous sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese.
